    I was just thinking that nowadays they'd probably be pretty specific especially with how nebulous reboot/remake/reimagining/etc are at the best of times.

    Hulu has ordered a How I Met Your Mother sequel series, How I Met Your Father, starring Hilary Duff.

    Hopefully it'll have a more satisfying ending...

    Hasn't Seth MacFarlane been working on a new Flintstones for years? Guess that's not happening.

    I find the concept itself interesting, but I don't think I've ever considered that we needed a sequel series.

    He did start developing one in 2011, but I think it was abandoned by 2013.

    Something called The Game, which aired on The CW and was then saved by BET, is being revived at Paramount+ with some returning characters.

    It was a spinoff of the UPN/CW series Girlfriends.

    If you're desperate to see someone lose his tongue again, there's SPIRAL/SAW, slummed by Chris Rock.

    Henry Cavill has been cast as the lead (no word if it's Connor, Duncan, or someone new) in the new Highlander.

    Still not gonna hold my breath on this one. Other attempts have gotten further and died.

    No offense to Cavill, but I still think whoever suggested Karen Gillan as the lead earlier in the thread was on the money

    I like the idea of Cavill and Gillan as co-stars. Somehow get Christopher Lambert and Adrian Paul in the mix as well in cameo style roles. Colm Meaney in a mentor role. Maybe he trained both of them and they have a conflict and go their separate ways to only be reunited when Coll Meaney is killed in order to avenge his killer. Who should be Denzel Washington.
