It’s always hard when a favorite TV show reaches its end, and we have to settle for endless reruns to relive the magic. Fortunately, we’re sometimes lucky enough to have our favorite shows selected for a reboot. People may complain, but we are here for this TV show reboot trend.
While we’re all about discovering exciting new shows, sometimes you just want to revisit a world you know and love and remember the good times. It’s like a high school reunion, but with a cast of characters you actually like. Here are four of our favorite TV show reboots that have recently been released.
Twin Peaks (Showtime)
David Lynch’s incredibly weird cult favorite recently received the TV show reboot treatment. It’s been almost two decades since the original aired, so the nostalgia factor to heading back into the small, cozy town of Twin Peaks is off the charts. What makes the Twin Peaks TV show reboot so great is it doesn’t just revisit old times, it spins a whole new story, even stranger than the first. If you’re looking for the perfect combination of nostalgia and exciting new storylines, Twin Peaks is a can’t-miss adventure.
Lethal Weapon (FOX)
To be fair, the Lethal Weapon series is a reboot of the 1987 movie of the same name, not a TV show. However, it still makes our list of the best show reboots thanks to the solid chemistry between the two main characters and the non-stop action. The show features the same characters as the original movie, with a new cast. If you’ve been missing the classic buddy cop dramas of the 80s, Lethal Weapon is your new go-to reboot.
Will & Grace (NBC)
Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO)
If you’ve missed cringing while Larry David awkwardly stumbled his way through social interactions, you’re in luck. Following an indefinite hiatus in 2011, HBO recently premiered season nine of fan-favorite Curb Your Enthusiasm. All your favorite characters are back with the improvised lines and sharp humor that made the first eight a hit.
Whether you’re diving into David Lynch’s twisted tale once again or laughing at Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen’s shenanigans, these TV show reboots will the fill the void that the ending of the original TV show left in your heart. Long live the TV show reboot!
