With the success of television reboots like Will & Grace and the rise and fall of ABC’s Roseanne, TV reboots have been all the rage in the entertainment industry. It doesn’t look like these reboots are slowing down anytime soon. The CW has given the green light to a new version of Charmed, Netflix is resurrecting Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and putting a darker spin on it, and it looks like Joss Whedon is even hinting at Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s return.
While we’re sure some of these reboots and revivals will be better than others, we’d like to make our own suggestions for some shows that will surely be successful if they were revived in the next few years. These 15 TV shows need to be revamped ASAP.
1. Tru Calling
First and foremost can we say that Hollywood needs to start treating Eliza Dushku better? When Tru Calling debuted in 2003, it was epic. The series followed Dushku as Tru Davies, a medical student who discovers that she has the power to go back in time and relive a day to prevent people from dying. A supernatural show with a woman at the center is always a win in our opinion.
Tru Calling was terrific because it has the courage (pre-Game of Thrones) to kill off one of its main characters, Matt Bomer’s Luc Johnston. We bet you forgot Zach Galifianakis was also on the series. Even if the original cast didn’t return, not revamping Tru Calling for a new generation would be a massive mistake.
