18 TV Shows Predicted To Return Within The Decade

Reviving is now the new normal.


They say goodbyes are never goodbyes, they are just see-you-laters. That's been the case with most TV shows. Within the past few years, revivals have been the newest thing. From the return of "24" and "Prison Break," to sitcoms such as "Will and Grace" and "Roseanne," this just displays that when these beloved shows ended, they only took a break(until "Roseanne" was canceled this past spring after a tweet made by the star of the program herself). This season, there's no slow down for reboots as CBS plans to welcome back "Murphy Brown" and "Magnum PI." Between those two, "Will and Grace, and the short-lived reboot of "Roseanne," here are 19 beloved shows predicted to come back within the decade.

1. Law and Order

It broke a record by becoming the longest-running scripted crime show when it got canceled, but despite numerous reports claiming it won't happen, you never know, it easily can. As its other running show in the franchise, "Law and Order SVU," continues to get older, it can soon be time to say "see you later" to SVU and "welcome back" to the original one.

2. West Wing

Before "Scandal," this was the White House show, many were tuning into each week. It also got households to become more familiar with the name Aaron Sorkin. Since the shows" 2006 conclusion, Sorkin has moved on and created other projects such as "The Newsroom" however, he has discussed a "West Wing" revival. If it does happen, when will it be? We'll just have to wait and see.

3. ER

What was once voted as one of the best drama's of all time that made people such as George Clooney famous, could make a return on the smaller screens. The beloved medical drama was the sit down of its category before other shows in it such as "Greys Anatomy" and "Chicago Med," took over the tubes. There was even a time when both "Grey's" and "ER," were on the same night, giving fans the best of both worlds. While nothing has been definite, there have been mixed reports on a reboot.

4. Scrubs

Thanks to streaming services, like many other sitcoms, people are still tuning into "Scrubs," eight years after it's cancellation. This workplace comedy starring Zach Braff was a hit during it's NBC's Must See TV and Comedy Night Done Right Eras. Although The Peacock Network did not invite JD and his co-workers back for an eighth season, it wasn't long before ABC was calling their names. Despite being picked up by The Alphabet Network, it wasn't long before the plug was pulled a second time. Although it was canceled twice, Zach Braff has admitted he would the series again or even a possible movie.

5. 30 Rock

It drew big ratings for NBC and still makes audiences laugh to this day. Nobody can get enough of Tracy Morgan and his foolish character, who is not much different than the comedian himself. Let's not forget the other characters who serve as the faces of the sitcom and are portrayed by big named stars such as Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, and Jack Mcbrayer. This NBC comedy revolving around employees working inside the world famous building where the network's headquarters stand can be making a comeback real soon. Last spring, Tina Fey confirmed that she is brainstorming ideas for a return.

6. The Office

Like many other sitcoms, "The Office" is still attracting new viewers even five years after it finished. It was last year though when fans got excited again as there were talks about the sitcom returning as early as this fall. Despite that, it looks like we might not see the new and revived version of the series for a while, but it will probably happen.

7. House

Although there haven't been any plans to have Hugh Laurie return to the small screen as everyone's favorite doctor, in a time where many shows are coming back, "House" might soon be one of them.

8. Bones

It might have only ended less than two years ago, but almost four months after the series finale, talks of bringing the beloved crime show back, have been discussed. It's also not a surprise since other beloved Fox favorites such as "Prison Break" and "24," returned within a decade after their first run's concluded.

9. King Of The Hill

Before The Griffin's, Belcher's, and Smith's dominated Sunday evening's, The Simpson's had another family creating laughs with. That was The Hill's. Making its debut on Fox in 1997, This was the second animated series to be created by "Beavis and Butthead" creator Mike Judge. Although the show signed off in 2010, Judge spoke last year about bringing the show back with older versions of the original characters.

10. The Closer

Throughout the years, TNT has experienced many turns in its original prime-time programming. As not many of its shows have lasted more than a season or two, "The Closer" was a big hit for the cable network. Will it make a return and help revamp the cable network's prime time programming? It is possible.

