According to The Wrap, another actor has been replaced in Hulu’s new comedy Reboot.

Just as Judy Greer was previously tapped to replace Leslie Bibb in the series, now Paul Reiser will take up the role Michael McKean was cast in.

Reiser will play the character named Gordon, who created the fictional ’90s sitcom Step Right Up that gets rebooted.

He’ll star alongside Greer, Keegan-Michael Key, and Johnny Knoxville.

Steve Levitan, who won several Emmy awards for his work on ABC’s Modern Family is the series’ creator, writer, executive producer, and showrunner.

The series’s synopsis is as follows: “When Hulu reboots a late ’90s/early 2000s family sitcom (titled Step Right Up), its dysfunctional cast is forced back together and now must deal with their unresolved issues in today’s fast-changing world.”

Key will reportedly play a “fussy actor” who previously starred on the fictitious show. Knoxville will play a risque comedian who co-starred on the series. Greer will be the show’s lead actress.

Rachel Bloom (My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Calum Worthy (Austin and Ally), and Krista Marie Yu (Dr. Ken) co-star.

The series will be produced by 20th Television.
