1990s Returning to a Television Near You

The 90’s brought us the biker jacket and accent braids as the in-demand fashion. After a generational hiatus, they are making a comeback for the hip and stylish.

The same is true for some of the decade’s favorite TV shows as several hits are set to return in 2016.

Here is a list of television shows making a comeback that have origins from 1990s television shows.

Coach: The show that won an Emmy in 1992 revisits Coach Hayden Fox (Craig T. Nelson) 18 years after it last was on air. This show finds Fox at an Ivy League school mentoring his son, who’s the school’s football coach. It’s already been green-lighted for a 13-episode run with original director Barry Kemp on board, too. Other cast members will be announced at a later date by NBC.

Fuller House: The Tanners are getting back together! Netflix announced this Full House reboot earlier this year, and several original cast members have already signed on to this project. Fans can expect to see Candace Cameron Bure (D.J.), Andrea Barber (Kimmy), Jodie Sweetin (Stephanie), John Stamos (Jesse), Bob Saget (Danny) and Scott Weinger (Steve).

If you are a fan of Full House, the above picture will ring a bell. This is the scene of the opening jingle with the characters taking a picnic in the park outside their house.

The Magic School Bus 360°: With new CGI animation, the magic school bus is back in action. Set to run for 26 half-hour episodes on Netflix, this educational program originally started airing in 1994 on PBS. Lily Tomlin (Valerie) was a mainstay in the original production, but the cast won’t be announced until late 2015.

The Powerpuff Girls: Sugar, spice and everything nice… Those are the ingredients to a successful run for the series that started in 1998. Now, the series is rebooting with Amanda Leighton, Kristen Li and Natalie Palamides ready to assume the voice roles of Blosson, Bubbles and Buttercup. Returning voices include Tom Kenny (narrator and Mayor), Roger L. Jackson (Mojo Jojo) and Jennifer Hall (Ms. Keane).

Twin Peaks: That’s some damn fine… news! In a limited nine-episode season, Twin Peaks is returning to TV. Kyle MacLachlan (Special Agent Dale Cooper) returns to reprise his role, and David Lynch is directing this new Showtime series.

The X-Files: Mulder and Scully are back! Fox will start airing new episodes of the show early in 2016 starring David Duchovny (Mulder) and Gillian Anderson (Scully) as they reprise roles from for a six-part mini-series. Series regular Mitch Pileggi (Skinner) will also return for this limited run.
