We are living in an age of reboots and the trend isn't disappearing anytime soon.
Thanks to the internet, fans are actively campaigning for their favorite shows to get a second life — and networks are clearly listening. Cartoons and live-action series are being revitalized by the likes of Netflix, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and more, with original cast members stepping back into their iconic roles after a decade or longer. Although the Tales from the Crypt reboot is unfortunately dead as a doornail, there are still plenty of amazing shows on the horizon.
