What's old is new again—at least when it comes to television. Rebooting TV shows appears to be the trend these days. From Roseanne to Murphy Brown to Last Man Standing, the list of revivals continues to grow. But the reaction to reboots is a mixed bag, leaving some elated to relive the good old days and others lamenting about the lack of creativity and the risk of ruining the original.
We have to know: Which of these TV revivals, whether rumored or confirmed, do you really want to see?
Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jane Seymour was asked whether or not she'd be up for a reboot. "We wish!" . "They have brought back absolutely everything, I have no idea why they wouldn't bring this back … people all over the world, all cultures, love Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman."
The Facts of Life
Leonardo DiCaprio and Jessica Biel are said to be the producers .
At the , Kelsey Grammer seemed open to reprising his iconic role. "If it's not a great show, and if we don't hear a pitch that hits it out of the park, it probably won't happen."

Thanks to Seth Meyers and NBC, the Munster family of the '60s is reportedly getting a remake, this time set in "hipster Brooklyn."
Country music superstar Reba McEntire hinted at a possible reboot of her synonymous show this spring, but sadly, as she later told , "It won't happen in the near future ... Hopefully in the next two years, we'll be able to do something with it."
This summer, Fran Drescher, star and co-creator of The Nanny, also seemed to drop hints about her '90s show making a comeback.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Yet another version of the '70s animated series-turned-'90s sitcom is on its way to Netflix, with Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka playing lead.
All In The Family
Though the idea of a reboot has been kicked around for years, producer Norman Lear told last month that he had "no intention of doing All In The Family again." However, he has an option deal with Sony Pictures, meaning a reimagining of some kind is not unimaginable.
That same option deal extends to Lear's spin-off show, The Jeffersons (as well as Good Times, Maude, and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman). Could George and Louise be movin' on up (movin' on up) to the 21st Century?
Party of Five
The original creators of the series are a pilot for Freeform. But this time, instead of a car crash, it will be deportation that separates the siblings from their parents. Neve Campbell has said she'd , so perhaps the others (like Hallmark star Lacey Chabert) would too.
