We’re firmly in the age of reboots and remakes right now, and 2020 looks ready to continue that trend. This year will see several childhood favourites heading back to the small screen.
Your mileage may vary on whether or not this is a good thing. There’s that big pull of nostalgia when it comes to seeing some old classics getting remade, especially if the old cast are returning. At the same time though, there’s the feeling that it’s always difficult to improve on the original, or that the past shouldn’t be messed with.
It’s objectively less creative than coming up with a completely new project too, and can suffocate the room for fresh ideas. That said, it’s hard to shake the feeling that we ultimately want more of what we like.
It’s great when projects take risks and offer genuinely new ideas, but reboots are so cozy and inviting. When these twelve drop, there won’t be a shortage of people wanting to wrap themselves up in them.
