The pull of nostalgia has begun to dominate both the big and small screen, and there seems to be endless possibilities for reboots and revivals of the most popular series and films from the past. Television has jumped on to the reboot and revival train with Will & Grace, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Hawaii Five-O and so many more. It seems, for the most part, revivals (where the original cast returns with the same premise) have been the most anticipated, but there are quite a few reboots (where there is a difference in material and most often a new cast) also on the way. Check out 15 of the most anticipated upcoming TV reboots and revivals ranked from least to most anticipated:
15. Jersey Shore (Revival)
Like it or not MTV’s Jersey Shore was a pop culture phenomenon during its original six-season run from December 2009 to December 2012. In the years that have passed since, the lives of the stars have changed dramatically, but in late 2017 MTV announced they were reuniting most of the original cast for a revival season. Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will send Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Deena Cortese, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino and Pauly D. DelVecchio to Miami, Florida for one last wild ride together again. The revival will not feature Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and will premiere on Thursday, April 5 on MTV. Although there will be many who tune in for the Jersey Shore reunion/revival, many also wish this is one show that wouldn’t be brought back.
