NBC rebooting Murder, She Wrote...'cause Ironside worked so well...

NBC To Reboot ‘Murder, She Wrote’ With Octavia Spencer Starring

I guess that NBC will keep rebooting stuff until one of them actually sticks.

NBC had a Rockford Files remake a few years ago with Dermot Mulroney that they didn't pick up.

Considering Castle is basically Murder, He Wrote, I don't see this working so well.

Well I guess "reboot" in this case means younger actress. Spencer is about 15 years younger than Angela Lansbury when she started the original series.

I liked the ironside reboot, but I doubt I'd watch this one.

Umm, did Ironside actually do well, or is that sarcasm? I gave up on it after the first scene of the pilot, which featured the lead character engaging in police brutality. I certainly hope it didn't do well.

NBC canceled it, and pulled it from the schedual. It's done. I was disappointed.

Ironman was DOA, it was a stupid idea for a reboot.

Every reboot NBC has tried hasn't done well, I can't think of any that made it to a second season. At some point they will have to come up with an original idea.

Well, its '79 Buck Rogers, arguably a "reboot" of the novel, comics, and movie serial, lasted two seasons. Its 1967 revival of Dragnet ran four seasons, but that's more a direct sequel than a reboot.

At some point they will have to come up with an original idea.
There's no such thing. Every concept has been done before; originality is in the execution.

Did the reboot Ironside at least have the signature theme music?

Re: NBC rebooting Murder, She Wrote...'cause Ironside worked so well..

NBC failed on Ironside from the beginning by not casting Michael Ironside as Ironside. I'm afraid they're going to go too edgy with Murder, She Wrote by making her a lesbian pop singer or something who writes books and solves crimes.

Let's have NBC reboot HILL STREET BLUES and ST. ELSEWHERE with the surviving original cast members.

Granted, that didn't work at all with their L.A. LAW reunion movie....

The premise for MURDER SHE WROTE stretches credibility to the breaking point, at least for the original series. 22 times each year for 12 years the same woman just happens to be in the vicinity of one murder virtually every seven days. I long ago came to the conclusion that the 264 ''murderers'' were framed and Jessica Fletcher was guilty as hell.

That's not a reboot. That would just be a new show continuing the old one, like the Mission: Impossible revival ultimately ended up being after they originally set it up to be a straight up remake. Like what the Maverick movie may or may not be depending on who you ask.

It might be a reboot stylistically with a fresher or accessible approach. But at least you'd have the original unforgettable characters and performers.

You just ruined the huge plot twist NBC had planned to end the rebooted series!
