Freddie Prinze Jr. is returning to television for the latest reboot (I know, I know, but it’s not like it’s The Facts Of Life) of Nancy Drew. Will 43-year-old Freddie be playing the teenage sleuth Nancy’s accomplice, nemesis or potential love interest? NO! He’s playing Nancy’s dad! It’s ok to cry. Time is happening to all of us. File this under: YOU’RE OLD.
All zero of you who were really hoping for the Mad About You revival to get the green light are in luck, as it did. The rest of us who scoffed at there being a need for Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt’s wacky, Murray the dog-less New York life in 2019 weren’t alone. The show was shopped around to major networks, and they all passed. If your revival isn’t led by a racist leading lady, you can high-tail it to glorified public access TV! But instead of NBC, its original home, Mad About You 2.0 will air on Spectrum – whatever that is.
Back in the 90s there was no shortage of teen dramas featuring pretty white folks with problems. Hell, Fox owned the market on that genre for years. Even now, with the advent of reboots, some shows are coming back to update us on the lives of some of our favorite characters. Tori Spelling announced another Beverly Hills 90210 reboot in the works and now another 90s classic, Party of Five, is getting a reboot as well. However it’s getting a completely different spin in the form of the show now revolving around a family of Mexican Americans.
The lady pond has been refilled! After years of toying with the idea, Showtime announced earlier today that it has greenlighted the revival of The L Word. It’s been AGES since I’ve spent the better part of a Saturday morning hungover in bed wondering if I was more of a Bette or a Shane, and now I’ll get to reboot that ritual along with the series since some of the originals are coming back!
Here is excellent news for all of you nasty true crime freaks that have run out of episodes of Forensic Files and Cold Justice to lull you to sleep night after night. The OG king of the crime shows, Unsolved Mysteries, is getting the reboot treatment. Netflix has announced that it has picked up twelve episodes of the show that made us kids of the 80s and 90s fear windowless vans and invitations to pet strangers’ kittens with the promise of candy. But will it really be Unsolved Mysteries if they can’t bring Robert Stack and his creepy as shit deadpan delivery back from the dead?
Deadline is reporting that it’s once again time to feed a fed horse because there is yet another revival of a once-popular show coming back to television. But this is sort of a Groundhog Day of reboots because you’ve seen this rebooted once before.
