10 TV Show Reboots That We Need To See Happen

One Tree Hill Reunion

One Tree Hill

Everyone is talking about recent television revivals like Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life and Fuller House. The two shows have been doing amazingly well with fans of the original series. It makes sense, they had a huge following when they first aired and it’s totally exciting to see all of your faves again in a new story.

After Netflix revived those cult favorites, we wondered about what other television shows could be rebooted. If they could revive Gilmore Girls, a show that went off the air less than a decade ago, they can definitely bring back some of our more recent TV obsessions. We’d even settle for a special reunion episode!

We’ll be completely glued to our screens if these shows are revived (not that we aren’t obsessed anyway). After all, we can only watch so many re-runs. Attention Netflix, these are the shows that need to be rebooted!

1. One Tree Hill

One Tree Hill Revival

Um, obviously we have to include One Tree Hill on this list. One Tree Hill was everything! Who couldn’t get enough of Naley’s cuteness and Brooke Davis’ hilarity? The show wrapped up pretty recently but we still want to know what’s going on with the whole Tree Hill crew.

2. Dawson’s Creek

Dawson's Creek Revival

Dawson’s Creek was like the original One Tree Hill. With all of the teenage angst and love triangle drama, we were hooked. Between Joey and Dawson and Joey and Pacey, we’re still a little torn. Guess we just need a Dawson’s Creek revival to settle things.

3. Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl Revival

Gossip Girl is another show that didn’t end so long ago but we’d still be down for a revival. After (spoiler alert) Dan was revealed as the titular Gossip Girl, it’d be really interesting to see his dynamic with the rest of the group now. We also selfishly want to see more of Blair and Chuck.

4. Happy Endings

Happy Endings Revival

Happy Endings was gone way too soon. The show only lasted for three seasons and we’re dying to see more from the funniest group of friends that has ever been on TV. We all could use some more LOLs, right?

5. Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Revival

Buffy The Vampire Slayer was one of the coolest and funniest shows on television. The Joss Whedon-created show was (and still is) the epitome of a cult hit. We’d go crazy if we got another story about Buffy Summers and the Scooby Gang.

6. Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty Revival

Ugly Betty is another show that went off the air too soon. The show was quirky and fun and it also gave us a chance to see Vanessa Williams and America Ferrera on our TV screens week after week. Can you imagine a fashion-filled reunion set at Mode? We can, and we think that it needs to happen.

7. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Revival

Will Smith may be a huge star right now, but he’s still The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to us. We’d love to see even a reunion with Smith and all of his cousins at the Bel-Air mansion. Just don’t forget about Geoffrey!

8. Smallville

Smallville Revival

With favorites like The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl dominating The CW, we think that it’s only fitting if Smallville gets a chance to come back and join in on the fun. They may have recast Superman on Supergirl (amongst other superheroic roles), but Tom Welling will always be our TV Superman.

9. Seinfeld

Seinfeld Revival

We have a bit of a reunion thing going on in Curb Your Enthusiasm and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, but neither showcase a true Seinfeld revival. We want to see Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer back in hilarious action. Hopefully, the gang’s out of jail by now.

10. Friends

Friends Revival

This is the reunion that everyone’s really been dying to see. Are Rachel and Ross still together? Has Joey finally settled down? These are questions we need answered! Most of the cast has denied rumors of a reunion or revival at some point or another. But, we’re still holding out hope.
