Reba McEntire announces that her 2000’s sitcom is coming to Netflix!

The country music icon shared the news via a Facebook post that reveals the show, Reba, will make its way to the streaming platform on May 6, 2024. Fans in the comment section were over the moon to hear that they will soon get the chance to binge their favorite episodes on a new platform.

One user wrote, “One of the greatest shows ever. I have watched it so many times,” while another said, “Can NOT wait!!! Loved it and watched every episode when it was on Reba McEntire!! Great and funny show and cast! ❤🥰👏” 

What Is The Plot Of Reba’s Sitcom?

The beloved series premiered on The WB and ran for five seasons, with the sixth season airing on The CW. From October 2001 to February 2007, viewers tuned in to watch all the hilarious antics and dramatic moments that unfolded amid McEntire’s life as a single mom raising her three children – Cheyanne (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), Kyra (Scarlett Pomers) and Jake (Mitch Holleman). Helping her navigate the chaos was her ex-husband (Christopher Rich) and his new wife (Melissa Peterman). Throughout its run, the show also featured plenty of special musical guests such as Dolly Parton, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and more.

Even though its been over 20 years since the show aired, the stars appear to have remained close. McEntire has even gotten the chance to work alongside some of her former castmates in her various TV roles.

Reba To Star In New NBC Sitcom

Over the years, there have been talks of a possible Reba reboot and while nothing has been confirmed in that regard, the “Fancy” singer did recently announce that she will be starring in a brand-new sitcom on NBC.

The still-untitled multi-cam project is not expected to have any connection to 2000’s sitcom, but it will find McEntire reuniting with Kevin Abbott, Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis, who all worked as executive producers on Reba. In addition to the former Reba teammates, Julie Abbott will also serve as executive producer. 

In January, NBCUniversal announced that the storyline of the new comedy pilot will center around Reba McEntire and the inheritance of her father’s restaurant. She then discovers that this property that has been handed down to her also comes with a new business partner in the form of a half-sister she never knew existed.

Deadline reported that this marks the first official pilot order for the 2024 broadcast pilot season, which was impacted by the dual WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The show does not yet have a release date.

The Country Star Has An Extensive Acting Resume

McEntire is clearly no stranger to being on the big screen nor the small screen. Along with starring in her very own series, she later appeared in shows like Malibu CountryBaby DaddyLast Man Standing, and Young Sheldon. On top of that, her acting resume includes roles in a variety of films such as Reba McEntire’s The Hammer, The Gambler Returns and more. 

The “Seven Minutes in Heaven” singer is currently in her second as a coach on NBC’s The Voice. Earlier this year, she returned to her iconic red chair for Season 25 alongside the first set of double chair coaches, Dan + Shay. 

The Voice airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
