20 TV Shows Predicted To Return Within The Decade

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

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.

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

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.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.
