‘Designing Women’ reboot: Original cast member Annie Potts says ‘Mary Jo’ should be governor of Georgia

On a recent episode of The Talk, Annie Potts confirmed details about the ‘Designing Women’ reboot.

“Yes, that’s true. Our wonderful creator Linda Bloodworth-Thomason is writing the script now, and I think it will be sort of a new generation type thing, but I’m hoping to be a part of it in some way. You know, I have the other thing [CBS' 'Young Sheldon'] going too, I’m awfully happy doing that, but I wouldn’t mind double dipping on that a little.” When asked where she’d like to see her character Mary Jo going, Potts shares, “I talked with Linda a little about that and told her I thought it was important that we see she had evolved… I said, ‘Can I be the Governor of Georgia?’ She said, ‘I don’t know if you could be governor, what about the Mayor of Atlanta?’ I hope by the time it happens they do have a woman governor in Georgia, for real.”

Designing Women is one of my all-time favorite show and I hope they find a way to have Potts and fellow alum Delta Burke (as Suzanne Sugarbaker) to recur. I doubt Jean Smart would be interested in reprising her role of Charlene) and original cast member Dixie Carter has died.
