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.
Everything is getting rebooted these days, whether we like it or not. My gay ass tingled when they said The L Word was coming back, but now my gay ass is giving jazz hands because Bravo is going to revive Queer As Folk. No, that’s not just what Andy Cohen wants to rename Watch What Happens Live. This thing is real! Not that there was anything wrong with the American version, but they’re using the same creator as the U.K. version for the reboot.
I’ve always had this dream of running into the HR department of my nine to five gig, shouting “I Quit!” and then breaking out into the Sister Act 2 version of Oh Happy Day as security escorts me out of the building. Both of the Sister Act movies were my favorites growing up and, since Hollywood loves to murder our childhoods with reboots, you can now add an updated version of Sister Act to the list of things to make your eyes roll. But wait! This time around things will be a bit different.
