A big trend in television right now is to revive popular shows from the past. Coming soon to Netflix is a new version of Full House, and that follows on previous revivals of shows such as Mr. Show with Bob and David and Arrested Development. The Fox TV network is reviving the X-Files this coming January, after having already brought back the show 24. And this fall, NBC revived the show Heroes after it was canceled back in 2010. There’s also a new Muppet Show on the air now. Yes, it appears that what’s old is new again in the world of television. And with this trend growing, we here at Goliath take a look at 10 TV other shows we think deserve to be revived or rebooted.
The HBO Western Deadwood only ran for three seasons spanning 36 episodes between 2004 and 2006. And while it was a critical darling and won awards for actor Ian McShane, who played the foul-mouthed saloon owner Al Swearengen, Deadwood was canceled unceremoniously due to poor ratings. And sadly, the cancellation was sudden and immediate. The show was not given a chance to end properly, resolve its loose threads and give fans a satisfying conclusion. Instead, the show just never came back after the end of the third season. This is the type of show that could be revived and given the conclusion that fans have been calling for over the past decade. With a stellar cast that includes actors Timothy Olyphant, John Hawkes and Brad Dourif, Deadwood is one show that deserves to be brought back to life.http://www.strathclydetelegraph.com/2015/08/summer-binge-watch-deadwood/ Source: Strathclydetelegraph.com
