Lately, it seems like everything coming out on television is a revival series of something that came before. There's been everything from a return of Roseanne and The Twilight Zone to a new season of Murphy Brown and Veronica Mars, and if you thought this trend was coming to an end, you couldn't be more wrong!
There are tons of revival television series coming out in the next few years, and a lot of them could surprise you—especially if you loved watching television in the 1980s, '90s, and early 2000s. Shows most fans probably considered long gone are coming back, and many of the people involved in the original series are returning to reprise the roles that made them famous.
Revivals have long been a part of movies, but it's only recently that they've managed to come back in a big way on television. Most shows never got an encore, and they concluded without any revisits, but that's how it used to be. These days, nostalgia in television series is all the rage.
There are tons of shows hitting the airwaves and streaming services you probably heard of already, but there's always a few that avoid most people's attention. These twelve revival series are expected to bring back familiar characters, situations, and places in the near future.
