lately it seems shows that were once axed or ended seem to be making a comeback/return in some way, shape or form. if its by Netflix or returning to actual TV it's something awesome to see happen, after being many years off the air. original actors returning, not just spinoffs or reboots.

24 - after being axed after 8 seasons, the show is coming back to TV on Fox with a 12 ep limited run.

Arrested Development - returns with Season 4 for US Netflix subscribers, most likely will air on TV here.

Twin Peaks - I have heard from several sites they are bringing it back, seriously.

Dallas - returned as a reboot of sorts with original actors and new ones.

what other shows have done this, what ones did I miss?
and what old shows do you want to see return?

some shows got a movie return, but it's not the same.

it has been confirmed by John Stamos himself that Full House is coming back, as Fuller house.

it's a shame it's not coming out this year, the old show finished in 95 and would be a good way to do this reunion.

I love the fact these old shows are coming back, even comedies are having a crack at it. family TV shows are popular these days (Modern Family, The Middle) so why not. even if people haven't seen Full House before a new audience like that can check it out fresh.

if there was any show you would want returned, what would it be? I can't think of one at the moment.

probably one that didn't get a proper finish.

didn't mention the news before but yet another show is coming back for a final 4 episode run on Netflix

Gilmore Girls

we just had X-Files return, Full House has a spin off, Heroes returned (will probably be the last time)

Prison Break is said to return with the original cast. 24 will be having a reboot, without Kiefer though.

love the fact old shows are coming back for a new generation. even Twin Peaks is coming back after 25 years!

interesting that they are getting sitcoms to return, Boy Meets World even got Girl Meets World.

what do you want returned to the small screen for a sequel series?

I want Step By Step and Wonder Years back!

another one we can add to the list, Will and Grace is coming back.

http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2017/01/act ... is-on.html

I bet most actors whose shows finish or get axed can't come back, but never say never.

I haven't seen the show but want to. they will be back for 10 episodes.

here's an idea, lets revive almost every 80s and 90s sitcom... oh, wait :?

Roseanne is coming back on ABC US for 8 episodes in 2018!! it worked for Full House, why not that show?!



and here's a special video for the Will and Grace continuation -



Prison Break has returned, Twin Peaks is returning soon. I often post here but no one seems to comment, what do you think about all these old shows coming back? do you like it, do you hate the idea, should they even bother? I love the idea, as long as the actors haven't aged dramatically since we last saw the actors I'm down with it.

what shows would you have return?
for me, The Wonder Years.

I don't mind some shows returning.

I am looking forward to the Roseanne one, as I was a fan of the show. It will be interesting to see how it returns. As for Will & Grace, I didn't really get into the show, so I am not as fussed about it.

I did watch The X Files 2, and didn't mind it.

And who can remember the almighty Hey Hey it's Saturday comeback? ;P
