Looks like ABC liked the pilot episode!

“Congrats to everyone associated with ‘Malibu Country‘! We got picked up!!” Reba McEntire tweeted over the weekend, elated that her new sitcom will now officially run for at least one season. “We’re going to have so much fun! Can’t wait to get to work!”

ABC had already agreed to the pilot of the show, which stars the country legend as a divorced mom of three who moves from Nashville to Malibu, Calif., after discovering her country-star husband was cheating on her. Reba’s character and her kids will have to adjust to the very different world of Malibu, where she’ll also try to resurrect her own music career. Watch an extended preview of the show below.

“I miss the ‘Reba’ show so much, so it will be great to get back into the TV world again!” Reba posted on her website, referring to her self-titled sitcom that ran from 2001 – 2007 on the WB and CW networks.

Iconic actress Lily Tomlin will play Reba’s mother on the show. Other castmates include Sara Rue, Julietta Angelo, Justin Prentice, Jai Rodriguez and Owen Teague.

Reba will also act as an executive producer on “Malibu Country,” alongside her husband Narvel Blackstock and former “Reba” producer Kevin Abbott, along with Mindy Schultheis, Michael Hanel, Pam Williams and musician Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics. It’s not yet known when the first episode will air.
