The Buchmans are back! Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt reprise their roles in the limited event series.

Reprising their roles are original cast members John Pankow as Ira Buchman, Richard Kind as Dr. Mark Devanow, Anne Ramsay as Lisa, Jerry Adler as Mr. Wicker, Cynthia Harris as Sylvia Buchman, Carol Burnett as Theresa Stemple. Additional guest stars include: Cloris Leachman as Mrs. Mandelbaum; Kecia Lewis as Tonya Franklin-Devanow, the therapist wife of Mark Devanow.

"We are so excited to finally be doing this and thrilled to have Peter Tolan as our fearless captain," Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt said in a joint statement on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, when Spectrum Originals picked up the limited series. "We promise you the same funny and heartwarming show -- as soon as we can remember what's funny about being older. It's going to be great!"

On Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, the first six episodes dropped ad-free exclusively on Spectrum's On Demand platform:

"The Kid Leaves": When Paul and Jamie drop their daughter Mabel off for her first day of college, it quickly becomes clear that they have very different ideas of what their lives after children will look like.

"The Toothpick": Jamie spins out when one of her meticulously crafted scrapbooks documenting Mable's childhood disappears. Meanwhile, Ira shocks everyone (himself included) when he asks Lucia to marry him.
