If it seemed as though 2017-2018 was going to bring endless reboots and revivals to television, there are even more in store! The 2017-2018 season saw Roseanne come (and go again), Will & Grace, American Idol, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and so many more make their return to the small-screen and the nostalgia push isn’t over. Once again the upcoming television season is promising more revivals (with the original cast returning) and reboots (a new take on an old show), and there are a lot to keep up with. Here are 16 of the most highly anticipated upcoming TV reboots and revivals for 2018-2019:

18. Frasier (Reboot)

In late July 2018, Kelsey Grammer revealed that he was in talks to bring back the classic ’90s series Frasier. Grammer met with writers and producers about what would be the best way to bring the series back, and it was reported that instead of a revival it would be a reboot that would simply “draw inspiration” from the series which ran for 11 seasons from 1993 to 2004. Before fans start marking their calendars for the show however, nothing is set in stone. “[We] have to make sure it’s going to be a great show,” he told reporters in early August at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour. “If it’s not a great show, and if we don’t hear a pitch that hits it out of the park, it probably won’t happen.”

17. Mad About You (Revival)

April, 2018 brought the news that fans might be seeing Paul Buchman and Jamie Stemple Buchman in a new stage of their life when it was reported that Mad About You might be on its way back. News leaked that Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt had both signed deals to reprise their roles for a revival of the popular series which ran for seven seasons from 1992 to 1999. Initial talks suggested the revival would bring the two stars back as their characters are dealing with empty-nest syndrome after their daughter leaves for college. While this revival is highly anticipated, much like the comeback of Frasier, don’t mark your calendars just yet. Even though it looked like things were well underway for a Mad About You return, in early July, Paul Reiser gave an update saying, “It’s kind of stuck in the business end of it now. Sony is trying to figure out from their end; that’s where I just walk away and go, call me when you figure it out. I don’t know what happens at that level. They make their deals with whoever they make their deals with. So we’ll see if it happens. It may not happen.”
