Ah, the age-old question: to reboot, or not to reboot? We’ve all seen it time and time again: a beloved show or movie is brought back to life, only to be met with a lukewarm reception from both fans and critics alike. But what about those franchises that have decided to forego the reboot route? What about those brave souls who have decided to leave their beloved characters in the past, rather than attempt to revive them?
This list is dedicated to those brave few who have said no to the reboot, no matter how tempting it may have been. We will explore the reasons why Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Quantum Leap, Friends, Dynasty, Frasier, Only Fools and Horses, Full House, The Office, Cheers, Stargate, The Haunted Mansion, Punk’d, Sex and the City, and Smallville have all decided to stay in the past.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the brave souls who have said no to the reboot!
They kinda just dumped Kim.
Yet another version of ‘The Office’? Apparently not.
Scott Bakula leaps out of the new ‘Quantum Leap.’
Friendship is the greatest treasure, truly.
To be fair, if being in a bad reboot was a black mark, half of Hollywood would be out of work.
Superman’s small-screen reign is over. For now.
‘Stargate’s future’s uncertain, but Emmerich’s still hoping.
'Fullest House': We’ll be there in spirit!
It’s a fool’s errand to try and revive ‘Only Fools and Horses.’
