[ # ] Jean Smart talks about the Designing Women sequel
September 11th, 2018 under Designing Women

Since it seems like every show from the end of the last century is getting a reboot, revival or remake, it should be no surprise that Designing Women is one of them. Since there has not been much information about the sitcom, Jean Smart cleared things up on Good Morning America today.

Charlene Frazier told Robin Roberts, “She [Linda Bloodworth-Thomason] is doing, kind of, a sequel more than a reboot. Because unfortunately, we have lost Dixie [Carter], Meshach [Taylor] and Alice Ghostley, and it just wouldn’t be the same without them.” Then she added, “I really think these reboots, people want to see, they don’t want to see a new version of, necessarily, they kind of want to see the original or something completely different. But I think that Annie [Potts], Delta [Burke] and I will show up occasionally.

I would totally watch the sequel if Suzanne Sugarbaker’s pig Noelle was running the design firm now.

As she said, the show has lost three of its main characters, so without them, it will not be the same. Julia was the brains of the operation, Anthony was the yin to their yang and Bernice made them all seem a little saner. Yet, it was their combined nuttiness that kept us tuning in every week.

Now that Smart explained what we can expect from the sequel, does it make you feel better or worse about Designing Women coming back to the small screen?
