A spokeswoman for the network confirmed to PEOPLE that the project is in early development.
Johnson, 69, will reprise his role as the eponymous Bridges, and the show will pick up in the present day, with the character is “still running San Francisco’s Special Investigations Unit and confronting a changing city, a new boss and a world in which police work focuses on modern data-crunching and predictive policing,” THR reports.
So far Johnson, who will serve as co-creator and co-executive producer, is the only original cast member attached.
He starred opposite Cheech Marin, who played Inspector Joe Dominguez, as well as Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Jeff Perry, Peggy Sandow and Jaime Gomez.
Nash Bridges ran for six season on CBS, from 1996-2001, though the revival comes courtesy of USA Network and Village Roadshow.
