Right now TV show revivals are all the rage. From Will Grace to The X-Files and even Rosanne later this month, we are getting an influx of old shows returning with new episodes. While it’s not exactly a new thing (remember The Brady Bunch, The Dukes of Hazzard, The Andy Griffith Show, Leave It To Beaver, and many others all returned at some point with the original cast), what is new is that the returning shows have been not only decent quality, but have also been getting pretty good ratings. Here are some cancelled shows we wish would come back.
Seinfeld: While this seemed like a dream that would never come true, Jerry Seinfeld recently stoked the fire by saying “It’s possible” on an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. The series really does need to comeback, even if only for a few episodes, mainly because the final episode was so poor. At thevery least it would be interesting to see where Jerry and the gang are after so many years.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: A return of Buffy could go several ways. Like the X-Files, the series was starting to get stale by the end, but after several years off (wow has it really been 15 years?) the series could have a fresh re-start. Unfortunately since vampires don’t age, it could be hard explaining how Angel and Spike have grown older. Still, there are ways around it, and people would tune in to see everyone in action once again.
Firefly: It’s really hard making a list of this nature, and not putting Firefly on it. After all the series was cancelled before it was really given a chance, and the follow-up movie really didn’t do anything but make us want more. Yes, it’s another Joss Whedon show, but it deserves another go.
Quantum Leap: By the time the fifth season of Quantum Leap hit the air, the stories had really gone downhill. The show had started to sputter along, and it was not surprising when it was cancelled. That being said, fans deserved better than the got for a final episode. With a disappointing ending like that, the show deserves a comeback to clean up the mess they left behind.
Friends: They say it will never happen, and yet, the show is still one of the most popular shows on Netflix, and that’s after the series ended 14 years ago. Getting everyone together seems to be the hardest part, but something can be done to help that can’t it? Of course the ending of the series was perfect, so maybe it’s best not to mess that up.
2018 Junos: Arcade Fire & Gord Downie Win Big, A Barenaked Reunion and Michael Buble Hosts
Last year’s Juno Awards had problems even before it began, when host Michael Buble had to step down as the host after family issues arose, but this year he was front and centre of the show, and even started the night off with some good news. The singer announced early on that he and his wife were expecting their third child. And that wasn’t the end of the positivity showcased throughout the evening.
When Arcade Fire’s Win Butler took the stage to claim the Album of the Year Award for Everything News, he stated “I just hope that we can all rise above negativity in our lives and just do what we believe in. Speak your truth and don’t be afraid to just do whatever the hell you want.”
Gord Downie’s brothers Mike and Patrick continued the inspiring words when they accepted his posthumous Artist of the Year award. “If we’ve learned anything from Gord it was the value of taking care of each other,” Patrick said. “This is Gord’s award. It’s artist of the year, but he was our man of a lifetime. I’d like to believe we’re all better artists and people because of him. We love you Gord and we’re all taking good care of each other.” The love towards Downie was also felt earlier on during a special tribute to the late singer, which was led by Sarah Harmer and Dallas Green, alongside Barenaked Ladies keyboardist Kevin Hearn.
The other big highlight of the evening was of course the induction of the Backnaked Ladies into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. The group reunited with former bandmate Steven Page to accept the award, and even closed out the broadcast with a montage of their hits One Week and If I Had $1,000,000. Page left the group to pursue a solo career back in 2009. Before they could finish their montage though, Jann Arden, Jim Cuddy, The Jerry Cans and the Northern Touch All-Stars joined them sing-along.
The other winners for the evening were: RB/Soul Recording of the Year: Freudian by Daniel Caesar, Breakthrough Artist of the Year: Jessie Reyez, Rap Recording of the Year: Shooters by Tory Lanez and Juno Fan Choice: Shawn Mendes.

Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin And More Set To Return For Once Upon A Time Finale
You have to give it to the Once Upon A Time producers, they tried to continue the popular series after regulars Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin and Emilie de Ravin decided to call it quits after 6 seasons. Unfortunately the ratings continues to fall, and earlier this year ABC decided to pull the plug on it and announced the season finale would also be the series finale. And now it’s been announced that the actors who left the series, are returning for the final episode.
Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis said in a released statement that “Seven years after we set off on this magical journey, we prepare to say goodbye to the cast, crew and writers that made the ‘happily ever after’ that is Once Upon a Time possible. We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to say farewell than by reuniting so many of the characters that our fiercely loyal fans spent years with on their adventures. We hope everyone joins our Once family, old and new, for what we hope will be the sendoff of a lifetime befitting this stellar cast and its incomparable fans.”
Once Upon A Time was rebooted for season 7, with few cast members from the previous seasons returning. One was Lana Parrilla, who plays Regina Mills, and who we interviewed for our October 2017 issue. The season also featured several new characters, including Robin, the daughter of Zelena and Robin Hood, played by Tiera Skovbye. We spoke with Tiera in our current, March issue.
ABC recently announced that the season ending episode would feature several returning stars, including Jared Gilmore (Henry Mills), Bev Elliott (Granny), Lee Arenberg (Grumpy), Tony Amendola (Geppetto), Keegan Connor Tracy (Blue Fairy), JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Ariel), Robbie Kay (Peter Pan), Sean Maguire (Robin Hood), Victoria Smurfit (Cruella de Vil) and Rebecca Mader (Zelena/Wicked Witch). With Morrison (Emma Swan), Dallas (Prince Charming), Goodwin (Snow White) and de Ravin (Belle) returning, the finale should play out the nostalgia factor and draw in fans who had stopped watching. Morrison, Dallas and Goodwin had been with the series since it began, while de Ravin joined part way through season one before becoming a series regular in season 2.
The Once Upon A Time finale will air over the course of two weeks, on Fridays May 11 and May 18, at 8 P.M. The returning actors aren’t expected to appear until the season part.
Indiana Jones 5 Will Start Production In 2019
Even though Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Ready Player One, isn’t set to hit theatres until next week, people have already started talking about the Oscar winning director’s upcoming films; including the fifth film of the long running Indiana Jones franchise.
While making an appearance at the Rakuten Empire Awards in London this weekend, Spielberg not only praised the Time’s Up movement, but he also started discussing the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 film during his acceptance speech for the Legend of Our Lifetime award. “It’s always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK,” he said. “The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers — everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here.”
Originally the fifth movie was due out in 2019, but that was switched to July 10, 2020 last April by Disney. What we know is that Harrison Ford will once again star in the film, but Shia LaBeouf, who was one of the stars of the fourth installment The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, won’t be in it at all. Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will once again produce the film, and David Koepp is currently writing the script. Other than that the film, including the plot and co-stars, is a complete mystery.
Before getting to the unnamed Indiana Jones sequel however, Spielberg is filming West Side Story and The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara first.
