Every time we turn around, there seems to be a new reboot or revival of a beloved television show or movie in the works. We’ve already gotten a reboot for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, iCarly, Pretty Little Liars, The Proud Family, That ‘70s Show and that’s not even half of it. Did we mention there are Working Girl and Party Down revivals coming soon? (Umm, yay?)
With this influx of remakes and spinoffs, it’s come to a point where it’s just becoming too much. So, imagine our excitement when Hulu announced it was coming out with a new comedy series making fun of that very trend.
Created by Steven Levitan (who is the co-creator of the beloved sitcom Modern Family), Reboot revolves around a fictional early 2000s sitcom called Step Right Up getting a modern-day remake.
The revival features the original cast members from the sitcom, including Reed Sterling (Keegan-Michael Key), Clay Barber (Johnny Knoxville), Bree Marie Jensen (Judy Greer) and Zack (Calum Worthy). Sounds ripe for comedy to us. Keep reading for a full review of Reboot.
