The cast of the hit 90’s series ‘New York Undercoverreunited back in 2016 as part of TV One’s docu-series ‘Unsung’ and dished on their time on the show which ended nearly 20 years ago.

They reunited again earlier this year giving fans of the series so much nostalgia, and now one of the shows starts is ready to bring the series back to TV according to Essence.

Series star Malik Yoba told ESSENCE that if the powers that be were open to bringing the hit program back, he’d be open to reprising his role as J.C. Williams — the single father who held it down as a dad, lover, partner and friend.

“Listen, there’s a lot of stories to still tell,” Yoba said during an annual fundraising event for the New York City chapter of 100 Black Men. “And New York Undercover is a dope part of my experience.”

If on air today, Yoba believes the show would tackle some of the same issues it did in the past, like redefining masculinity, fatherhood, love, and taking care of community. But it could also tackle new subjects, such as navigating the political climate and the over policing of Black and brown bodies.

“You gotta have the things that people are dealing with and resonating with right now that inspire,” Yoba explained. According to him, that’s the “special sauce” that made New York Undercover what it was.

We’ve been here for it, are you?
