The 90’s cop drama, New York Undercover might make a comeback! The mastermind behind NBC’s Law & Order and Chicago franchises and CBS’ FBI, Dick Wolf is looking to revamp the drama for ABC.

The reboot is apparently already in development, but not all the details have been finalized. The original series ran for four seasons from 1994-98 on FOX, and starred Malik Yoba, Michael DeLorenzo, Lauren Vélez, and Josh Hopkins. Yoba and DeLorenzo played two undercover detectives in New York City’s Fourth Precinct. The series was also the first police drama on U.S. television to feature two people of color in the starring roles. So iconic!

Unfortunately, the reboot reportedly might not include all the original actors.

The head of WME, LLC., Rick Rosen said: “It’s the type of franchise that you can redo, and you don’t necessarily have to use the same cast.”

Earlier this year, some of the original cast of the show had a bit of a reunion in Los Angeles.
