Hey, Hollywood, Here Are 6 TV Reboots We Actually Want to See
But some of our favorite shows have been left out of this revival fever. Below we make the case for seven television reboots for Hollywood to make happen.
Here are half a dozen television reboots we’d actually like to see:
1. 30 Rock
Liz Lemon in the post-Covid era? Yes, please. With Kimmy Schmidt come and gone, Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski could do worse than revisit their acclaimed sitcom. We’re imagining a world in which Jack Donaghy had a Trump cabinet post and has since been shunned into obscurity, leaving Kenneth in charge of NBC.
2. Living Single
Check-check-check it out: This ‘90s comedy ended in 1998, the same year Sex and the City debuted on HBO. But for our money, if you wanna talk about four gal pals living it up in the Big Apple, it’s Khadijah, Max, Synclaire and Regine. Throw in Tiffany Haddish as a wisecracking Airbnb guest and it’s a guaranteed ratings bonanza.
3. Strangers with Candy
We’re thirsty for the kind of classy romance where people say things like “flying fig” and “holy shiiii….pwreck.”
5. What Not to Wear
From wrinkled jersey dresses to cutout leggings worn as pants, fashion crime is even more rampant now than when TLC canceled this guilty pleasure
Clinton Kelly and Stacey London did WNTW for 10 seasons. In his memoir, I Hate Everyone, Except You, Kelly revealed that, after all that time, he and London started to get on each’s others nerves. “We spent so much time together for 10 years … It was funny in the beginning when we completed each others’ sentences,” he told the Austin American Statesman, “but it got to be like, ‘Okay, we need a break from each other.’”
Eight years is enough of a break, right? And with The Chew canceled back in 2018, Kelly has some time on his hands.
6. West Wing
Puh-lease. We’re begging. Bring back President Bartlet.
