Lifetime Is Bringing Back Supernanny


In the words of Bruce Springsteen: Everything dies, baby, that’s a fact. But maybe everything that dies someday comes back. By which I mean, Lifetime is reviving the parenting reality TV show Supernanny.

Deadline reported:

The A+E Networks-owned broadcaster will launch the revamped version of the British format in 2020. Original host Jo Frost, who was the original supernanny in the UK version, which aired on Channel 4, and also hosted a U.S. adaptation for ABC.
Frost will infuse her 30 years of expertise to the issues facing modern-day families. With new social and behavioral challenges parents face today, Frost will bring hope and uplift families with her advice, techniques, and tips to iron out the chaos in their homes.

Cannot wait to revisit this artifact from the great mid-2000s era of hot-mess reality TV as a mother and feel simultaneously horrified, smug, and relieved—because that’s the point of literally any parenting TV show, right?
