The cast will certainly be stacked as reports confirmed MC Lyte is joining the show as a detective. She showed her anticipation on Instagram as well.

News that the New York Undercover reboot was heading to ABC made headlines in December. The original creator, Dick Wolf (who is the brains behind shows like Law & Order and Chicago PD), will team up with Universal Television and ABC Studios to produce the series. Wolf will also serve as writer alongside Ben Watkins.

The original series aired on FOX from 1994-1998. And while some of its lead characters died on the show, it’s been confirmed that some of the previous cast members like Yoba will be returning to reprise his role as Detective J.C. Williams.

Who remembers the original theme song though?
