The best part about getting old is the collective feeling of nostalgia we all experience as we think back on the past. Sure, everything from the early 2000s was fine at the time, but compared to now, those were the “golden days” that we all look back on fondly. We all think so highly of the TV shows we used to watch as kids and teens because of how easy our lives seemed at the time. All we did was go to school, come home, watch Even Stevens, eat Bagel Bites, then head to sleep. It was a much simpler time, IMO, so it makes sense that we all yearn for the simplicity of our childhoods, and the ridiculousness of the old TV shows we used to watch.
The good news is that, sometimes, television executives listen to our pleas and decide to bring our favorite shows back. Not every show should come back, obviously, since there are some things that should stay in the past (like JONAS LA, but I won’t get into that). And some came back as proof that sometimes it should never happen – I’m looking at you, Fuller House. But, there are some shows that ended too soon, or left us with questions that we still want answered, or stories we want to see play out. Luckily, we get to see these some shows revived in the near future. Check out a few of your fave TV shows you used to love that are coming back to TV soon.
That's So RavenI know we would ALL love an early 2000's Disney Channel revival, you know, with Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana, so this is a good start. Everyone's favorite teen psychic Raven Baxter is coming back to TV as an adult in Raven's House, which is supposed to air in July on Disney Channel. I wonder if they will address the whole "Cory moving to the White House" situation or not.
The Magic School BusYES your favorite quirky teacher Mrs. Frizzle is coming back to your TV or, more specifically, your Netflix. The cartoon show about, uh, you guessed it, a magic school bus that can go anywhere, is supposed to come out this year, but we aren't sure when yet.
Mickey Mouse ClubhouseThe TV show that featured a tiny Ryan Gosling is supposedly in the works at Disney channel. The variety show ran for 7 seasons and featured every '90s teen star you can think of: Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera, just to name a few. Supposedly, the new show will be a Facebook exclusive, but we don't know when it will hit our newfeeds.
My Super Sweet 16Remember the ICONIC tv show about rich teens getting cars for their 16th birthday? It's back. I, personally, could never watch the show because it gave me false expectations that I could get people like Ryan Cabrera to perform at my birthday party. But, if you don't get jealous easily and want to watch some girls live out their dream birthday parties, you can watch the revival on MTV on May 14th.
CharmedThis revival is still in its early stages, it will, supposedly, take place BEFORE the Charmed ones became witches, and focus on their mother growing up in the '70s as a witch. Sounds like a retro Sabrina The Teenage Witch situation, which could be cool. There is no word yet on when this show will air.
Twin PeaksYou might not have been into this show back when it first aired, since it was in 1999 and most of us were just mini humans at that point, but Twin Peaks is coming back with the original cast, and some more familiar faces (Amanda Seyfried! Sky Ferreira! Michael Cera!). The details are very hush-hush, but we know that it takes place 25 years after the original show, which followed the murder of the popular teen queen Laura Palmer. The revival airs on Showtime on May 19th.
American IdolEven though it feels like American Idol JUST ended, it's already coming back. The singing show that launched the careers of Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, just to name a few, will head back to the small screen in fall 2017.
