Who wouldn’t love to have Erica Evans back on screen?
Your favourite TV show has finished, and there’s nothing you can do about it. No matter how many angry Tweets you posted, the show was cancelled before the main story arc concluded. You’re furious, you’re sad, but nothing is going to bring back your (TV) baby. Well, maybe not nothing… Almost every cancellation is immediately followed by a ‘bring it back on Netflix’ petition (and Dredd, always Dredd). Fuelled by the fact that it has happened – look at programs like Gilmore Girls and Arrested Development, brought back from the dead thanks to fan demand. Licensing and logistics might not always be on our side, whether it’s an ageing cast or well guarded license, but we can dream can’t we? And some of these might actually happen (Hannibal increasing seems like a matter of time, for example). So here are our top picks for TV shows that Netflix (or indeed anyone) has to bring back.
The TV show: We’re talking the reboot, not the original one, that would make this a revival of a remake. Semantics, bah! Described as a “reimagining” of the ’80s version, the series follows the experiences of FBI agent Erica (played by Lost’s Elizabeth Mitchell) as she attempts to figure out what a supposedly friendly alien race who call themselves Visitors really want with Earth. Can you see where it’s headed?
Why Netflix needs to bring it back: That ending. Things were left unresolved but with a distinct “everything’s going to hell” type of vibe for Earth. This definitely irked fans who would have enjoyed seeing Erica kick serious extraterrestrial butt.
