Audiences will have another chance to ponder "Who's the Boss?" when that 1984-92 ABC sitcom returns for a sequel series.

The industry trade site Deadline.com reported Thursday that the show, being developed for the streaming service Amazon Freevee, reunites Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano from the original cast, reprising their father-daughter roles as Tony and Samantha Micelli. Set 30 years after the original series, it finds Samantha now a single mother living in the family home.

Mike Royce, showrunner of the 2017-20 Netflix/Pop revival of "One Day at Time,” and Brigitte Muñoz-Liebowitz, a co-executive producer of that show, are helming. The original series, created by Martin Cohan and Blake Hunter, centered on retired baseball player Tony Micelli serving as a nanny/housekeeper for busy advertising executive Angela Bower (Judith Light) and her son Jonathan (Danny Pintauro), with the late Katherine Helmond as Angela's mother, the saucy Mona Robinson. Danza, born in Brooklyn, spent his teen years in Malverne, graduating from high school there in 1969.
