Reba on ‘Reba’ Reboot: ‘All The Actors Are For It 100%’
Sitcom fans have recently been hit with a dose of nostalgia as many shows from the past have returned to the small screen. NBC’s hit Will & Grace made a triumphant return and recently earned Golden Globe nominations for its successes. Roseanne Barr’s show, Roseanne, will return in 2018 with nearly all the original cast returning. But fans have long since wondered… will Reba ever get a reboot?
The concept of revisiting the hilarious comedy hasn’t been lost on country superstar Reba McEntire, who starred in the show bearing her name. In fact, she’s talked about it several times over the past few months, revealing that she’d love to step back into Reba Hart’s shoes.
“There have been some in the past and hopefully some in the future too,” she previously told Entertainment Tonight in August. “We’d love to do it.”
The thought of bringing back the sitcom hasn’t gone away since, as the “Fancy” singer revealed that she has the cast on board for a revival.
“Everybody was wanting to do that. We’d love it. If everybody else would go for it, meaning the heads of the networks and things, all the actors are for it 100%,” she recently told Sounds Like Nashville and other media.
As she waits for the heads of the networks to make a call, Reba admits that she’s been bitten by the acting bug and would love to pursue more roles should she find one.
“A dream role would be ten different kinds because I would like to hit all facets, you know the kooky neighbor down the hall or the heroine in a western,” she said previously. “There’s just so many different types. I love to watch television. I love movies. So acting is something that it entertains me. Television and movies entertain me so I love to be entertained but I also love to entertain people.” Reba ran from 2001 until 2007 on the WB and CW.
