ABC Orders 'Designing Women' Sequel From Original Series Creator

It would appear that ABC is moving forward with their Designing Women sequel series, which will apparently follow a new generation of Sugarbakers.

ABC Orders 'Designing Women' Sequel From Original Series Creator

The Hollywood Reporter says this new Designing Women WILL be a multicamera comedy like its predecessor, and will feature a group of new, young, female designers at an Atlanta interior design firm. Original series creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason will be writing the script and and executive produce along side her husband, Harry Thomason.

"I'm very excited to be working with ABC. And Sony has always been a great partner for Designing Women. Normally, I'm not a fan of reboots but Designing Women does seem to have the right fengshui for all that is going on right now. We could definitely have some fun," Bloodworth Thomason told The Hollywood Reporter.

There is no expected air date for the series yet, or any mention of casting at this time.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
