Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless, the famous duo who brought Cagney & Lacey to life, reunited 30 years after the end of the revered television show.


The actresses stepped on stage on Saturday, June 2, during the 2018 British Soap Awards to present the Best British Soap award, which was won by Coronation Street.

Although the night was supposed to acknowledge all the nominated actors, actresses and series on television, Daly and Gless stole the show with their joint appearance at the ceremony.

As previously mentioned, 30 years had passed since Cagney & Lacey ended in its seventh season on CBS, in 1988. During an interview with Radio Times, both actresses revealed that the show opened the doors to many others.

According to Daly, at the time shows didn't follow the police officers home after the end of their shifts, so audiences weren't used to seeing what happened when they got home and took off their badges.


The fact that Cagney & Lacey portrayed the characters as having a life beyond their careers was groundbreaking and helped to increase the viewers' interest in the show.

Gless added that the show allowed NYPD Blue to exist and that the series was basically the same as Cagney & Lacey but featuring male leads who expressed their feelings.

Being the very first cop drama to have the main characters appear vulnerable was very important to Gless, who admitted that Cagney & Lacey did it much better despite NYPD Blue being a great show.

Recently, it was announced that a Cagney & Lacey reboot was being worked on and that it would feature Sarah Drew as Detective Cagney and Michelle Hurd as Detective Lacey.

While fans of the show hoped to see the dynamic duo back on television, CBS didn't approve the pilot and the 13-episode project was shut down. To learn more about Cagney & Lacey, follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
