You know what they say: What’s old can be new. That certainly seems to be the case on network TV. In recent years, once-beloved series are getting a new life in the form of a reboot. Some shows are completely reimagined with a modern setting and new actors, like Hawaii 5-0 and the now cancelled Charlie’s Angels. Others have been brought back with iconic characters to tell a new round of stories, like the über successful 24: Live Another Day. With all these classic shows hitting the airwaves once more, here are a few we’d like to see get a second chance.
1. Veronica Mars
This teen drama, which starred Frozen’s Kristen Bell as a teenage private eye solving crimes in the fictional Neptune, California, was both fiercely funny and breathtakingly brave. While it was a critical darling that amassed a devoted fan base as fierce as its heroine, it never soared to the top of the Nielsen charts. But the recent spinoff film, Veronica Mars, was an enormous success by industry standards, proving Ms. Mars still has some fight left in her. It would be great to see her taking down a new set of criminals in her post-collegiate career.
