Original cast members Faith Ford and Joe Regalbuto, who are returning to reprise their roles as Corky Sherwood and Frank Fontana, are also seen sitting together next to Grant Shaud who is returning as Miles Silverberg.

"Back in the saddle...or rather, the newsroom! This morning, the #MurphyBrown team reunited on set for the first table read of the season!" the official Twitter account of the Murphy Brown revival said.

Bergen posted on Instagram a photo of the table displayed with name cards for the stars and the script. "The first read-through. July 24, 2018 Thirty years after the original," she said.
