Why not? Sure it’s only been, what, a year since the show went off the air? Okay, it’s been six years, actually, but you get the point. It is far too early to be thinking of doing a reboot, but that does seem to be the way of things nowadays. My peripheral pop culture awareness is, um, aware of several such untimely reboots. I never watched American Idol. Not a single episode. I never would. But I do know that it went off the air and then came back again. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong. The same with that sitcom WILL AND GRACE. Again, never watched an episode, don’t have any desire to ever watch an episode. But it went off the air and then not long afterwards was brought back. Right?
Suits in offices will milk a dead cow as long as the teat they can squeeze hasn’t completely crumbled into dust. It’s just easier to find dead cows than to come up with anything original, and it’s too much effort for them to even look to the people, the creators, who *do* have original ideas to offer. Why take a chance on something that might not sail when you can just try to resurrect something that did, one upon a time, prove seaworthy? It’s all born of laziness. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the guy behind RIVERDALE and THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA, is supposed to be in charge of this reboot, and Alan Ball, who was in charge of the last series, is attached to serve as an executive producer.
