A Quantum Leap reboot might be cool.

Knight Rider - but I want it in the same era, just better writing, special effects, etc. It’d be cool to have that 80s vibe but with high quality modern production.

Meatballs.

Keep the early 80s time period and make it a series.

One of the more unsatisfying series endings that I can remember.


A black screen telling us he never returned home.


If I remember right they were also building a pretty good villain in an evil leaper.

Rubicon. It only lasted a season, but I liked it. I have a feeling the premise would play better ten years later but the pacing would play worse.

The Starlost.

The premise of the original show was great, but the production was horrible. With better effects and sticking to a story arc, a new version could be brilliant.

The Colony (survival reality one)

IDK why the other day I was also thinking about Mantracker and Les Stroud (survivorman).

That may already be in the works.....

From Sep 2020:

Development on a new Stargate TV series is “progressing”, could resolve franchise cliffhangers

Stargate SG1 comes to Netflix as more information is revealed about a reboot

I liked this show...For some reason reading this answer made me think of MacGyver as well.

Edit...apparently they did reboot MacGyver. And it lasted 4 seasons. Did not know that.

I think the fact that many of these shows already have reboots that are terrible should remind us we should be careful what we wish for. Having said that, I’m cautiously optimistic about the Night Court reboot.

There is some bangin' Synthwave genre music around these days that could really lend well to a reboot of this series to pump it up sound-wise too.

I think with my version of a reboot, take a classic (but possibly cheesy) network show and have HBO or Netflix handle it. Could be more of a mini-series or limited run which would help. (And also have the added benefit of more sex and violence).

I loved tour of duty, it was honestly one of my favorite shows. Well written and acted, and captured a lot of the Vietnam nighmare. It also had a pretty satisfying ending if I recall correctly of two of the characters having returned home and really struggling to adapt to civilian life.

The Simpsons! That was a great show back in the day. They should bring it back.

Friday Night Lights - amazing show and could easily come back with same cast as coaches, or other people of interest in Dillon and new kids on the team.

Pitch - I feel this was cancelled too early, and a little ahead of it's time (2016) in the women's movement. Plus I really like Kylie Bunbury as an actress. Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mark Consuelos were both excellent in it too. Only one season but imdb episode ratings are from 7.8 - 8.3 for every episode.

Why didn't this come to mind for me?

But yes an earth based SG show, not like SGU or Atlantis.

I wonder what those four are up to.
