CBS is in development on a revival of the Emmy Award-winning 90s comedy-drama series Northern Exposure, with show creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey attached and Rob Morrow on board to reprise his role as Dr. Joel Fleischman.
According to THR, the series would serve as a continuation of the original show, with Joel returning to Cicely, Alaska for the funeral of an old friend, which reunites him with some of his former neighbours, along with a new set of quirky characters.
Northern Exposure premiered in 1990 and followed Dr. Joel Flesichman, a New York City native who moves to Ciceley, a small town in Alaska, to repay the state for underwriting his medical education. The show ran for 110 episodes across six seasons, while the cast also included the likes of Barry Corbin, Janine Turner, John Cullum, John Corbett, Darren E. Burrows, Elaine Miles, Cynthia Geary and Peg Phillips.
The Northern Exposure revival is being written by Brand, who will also executive produce with Falsey, Morrow and Ben Silverman. As yet, there’s no word on any other potential cast members.
