The trailer also reveals McEntire reuniting with Reba costar Melissa Peterman. She plays a bartender and friend at Happy's Place who gets caught up in the bickering and resentment as McEntire's Bobbie and Escobedo's Isabella learn to work together after the revelation that their father had a couple of families.

"It's whole new characters, a whole new scenario and a lot of our same team," Peterman told Entertainment Weekly. "The dynamic is gonna be that dynamic that we have, that natural one."

It has been 17 years since Reba ended its six-season run, which began in 2001. While McEntire hasn't starred in a sitcom since then, she hasn't been dormant. In addition to her legendary music career, McEntire has appeared in films, voiced animated characters, and had recurring roles in Young Sheldon and Big Sky.

McEntire has also been a judge on The Voice for the last two seasons. Earlier this week, NBC announced that McEntire will return for the show's 26th season after shooting down rumors that she was planning an exit. She will be joined in the judge's chairs by returning judge Gwen Stefani as well as newcomers Snoop Dogg and Michael Bublé.
