Also returning to “Mad About You” will be John Pankow, who played Reiser’s cousin Ira Buchman, and Richard Kind, who had a recurring role as Dr. Mark Devanow.
The program, which ran for 164 episodes on NBC from 1992 to 1999, stars Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser as married Manhattanites Jamie and Paul Buchman.
Hunt won four of the program’s 12 Primetime Emmy Awards, taking home four consecutive Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series trophies from 1996 to 1999.
After snagging her first Emmy, Hunt jokingly thanked Candice Bergen, a five-time winner for “Murphy Brown,” for removing herself from Emmy consideration after her final victory in 1995.
In 1998, Hunt famously became the first star of a current TV series to win a Best Actress Academy Award. She won the Oscar playing Jack Nicholson’s love interest in “As Good As It Gets,” beating the likes of Hollywood heavy-hitters Helena Bonham Carter, Judi Dench, Julie Christie and Kate Winslet.
