Reba McEntire is making an exciting return to television after nearly two decades, confirming her role in a new sitcom titled “Happy’s Place.”

After over 20 years since the beloved sitcom “Reba” first aired, Reba McEntire is returning to television screens with a brand new show, and she’s bringing along a few familiar faces.

During an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, she revealed that her former “Reba” co-star Melissa Peterman and her boyfriend Rex Lynn will be joining her on the show.

“We have been working on trying to get another show since we were canceled on the Reba show,” McEntire shared. “We got to do Malibu Country for one season. We’ve got the same producers, same showrunner, same writers and now we’re back with Melissa Peterman and Rex Linn, my boyfriend, and wonderful, wonderful cast and crew.”
