Charles Shaughnessy Reveals Fran Drescher Has A Brilliant Idea For ‘The Nanny’ Reboot


Charles Shaughnessy is spilling just a few The Nanny secrets.

The 66-year-old actor spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the fan favorite show, which is now streaming on HBO Max, and revealed that Fran Drescher has some ideas on how to reboot the series.

“We’ve talked about it, and she actually had a really, really, I thought, genius idea,” Charles shared. “I just thought, ‘This was very smart.’ That’s all I’ll say.”

He added that he’s “very hesitant about anything” involving a reboot of the series. “[But] I heard that and went, ‘Oh, that’ll work.’”

Charles did open up about what led to the end of The Nanny in the first place and that was giving fans what they really wanted – Fran and Maxwell together.

“The fans wanted us to get together. The network definitely wanted us to get married, [but] we knew that that was kind of a death knell,” he shared. “When you’ve got a relationship built on this sexual tension, getting married is like the last thing you want to do…so, I think we kind of we did it but were like, ‘Oh well.’”

After the series debuted on HBO Max, fans were shocked to find out that this actor starred on it!