11. Sex and the City

Today, Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte, live on in syndication. Fourteen years and two movies later, it's no surprise, eyes are on one of HBO's best running series for a revival. Recently, the shows creator Darren Star admitted on the 20th anniversary of the show premiere, that he would be down for a return.

12. King of Queens

Viewers got to see a reunion on Kevin James' short-lived sitcom "Kevin Can Wait" between James and Leah Remini. Remini came on board as a main cast member last season, before CBS pulled the plug on it. Can we see these two together during prime time again? After it's unexpected cancellation, maybe it's best to go back to the first stage.

13. Lost

It was more than one of those stranded-on-an-island things. Even to this day, fans still can't get enough of Lost. The suspenseful ABC multigenre series was once voted as one of the best TV shows of all time. From its brilliant writing to great acting, it would be no surprise if ABC rebooted this one soon.

14. Dharma and Greg

Over the years, Chuck Lorre has become a household name, thanks to his CBS comedies. Before "Two and a Half Men," "The Big Bang Theory," "Mike and Molly," "Two Broke Girls," "Mom," and "Young Sheldon," Lorre had another sitcom displaying the themes of everyday people. While the couple has been reunited on other works of Lorre's such as Two and a Half Men, after not finding success with other shows, Jenna Elfman has considered the idea.

15. Surburbatory

Its cancellation was a disappointment for its viewers but as soon as ABC pulled the plug on it in 2014, it didn't take long for one of the show's stars, to speak about it making a comeback. There was even recent discussion about a possible reunion next year.

16. Freaks and Geeks

Known as one of the greatest short-lived series of all time and for its A-list cast members including James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, and Busy Phillips, it might appear as just another high school television series but to fans, it was more. While executive producer, Judd Apatow has admitted that he doesn't want to do a revival, James Franco had other thoughts.

17. Fraiser

Everyone loved him on "Cheers" and he continued to live on after the shows series finale in 1993. This summer, Kelsey Grammer spoke about doing a revival of the beloved spin-off. The original one ran for 11 seasons and ended a couple of weeks after "Friends."

18. Psych

Producers didn't wait to get "Psych" back on the small screen. Although it was only a movie, there has been talk about more than that. People are already talking about another one coming out. Will we see a reboot though? Two movies can lead to one.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance.

A College Girl's Thoughts On The Podcast 'Call Her Daddy'

Alex and Sofia, if you need a third member, I am available.


If you haven't heard of the podcast "Call Her Daddy" you must be living under a rock. So crawl out and let me enlighten you. This podcast is not only life-changing but is building a bridge to mend the confusion and weird small talk between girls and guys. There have always been assumptions that girls who are sexually comfortable with themselves are sluts. You can try to say I'm wrong, but it's there. It's everywhere. Alex and Sofia are changing the way that girls see their sexuality and the way guys view sexually open girls.

I think it is freaking awesome.

I have always been the girl with no filter who says whatever she is thinking, so when I first heard this podcast I felt so at home. I love knowing that there are other girls out there who will say whatever they want and not worry about what other people think. If you aren't really an openly sexual person you can still learn something from this podcast. I think more people should unapologetically be themselves and live life how they want to.

I have felt so empowered since listening to this podcast.

Alex and Sofia are cracking the codes and exposing all the weirdness girls and guys feel about each other. Helping girls know how to respond to texts, how to get the guy you like to notice you, how to be confident in your relationships. It's so uplifting and lighthearted. Believe it or not, these girls actually know what they are talking about. I also love that they both are so confident that they can tell their embarrassing stories. Media today and social influencers would never admit to pooping outside in their yard (Episode 20), but I'm sure they have gross stories. We are human and we can be nasty sometimes. It's OK!!!

You might as well laugh at yourself instead of feeling bad.

On the sexual end of things, I think this podcast is educational while still being funny. When you're in college, you are not going to your mom anymore about boys. Much less asking her for sexual advice. I think Alex and Sofia answer basic questions on how to be safe and how to be great (lol). Even if you aren't sexually active, you can keep their ideas under your belt while you wait for that special someone.

All in all, I am absolutely a #DaddyGang member. I have the merch, I listen to every podcast, I freaking love these girls. We all should live more carefree and not worry so much about what other people think.

Alex and Sofia, hire me.
