Rumors of a New York Undercover redo are true! Last year after the famous trio was spotted together, conversations of a reboot surfaced online and thanks to Dick Wolf and ABC, we now know Malik Yoba will reprise his role in a pilot ordered by the network. The former Justice By Any Means host and new star of The First Wives Club remake confirmed the news on Instagram.

So what can fans expect? Deadline says Yoba will reprise his role, 20 years later, as Detective J.C. Williams, who is “now overseeing the unit and the next generation of detectives.” The revival would follow “detectives Nat Gilmore and Melissa Ortiz as they investigate the city’s most dangerous criminals, from Harlem to Battery Park.” At this point, there’s no word on if Michael DeLorenzo or Lauren Velez will make an appearance.
