The Avengers aired on British television back in the 1960s. The series was on the air for six seasons before it was cancelled. One of the stars of the series, Diana Rigg, wants the networks to leave The Avengers alone.
With so many remakes and reboots in the works, it is tempting for networks to revisit old series from the past that did really well. The Avengers is one of those series.
Bryan Fuller has already called The Avengers his dream project, and he would want Eddie Izzard to play John Steed. Fuller just ended his time with Hannibal, which was cancelled by NBC after three seasons.
Digital Spy shared Rigg’s comments about a potential reboot.
“I think the message is over and done with, and it’s move-on time, don’t you think?”
Would you want a reboot of The Avengers? Would you watch? Do you think Rigg’s comment can be applied to other planned revivals in the works? Tell us what you think.
