The TV revival trend will continue in 2017. Last year, we saw a slew of series come back to life, such as Gilmore Girls, Full House and The X-Files.
We hope this trend continues to prosper because we have a list of series we would like to see come back. It was recently announced the Roseanne will be rebooted on ABC with the original cast, but that’s not all for the 2017 lineup.
Popular series Twin Peaks, Prison Break and Mystery Science Theater 3000 all came back for another season, which have already premiered.
However, there is still more to come in the following months, including a major Disney revival and a comedy that will keep us laughing until 2018.
Read on to find out what other series will be returning this year.
