Revivals of Revenge, thirtysomething, and LA Complex are not going to move forward. Plans were announced for a Revenge revival last year. Thirtysomething(else) was also in the works with various casting announcements in recent months.
“There were also plans to turn the spin-off into an anthology series. Rather than focusing one woman’s prolonged quest for revenge like the original series, this new show would have spent one season on each “revengenda” before moving on to a new story and a new mission each year.”
In regards to thirtysomething(else), Variety revealed that the series would have been “pricier side to produce, which may have contributed to ABC cutting them loose.” The original cast of thirtysomething had been on board to appear in the follow-up series.
As for LA Complex, the plans for a series reboot were first announced in October 2018 by The CW and would have revolved around a new group of twenty-somethings living in the same complex. Word of the new version not moving forward comes from Martin Gero, a co-creator of the original series, in an Instagram comment.
What do you think? Did you plan to watch these new versions of past shows? Are you surprised they were not picked up?
