You name it, they’ll remake it. We’re in the middle of the golden age of TV reboots as networks not only renew shows we loved in the past but reimagine them. From cult dramas like Twin Peaks to fan-favorite sitcoms like Full House, no show is safe from the TV reboot.
However, we can’t help but wonder if all of our favorites are needed once again. If you’re a fan of any current TV reboot, this is the article for you! Here, you’ll find why some were major hits, while others were major disasters.
1. Twin Peaks
In 1990, David Lynch created the TV series Twin Peaks with Mark Frost. It followed Special Agent Dale Cooper during a murder investigation in the sleepy little town of Twin Peaks, Washington. The show was a critic darling and one of the top-rated shows on ABC during its first season. A cult following developed after its second season, since the show was canceled due to poor viewership.
In 2017, Lynch and Frost decided it was time to reboot the show on Showtime as an 18 episode mini-series. The reboot brought back many of the original cast members and, just like the original, was critically acclaimed.
