Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Corbin Bernsen is set to reprise his role as Arnie Becker in ABC's pilot for a possible sequel series to legal drama L.A. Law.

The pilot will feature a more conservative Jonathan Rollins clashing with millennial JJ Freeman on the best path forward for the firm to effect political and legal change.

Arner Becker will be presented as a former lothario who hasn't changed since the 1980s, and who struggles with a shifting sexual and political landscape.

"I've often thought about revisiting L.A. Law and Arnie Becker over the years. Now seems the perfect moment in time to explore our fast-changing world through Becker's eyes. Fasten your seatbelts," Bernsen said in a statement.

Other former cast members are expected to return for the revival. Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) is writing and executive producing with Anthony Hemingway (True Blood, Shameless) directing the pilot.

The late Steven Bochco created the original L.A. Law, which for eight seasons from 1986 to 1994. Bochco's son Jesse and wife Dayna are serving as executive producers on the pilot along with Underwood.
