Reba McEntire Fans Are Screaming After Seeing the First Clip of Her New Show

It's time to declare 2024 the year of Reba McEntire. After her show-stopping Super Bowl performance, her turn as a coach on The Voice, the debut of brand-new music, and her record-breaking hosting gig on the ACM Awards, we're sure Reba is ready for a little R&R, but she's showing no signs of slowing down.

Instead, the 69-year-old country singer is heading back to the small screen for a starring role on a new sitcom, Happy's Place. The show, set for a fall premiere on NBC, follows the story of Bobbie (Reba), who inherits her father’s restaurant, only to discover that she has a business partner and surprise half-sister.

Happy's Place will be a reunion of sorts for Reba and Melissa Peterman, who starred together in Reba from 2001 to 2007 (the series is now available to stream on Netflix).

But that's not the only familiar face on the new series! Reba's boyfriend, Rex Linn, also stars as the restaurant's short-order cook. Rex is no stranger to acting, with credits in TV shows like Young Sheldon, Better Call Saul, Big Sky, CSI: Miami, and dozens more.

NBC shared the first clip of the new series on Instagram, and fans are already excited about its debut. They left comments like, "I’m dying to watch this 😍😂🙌," "OHHHHHH my goooooooooosh, I can't wait! I just freakin LOVE Reba and Melissa together! literally comedy gold! 💝💙 and then you add Rex! 🤯," and "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ratings powerhouse incoming." NSYNC star Lance Bass chimed in with a series of clapping emojis.

NBC hasn't given an exact release date, but we know how we'll be spending our Friday nights this fall!
