The news of this reboot might have '80s kids excited and could prove a fun addition to the police procedural genre.

But what we do know is the iconic 1980s action-crime drama Miami Vice may be getting a reboot on NBC, with Vin Diesel and Chris Morgan as producers, Deadline reports.

The reboot has reportedly been in the works since last season, though no casting announcements have been made.

Don Johnson starred in the original series as Metro-Dade Police Department detective James “Sonny” Crockett along with his partner Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas), both of whom would work undercover jobs in Miami.

In 2006, Universal debuted a film adaptation that starred Colin Farrel and Jamie Foxx and was directed by Michael Mann, who executive produced the series.

The reboot will be written by Peter Macmanus (The Mist, Satisfaction) and produced by Universal Television, Chris Morgan Productions, and Diesel’s banner, One Race TV.
