It's back to the old stomping grounds for Candice Bergen!

The 71-year-old actress shared the first cast photo from the Murphy Brown revival on her Instagram on Thursday. Bergen, who reprises her role at the titular character 30 years after she first played Murphy, posed next to her original castmates Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud, as well as newcomer Nik Dodani and writer-executive producer Diane English.

"MURPHY BROWN...together again. Coming to your neighborhood TV in the fall. Just in time...," Bergen captioned the group shot. Absent from the pic is Jake McDorman, who plays Murphy's son, Avery, in the new series.

In January, CBS announced a 13-episode series commitment for the Murphy Brown revival. Bergen's character -- a tough female journalist, and later, a single mom -- will "return to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate."

The original series ran from 1988 until 1998 and received 18 Emmys, three Golden Globes and three Screen Actors Guild awards.

Revivals are all the rage in Hollywood. NBC's Will & Grace revival series has already been renewed through its third season. ABC's Roseanne premiered last month and was recently renewed for a second season.
