The Muppet Show
Untitled Disney Streaming Service
The new streaming service—which some say will give Netflix a run for their money—is giving Jim Hensons' Muppets
the reboot treatment. No word yet on whether it will be based on the original Muppet Show
or other recent revivals.
This reboot follows the Muppets as babies, and is based on the original kids series which aired from 1984-1991.
Conan the Barbarian
People behind The Handmaid's Tale
and Game of Thrones
are working on the series which will take direct inspiration from the Arnold Schwarzenegger adventure fantasy film.
James Ellroy's novel was first adapted into a 1997 movie starring Kim Basinger and Kevin Spacey. The TV version is said to have a modern tone, though it will still follow homicide detectives pursuing a serial killer in glamorous 1950s Hollywood.
Gone Baby Gone
Based on the same story that inspired the Oscar nominated film, Gone Baby Gone
centers on the disappearance of a little girl in Boston, and the investigation surrounding her.
Twentieth Century Fox
The reboot will still be based off of the Roswell High
sci-fi books, but will have an immigration twist.

The show will see the return of Candice Bergen as the title character.
Mowry sisters, Tia and Tamera plan to return as well as Jackée Harry.

Party of Five
Originally airing on Fox, the reboot will follow the Buendias children, who have to cope with life after their parents' deportation.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Undoubtedly lighthearted, the original series will supposedly be nothing like the Netflix reboot, which will take a darker path and star Mad Men
actress Kiernan Shipka.
Originally a movie, the reboot of Mighty Ducks
already has actors from the original asking for roles.
Although the reboot won't include the original cast reprising their roles, it was revealed that the four main characters will be played by three men and one woman, compared to the original's male-dominated group.

Lost in Space
Premiering in spring 2018, the reboot of the '60s family sci-fi show will definitely have new and improved special effects.
TLC's former home makeover favorite is returning with the entire cast of designers and carpenters, as well as original host Paige Davis.

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
Following a similar format as the original show, this reboot (with its title shortened to Queer Eye

Premiering March 11, the Fox singing competition is getting an ABC makeover with Katy Perry, Lionle Richie, and Luke Bryan as judges, although Ryan Seacrest will continue his original hosting duties.
