Raise your hand if you happen to’ve been dying for a streaming platform to have ‘The Nanny’ for years and years and years
Fran Fine is making her manner from Flushing, Queens, all the best way to HBO Max and that sound you hear is each thirtysomething millennial squealing in delight. That’s proper, Miss Fine, Mr. Sheffield, Niles the butler, Cece Babcock, Sylvia, Yeta, and the three Sheffield children will all be prepared for binge-watching starting April 1.
In case you want a refresher (how DARE), The Nanny ran from 1993-1999. Fran Drescher was the fashion-loving bridal salesgirl-turned-accidental-nanny who confirmed up on the fancy-shmancy Sheffield residence to supply her knowledge, humor, and sure — that snigger — to the just lately motherless Sheffield children.

Niles, Mr. Sheffield’s enterprise accomplice Cece, Fran’s mother Sylvia, and Brighton, Maggie, and Gracie made the all-star solid an absolute pleasure to observe.
Queen Fran Drescher herself introduced the information on Instagram yesterday, and actually, can all of us simply take a second to acknowledge how positively luminous she is?

Back in April 2020, Drescher instructed E! News that she thinks Fran and Max—who wed ultimately after seasons of teasing—would positively nonetheless be collectively as we speak, and Fran would both be working in trend or authorities. As solely Fran Fine Sheffield may do.
“I think Fran would have gotten involved in a fashion blog on how to look like a million bucks on a shoestring budget,” she stated. “Or maybe she might’ve gotten involved in local politics. She always did have a voice for the underdog, for the union workers.”
Oh, and in case one massive piece of The Nanny information isn’t sufficient to maintain you (the restrict doesn’t exist), Drescher is presently engaged on turning the present right into a Broadway musical with assist from ex-husband and present co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator Rachel Bloom. Ummm…YES PLEASE? Broadway can’t re-open quickly sufficient, and what an exquisite technique to welcome audiences again to the theater.
It’s made even higher as a result of, as solely actual ones would know, Mr. Sheffield is a big-time Broadway producer (suck it, Andrew Lloyd Weber).
“Peter came up with the brilliant idea that Fran and Max moved back to New York because he missed Broadway and, for lack of a better idea, Fran says, ‘Why don’t you do a show about us?’” Drescher instructed E! News. “And then the whole first season would be about him producing the show that’s actually on a Broadway.”
Honestly, the present is such an exquisite, heat, nostalgic band-aid over one craptastic 12 months. We want this. A Broadway present shall be a superb factor to stay up for, however for now, we’re all simply tickled about streaming the OG present.
As the theme tune suggests, “Who would have guessed that the girl we described was just exactly what the doctor prescribed?”
