Reba McEntire’s New Sitcom Is Official — What Is ‘Happy’s Place’ About?

Reba McEntire is making a comeback to scripted television! The renowned country singer and former star of “Reba” is joining forces with some familiar faces and a new beau for a new NBC series titled “Happy’s Place.”

The new sitcom puts McEntire in a setting fans have not yet seen her conquer.

  • McEntire started as Reba Hart in Reba on WB and CW from 2001 to 2007.
  • Several producers of that show are also working on Happy’s Place. Additionally, Melissa Peterman (Barbara Jean) will co-star.
  • Additional cast (per Variety) includes Pablo Castelblanco, Tokala Black Elk (1883), Belissa Escobedo and McEntire’s boyfriend, Rex Linn.

Here is everything we know about Happy’s Place, including the plot, cast, list of main characters and premiere date:

What Is Reba’s New Sitcom About?

Happy’s Place finds McEntire playing Bobbie, a woman who inherits a restaurant from her father. Soon she discovers a half-sister (Escobedo) she never knew she had. The two become unlikely business partners; in real life, McEntire is 69 and Escobedo is 25, so it’s safe to expect some generation gap humor.

Linn and Peterman’s roles (see below) position each to share the screen with the show’s star often. That could give the show a head start, given their on and off-screen chemistry.

Since the end of Reba, Peterman and McEntire have toured together and filmed many comedic social media clips together. Their timing is still very sharp.

Linn (formerly of CSI: Miami) appeared alongside McEntire in a made-for-TV movie called The Hammer and on ABC’s Big Sky. One hopes that if the two are lovers in Happy’s Place, they reach a different conclusion than they did on Big Sky, where McEntire’s Sunny kills husband Buck (Linn).
