"Northern Exposure" is the latest long-canceled show set for a revival.
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.
Other shows recently brought back years after their finales aired include "Full House," "Twin Peaks," "Gilmore Girls," "Will & Grace," "Roseanne" and "Murphy Brown."
