CBS is developing new episodes of the fish-out-of-water dramedy with its original star Rob Morrow onboard to reprise his role of Dr. Joel Fleischman, Deadline.com reported.

Variety said the story will find Joel returning to Alaska from New York for the funeral of a friend.

Morrow will produce the sequel series, along with his former co-star John Corbett, who played disc jockey Chris Stevens.

Corbett has not signed on to act in the reboot, however.

"Northern Exposure" initially ran 1990-95, and co-starred Barry Corbin, Janine Turner, John Cullum, Darren E. Burrows, Cynthia Geary, Elaine Miles and Peg Phillips.

Other shows recently brought back years after their finales aired include "Full House," "Twin Peaks," "Gilmore Girls," "Will & Grace," "Roseanne" and "Murphy Brown."
