Nostalgic times come for everybody… and this time, nostalgia is coming to our screens. Broadcast networks, premium cablers and streaming platforms are relying heavily on the reboot as a tool to bring proven track records back to television.
Of course, a reboot won´t always work. But it´s clearly worth a shot.
And in this video we will be taking a look at 20 TV reboots we can´t wait to see in 2017 and 2018.
Number 20- American Idol:
The show ended just a little over a year ago, and it is already being brought back to life at ABC, with Ryan Seacrest once again as host.
Number 19 – Arrested Development
Netflix is bringing one more season with the entire main cast for 2018. The show was already revived in 2013, now it gets a second reboot.
Number 18 – Charmed
Before Supernatural had us following siblings battling evil, Charmed was the main show in the matter, featuring three sister witches in a small New England town. The CW is eyeing the revival for 2018-2019.
Number 17 – Curb your enthusiasm
This show makes it to the list, only because of its status as a great comedy show. But since it is Larry David, we never know if it´s a reboot or just a long hiatus since the last episodes aired in 2011.
Number 16 – Dynasty
We already saw Dallas come back, now it´s time for Dynasty and follow the feud between the Carringtons and the Colbys.
Number 15 – The First Wives Club
Rebooting a film with as big a cast as this one will prove to be a heavy task for TV Land. Alyson Hannigan, Mega Hilty and Vanessa Lachey will tackle the reboot.
Number 14 – Heathers
Reimagining the 80´s cult film. The idea behind this reboot is doing it as an anthology series, each season focusing on a different heroine and mean girls.
Number 13 – The Jetsons
The futuristic animated series will take us once again a century in the future to see how this beloved family lives 100 years from now.
Number 12 – The Karate Kid
This time named Cobra Kai, a comedy continuing what we saw in the 80´s, with what happens 30 years later for the main characters Daniel and Johnny. Premieres in YouTube Red in 2018.
Number 11 – The L Word
This show pushed the envelope in 2004. Now, over a decade later it can show a new push, once again.
Number 10 – Lost in Space
Rebooting a sixties series is always a risky option. Now Netflix is slating Lost in Space to premiere in 2018.
Number 9 – Magnum P.I.
Tom Selleck starred in this classic detective series from way back when. Now the show will come back as Magnum centered on Lily Magnum, Tommy´s daughter.
Number 8 – Miami Vice
A show that will be difficult to capture the essence of the original, and I am hoping to be proved wrong.
Number 7 – MTV Unplugged
Some of the best records from the nineties came from this show. Now, we can only hope the new incarnation holds its own.
Number 6 – The Munsters
This classic sitcom will come back, now on the East coast, focusing on a family of creatures in Brooklyn.
Number 5 – Psych
If this was a series reboot, it would be ranked number one. But since it is just a small chance, with a holiday movie reuniting the whole cast, it gets bumped to number five.
Number 4 – Queer Eye for the straight guy
Now that this show gets revived, it is time to bring back What not to wear and all is well.
Number 3 – Star Trek
This time called Star Trek Discovery. A prequel to the times of the Enterprise, Captain Kirk and Spock.
Number 2 – Tales from the crypt
Bringing back this eightes cult horro classic, may be the best or worst decision ever for TNT executives. No middle ground there.
Number 1 – Will and Grace
A sitcom classic from must watch television times at NBC is coming back for season nine September 28th and is already renewed for season 10.
