Reba, Barbra Jean and Brock seem to be mounting a campaign to come back to the small screen.
With sitcoms like Will & Grace, Roseanne and Murphy Brown all getting a second life thanks to present-day reboots, Reba could very well be next. Reba McEntire has previously said she’s up for the possibility, provided she could get everyone on board.
The latest talk of a Reba reboot comes after the Country Music Hall-of-Famer posted a photo with her co-stars Melissa Peterman and Christopher Rich, taken the other day at the Celebrity Fight Night fundraiser Reba hosts every year.
“Now all we need is the rest of the REBA cast!!” the star of the show added, along with the hashtag #reboot.
Rich was the fictional Reba’s ex-husband, while Peterman played his new wife, who became Reba’s comic foil. “Let’s do this!!!!” Melissa commented on Reba’s post.
As far back as November, Reba was entertaining the possibility.
“A Reba reboot? Absolutely we would!” she told reporters at last year’s CMA Country Christmas concert. “Everybody was wanting to do that. We’d love it. If everybody else would go for it, meaning the heads of the networks and things, all the actors are for it, a hundred-percent.”
Reba even believes she knows what her alter ego, Reba Hart, would be up to.
“I think she’d become a travel agent, so she gets to go to all these places to check ’em out, before she has her clients go to ’em,” Reba explained. “Then she goes to this place, and she falls in love and tours the world with him, ’cause he’s real rich and he has a private plane.”
Reba’s hit sitcom ran on the WB from 2001-2006, before moving to the CW for its final season.
