The real reasons these shows aren't returning to TV
It's hard to keep a good show down. Just look at Full House, or Twin Peaks, or The X-Files, all of which have returned to television in recent years. Don't forget about Will & Grace or the Gilmore Girls, either. And that's without even mentioning soft reboots like Dallas, Dynasty, MacGyver, and The Tick, or the return of animated classics like Samurai Jack and Rocko's Modern Life.
Today's airwaves are littered with revivals of TV's past hits, including upcoming projects like Murphy Brown, Charmed, and Magnum P.I. Heck, even the female-led police procedural Cagney & Lacey is getting a second lease on life. So is your favorite series coming back? Don't hold your breath. The following shows might've been fan favorites in past, but the past is where they'll stay. Here's why.
