Right now, Hunt is actually in the process of filming a reboot for Mad About You with co-star Paul Reiser. Since last year, Hunt remained hopeful that she would be able to do a Mad About You reboot.

“The dream is to get to do it,” she tells PEOPLE. “I have remained very, very close friends with Paul. Reboot, or no reboot we have lunch once a month. We really enjoy and care for each other.” Sounds like she’s still pretty close with her co-stars and we can all look forward to a reboot soon!
