While the term "reboot" is more commonly associated with the movie industry, TV has seen more than its fair share of revivals, remakes, and revamps come and go over the years.
Everything from Twin Peaks, Full House, and Roseanne to DuckTales, Dynasty, and Lost In Space has been revisited or rebooted, and in a world where recognisable IP (no matter how obscure) tends to reign supreme, it's not surprising to learn that some of the biggest networks are currently in the midst of developing their own reboots of pre-existing TV shows.
The good thing about this is that it can introduce younger viewers to a universe or a set of characters they'd never have considered before, driving up the popularity of the original shows when people go back to check them out.
But, the bad thing about this is that the new versions could all suck.
In truth, not all of these eight reboots will get a series order (and some might not even make it to pilot), but they each show promise, and you should definitely keep them on your radar in case they turn out great.
