Nash Bridges is coming back to the small screen with the potential of returning as a series. Don Johnson is returning as the title character, and he revealed more about the revival in an interview that will air on The Talk later this month. The original series aired for five seasons between 1996 and 2001 on CBS. The new series would air on USA Network.
Sharon Osbourne asked the actor if fans would see Cheech Marin appear on the series once again. He teased the actors return with a joke, per Deadline. He said the following:
“Oh yeah. The Cheech will be back. I think in this adaptation of Nash Bridges, he’s going to actually be selling weed. And the cops in San Francisco are actually going to be smoking it.”
He also revealed more about the series’ return. He revealed that the series is returning with a two-hour film at first. The film is being written at the moment, and it could launch a new series. About the future plan, he said, “Good Lord, I don’t know how I feel about that.”
An air date for the Nash Bridges film has not been set. Don Johnson’s interview with The Talk will air on November 26.
