The ’90s will never die.

Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are both in talks to reunite for a “Mad About You” revival, according to TVLine.

The NBC sitcom, which ran from 1992 and 1999, followed a documentary filmmaker and a public relations specialist in New York City.

Over its seven-year run, “Mad About You” won a Golden Globe, a Peabody and five Emmys.

Hunt won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy four years in a row.

The finale of the show included a 22-year flash forward that showed daughter Mabel as a filmmaker working on an autobiography about her family.

The reboot would likely focus on Paul and Jamie “grappling with empty-nest syndrome in the wake of now-17-year-old daughter Mabel’s admission to college,” according to TVLine.

“Mad About You” would join a number of ‘90s reboots, including “Will & Grace,” “The X-Files,” “Full House” and “Roseanne.”
