5 Funny TV Shows From The 2000s That Deserve Reboots

5 Funny TV Shows From The 2000s That Deserve Reboots

It seems like every week we hear of an old show or movie getting rebooted or remade (but never both). Everything from MTV’s Sweet Sixteen to the classic film Dirty Dancing to Disney’s That’s So Raven is getting a second wind these days. And while it’s annoying that Hollywood seems to be completely out of original ideas, there are a few funny shows from the 2000s we wouldn’t mind seeing back on the small screen…

 

Jackass

With so many social media influencers willing to do whatever it takes to gain more followers, there’s definitely potential for a fun and fresh take on MTV’s beloved Jackass. And while the original cast’s camaraderie and completely dumbfounding willingness to do anything for a laugh is really what made this show great, surely a second generation of jackasses is out there and ready to endure all the pain and humiliation in the world in order to entertain us once again.

 

Freaks and Geeks

Judd Apatow’s Freaks and Geeks probably didn’t last long because it was ahead of its time, but in this day and age of 13 Reasons Why, and with technology adding a world of complication to being a teenager, the world might just be ready to give this show another shot. Even though the original cast members (including Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Jason Segel) are obviously too old to reprise their roles, it would be an awesome bonus if the reboot was able to snag a few on them for some A-list cameos.

 

Party Down

Like Freaks and Geeks, Party Down probably suffered a case of bad timing when it was airing on Starz. Now that cable networks have the power of social media to promote its shows, surely Party Down would be able to find a larger loyal audience this time around. Of course, re-casting would be a must since the show’s stars, Adam Scott and Lizzie Caplan, are probably a little too busy with their other shows to go back to playing caterers trying to make it big in Hollywood.

 

Extras

Ricky Gervais’ Extras was pure comic genius, and just like the U.S. version of The Office was a smash success when it came out, a U.S. version of Extras could be HUGE. And since the U.K. version of the show was so damn good that it attracted A-list talent like David Bowie, Kate Winslet, and Sir Ian McKellan — who were all willing to play insane versions of themselves — a U.S. version would basically be guaranteed to have dozens of A-list American actors lining up for a chance to make fun of themselves.

 

Drake and Josh

Drake and Josh continue to be icons in the internet world, and every Tumblr user on the planet would be down to see what the shenanigans the brothas would get up to as adults. And although actors Josh Peck and Drake Bell have found some success in the years following the show, they’d be guaranteeing themselves a home run thanks to their loyal fanbase if they ever decided to reprise their most beloved roles. And OH THE MEMES!!
