In 2017, you never have to say goodbye to your favorite TV shows. Not only can you probably find them streaming somewhere, but there’s also a good chance the original cast will return for an all-new reboot. Here are eight shows that were just too awesome to stay off the air, including Psych which returns in Psych: The Movie in December!
1. Will & Grace
The cast of Will & Grace really thought they were done. Everyone had moved on to fruitful careers of their own, but when they reunited for an election special short, all four and the creators really liked being together again. Now they’re already greenlit for two new seasons of 16 and 12 episodes respectively, so that’s already 28 more Will & Graces, starting Sept. 28!
2. Prison Break
You’d think a show about a prison break would end after, you know, the prison break. But no, they got three more seasons. Season two had them on the lam, season three threw them back in prison, and, by season, four? They were doing covert government missions! Eight years after the made-for-video wrap-up movie Prison Break: The Final Break, original creator Paul Scheuring came up with a new idea to find Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) imprisoned under a new alias. Could his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and the mother of his son, Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) break HIM out?
3. Curb Your Enthusiasm
Larry David only works when Larry David wants to work. Even when Curb Your Enthusiasm aired regularly, it could sometimes be years between seasons. Now that it’s been six years since season eight, season nine really feels like a comeback. Larry will have plenty more curmudgeonly comic foibles with Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman and other Curb favorites returning.
Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) didn’t have just one bad day. He had eight that played out in real time, hour by hour. He even had a ninth -- Live Another Day which only took 12 hours, but with twice as much drama. With Jack Bauer retired, CTU worked with a new hero, Army Ranger Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins). The day may be over for 24: Legacy but they’re still talking about more 24 adventures with new casts.
5. Arrested Development
Fox gave Arrested Development three chances, but by the end here just weren’t enough people watching the Bluth family on TV. Those that were considered the Bluths as close as their own families, in some cases even closer. Netflix noticed and put together a fourth season, and now the Bluths are coming back for a fifth!
Roseanne was a landmark sitcom in the ‘80s and ‘90s. For nine seasons, Roseanne Barr brought her sense of working-class comedy to the family sitcom. The Conners were more like the folks watching at home who punch the clock from nine to five than, say, the well-off cast of Friends. Next year, 21 years after the last episode of Roseanne, the entire cast returns for a new season.
7. Twin Peaks
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Back in 1991, season two of Twin Peaks lost some of the magic, and much of the audience, of its debut. But 25 years later, fulfilling the promise of “See you in 25 years” made Twin Peaks: The Return part of this summer's buzz. We’re still not sure what happened in the end. Guess we’ll have to watch them all over again!
The gang from Psych wasn’t going to let these other shows get back together and have all the fun. It’s only been three years since the final season of Psych but that’s long enough. James Roday, Dulé Hill, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson, and Corbin Bernsen are back in an all new movie written by creator Steve Franks and Roday himself! See it this December on USA!
WATCH: James Roday and Dulé Hill get back into Psych shape!
