Bill Cosby–arguably one of America’s most-beloved comedians/TV stars–is apparently coming back to the small screen, more than two decades after The Cosby Show left the primetime airwaves on NBC. Cosby is reportedly in talks with that same network to develop a new family comedy starring himself.

According to Lesley Goldberg at

More than 20 years after The Cosby Show ended its run on NBC, Bill Cosby is returning to the network to star in a new family comedy.

Cosby is teaming with former Cosby Show producer Tom Werner of Carsey Werner for a new family comedy in which he’d star, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The comedy will be centered on Cosby, who will play the patriarch of a multigenerational family, like he did on NBC’s Cosby Show and CBS’ Cosby, and will include his take on marriage and parenting.”

The “Cos,” who is 76, shows little sign of slowing down. He still maintains a regular schedule of live appearances across the country, with his trademark storytelling style of stand-up comedy. Reruns of the smash hit series that breathed new life into the sitcom genre (and anchored NBC’s infamous “Must-See TV” Thursday evening programming in the 1980’s) can still be seen on cable TV.
