The country singer and multi-hyphenate performer is poised to return to television with a new sitcom. NBCUniversal announced Monday that they have ordered a still untitled pilot for a multi-cam sitcom that will star McEntire. She will also executive produce.

The logline explains, “Reba inherits her father’s restaurant and is less than thrilled to discover that she has a new business partner in the half-sister she never knew she had.”

Kevin Abbott, a writer and executive producer on Last Man Standing, Cristela, and the original Reba, will serve as head writer and EP for the series.

It has been over 20 years since Reba premiered. It starred McEntire as a middle-aged Texas-based mom coping with the end of her marriage, her husband’s infidelity, and her daughter’s teen pregnancy. The series ran for six seasons on the WB (the sixth season was on then-new network The CW), and it concluded in Feb. 2007.

The show, which also featured a hit theme song penned and sung by McEntire, lives on in syndication, most recently on the Hallmark Channel. The entire series is currently available to stream on Hulu.

McEntire has continued to act in the years since, including starring on the short-lived sitcom Malibu Country as a wife and mother wronged by her country music star husband. Most recently, she played mermaid Trish in Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, as well as recurring on Young Sheldon as hairstylist June Ballard and appearing on season 3 of Big Sky as ranch owner Sunny Barnes. She joined The Voice as a coach in season 24 and will reprise her role there this coming season.

The country star will also sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11.
