Gilmore Girls fans are ecstatic about the their upcoming return to Stars Hollow, but why stop there? Now that we’re in the era of TV revivals, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino thinks the time could be right to revisit her former ABC Family series, Bunheads.
Only lasting for a scant 18 episodes during the 2012-2013 TV season, Bunheads centered on a Las Vegas showgirl (Sutton Foster) who marries a man on a whim and moves to the sleepy coastal town of Paradise, California where she ends up working alongside her mother-in-law (Gilmore Girls star Kelly Bishop) at a dance school.
While there hasn’t been any chatter about a potential Bunheads revival, Sherman-Palladino recently revealed that she’d reboot the series “in a heartbeat” if someone wanted to do it.
“[Bunheads] didn’t have the time to build a fan base, and I don’t know that it exists anywhere,” Sherman-Palladino told Entertainment Weekly. “Look, in a heartbeat if they wanted to do something like that. Just to sit in a room with Sutton Foster, I’d do in a second.”
One major obstacle standing in the way of a Bunheads return is the fact that new fans would have a difficult time catching up with the series, since it’s not currently streaming on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Instant. But never say never! Both Kelly Bishop and Sutton Foster will appear in the Gilmore Girls revival (the latter playing the lead in a Stars Hollow musical), so anything is possible!
What do you think? Would you be interested in watching a Bunheads reboot?
