The news comes just two months after Nelson’s drama Parenthood tearfully ended its six-season run. (Oh Bravermans, how we miss thee!) While the show was on air, Nelson, who played family leader Zeek Braverman, called out NBC for not promoting it enough.

Coach ran for nine seasons from 1989 to 1997, and centered on a university football coach and his trusty sidekick, Assistant Coach Luther Horatio Van Dam (Jerry Van Dyke). The series also starred Shelley Fabares, Bill Fagerbakke, and Clare Carey. It’s yet to be revealed which other cast members — if any — may return for the sequel.
