It’s been 26 years since Halle Berry starred in her movie debut alongside Eddie Murphey, in the hit romantic comedy/drama, Boomerang. Now, Halle is teaming up with Lena Waith, BET, and Paramount for a 10-episode half-hour television spin off.
“I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trail blazer in her own right–I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen,” Halle said in a statement on Monday
Focusing on the modern-day offspring of Berry and Murphy’s characters and that of the role now Riverdale recurrer Robin Givens played in the 1992 flick, the opener for Boomerang 2.0 will be co-written by The Chi creator Waithe and Ben Cory Jones. Having produced the Netflix pic Step Sisters with Waithe, Underground andInsecure scribe Jones will be the showrunner and an EP on the new Boomerang, which was first announced earlier this year.

The show is set to drop next year.
