When New York's rough and tumble female detective duo hit our TV screens in 1982, they made serious waves.

Cagney and Lacey was made as an all-female twist on the "buddy comedy" cop movie formula, and made a lot of fans during its seven-season run.

Now, the show is set to return to the airwaves, with new leads and a few modern twists on the classic formula.

The Classic Show

CBS

The original series starred Sharon Gless as Cagney and Tyne Daly as Lacey, a pair of NYPD detectives solving crimes in the city's fiction 14th precinct.

It stood out from other shows because of the chemistry between its leads, the clever plots, and its sense of humor.

It was also a hit with critics, with Gless or Daly nabbing the Leading Actress in a Drama Emmy six years in a row.

After being cancelled in 1988, the show was even revived for a number of TV movies. But now, after 30 years, it's finally getting a full-fledged reboot.

Change of Scenery

Before casting news was announced, a handful of details trickled out about the new show that made fans raise their eyebrows.

First, Cagney and Lacey are being transferred from the streets of New York to sunny Los Angeles.

The series will also feature different personalities for its leads: Lacey will be the no-nonsense mentor for her protege, former track star Cagney.

Those are definitely a departure from the original show. But now that we know who will play Cagney and Lacey, it's easier to imagine the new series.
