"Northern Exposure" revival in the works at CBS

Recommended Posts

That’s hilarious. I’ve seen columnists over the years joke about a Northern Exposure revival, and it’s actually happening.

 

The problem is, like Murphy Brown and unlike The X-Files, it’s another show that didn’t have a robust life in syndication or streaming after it ended.

Given that Murphy Brown didn't set the world on fire I'm surprised they are going for another revival. This makes me wonder if they may give that show another season (I hope they do). 

 

I really enjoyed the first few years of Northern Exposure, and it gave me a lifelong crush on Rob Morrow, but the show went way too far up its own ass (as many shows did in the '90s) and I also grew to loathe watching the utterly tedious Joel/Maggie relationship.

 

If this is revived I hope they leave Maggie in the past. And Ed.

The show could be a bit too cute/twee definitely, but I wish I could watch with more mature eyes. Hopefully this means the original might find a streaming home.

Oh, hell, why not?

 

While we're at it, let's see whether NBC would be interesting in reviving or rebooting "St. Elsewhere."
