    Seriously? The best sci-fi series of the 21st century and you think you can improve on it? So say we all…NO.

    Also, reboots of Saved By The Bell and Punky Brewster are on the horizon.

    reboots of Saved By The Bell

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

    null

    As a proud 90s kid, we have BH90210 and now Saved By the Bell and it is awesome that to see so many of my childhood icons (basically the entire cast of both shows) back 🙂

    the whole thing is embarrassing. The name sucks, first of all. And then all they do is announce reboots. They’re Spidermaning themselves with this BSG reboot when they just finished another reboot a few years ago.

    A Punky Brewster reboot with what I can only assume is a 40 year old Soleil Moon Frye. How’s that gonna work? This is something that I’m 100000% sure NOBODY asked for.

    A Saved by the Bell reboot? Jessie and Slater as teachers I assume. Ridiculous. (This while Gosselaar is in a THIRD blackish show).

    And they’re of course going for an Office reboot. Of course they are.

    And in other unrelated but equally stupid news: Issa Rae is planning a Set it Off remake instead of focusing on her own show which is getting a delayed 4th season. Now we know why, she’s wasting time on something nobody really asked for.

    Jessie is probably the Principal and Slater the P.E. Teacher or the mechanics class teacher (yes that indeed was a class at Bayside High School lol).

    The Saved by the Bell reboot will include just 2 of the original cast: Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez as of now. Plot will be Zach Morris is now governor of California and creates a scandal by closing too many low-income schools. To alleviate the situation, he suggests sending those displaced kids to wealthier schools, including his old alma mater Bayside High. By the time we see them again, AC and Jessie will be parents — though the reporting does not specify if they are still together.

    Punky Brewster: It will feature Soleil Moon Frye returning to the eponymous role, this time as a single mother of three who runs into a young girl who reminds her of herself at the age when the original series took place.

    Also…

    All episodes of The Office as well as all episodes of Parks and Rec move to Peacock in April 2020. Both series previously held Netflix as their streaming home.

    On the drama series side, Peacock is planning Dr. Death, based on the true-crime podcast, starring Jamie Dornan, Alec Baldwin, and Christian Slater; a Brave New World adaptation starring Alden Ehrenreich and Demi Moore; Emmy Rossum’s post-Shameless TV project, a limited series called Angelyne; and One of Us Is Lying.

    For comedy, there’s Rutherford Falls (starring Ed Helms, who develops with Mike Schur and Sierra Teller); Straight Talk from Rashida Jones and Jada Pinkett Smith; a new season of A.P. Bio; and a new movie spinoff for Psych.

    NBC confirmed Peacock’s library will include 30 Rock, Bates Motel, the 2004 BSG, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cheers, Chrisley Knows Best, Covert Affairs, Downton Abbey, Everyone Loves Raymond, Frasier, Friday Night Lights, House, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, King Of Queens, Married…With Children, Monk, Parenthood, Psych, Royal Pains, SNL, Superstore, The Real Housewives, Top Chef, Will & Grace, and a batch of movies.

    Rebooting Battlestar Galactica is disrespectful, ignorant and overall a terrible idea.

    Cheers and Frasier are owned by Paramount so this shouldn’t affect them and Netflix for now.

    Battlestar GOATlactica can’t be improved on. That having been said, even something 75% as good as that show would be great.

    It probably won’t even be 50% as good.

    Sam Esmail, showrunner of Mr. Robot and proposed showrunner of the new BSG series had to take to twitter because there was enormous brushback from Galactica fans:

    “BSG fans, this will NOT be a remake of the amazing series @RonDMoore launched because… why mess with perfection? Instead, we’ll explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar. So say we all!”
