Favourite TV shows that are actually reboots
“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” is decidedly not the motto that fuels the Hollywood machine. Recent times have seen overpaid studio executives follow the dollar trail deep into the heart of nostalgia, a place where there’s no such thing as a TV show that can’t be completely—and often unnecessarily—rebooted. As with any creative endeavour, some results have fallen flat while others have inserted fresh updates. Here are 20 popular shows that you may not have even known are new takes on old classics.
Shanann Watts, along with her two daughters, was reported missing in August 2018. Soon after their disappearance, police authorities searched the family home and found key evidence relating to Shanann, who was pregnant with their third child at the time, and her whereabouts. Soon after, her husband Chris was arrested on suspicion of murder.
After interviews and questioning, he later admitted to killing Shanann and their two daughters, four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste, and he was sentenced to five life sentences, with no possibility of parole.
The official synopsis for the documentary reads: "In 2018, 34-year-old Shanann Watts and her two young daughters went missing in Frederick, Colorado. As heartbreaking details emerged, their story made headlines worldwide.
"Told entirely through archival footage that includes social media posts, law enforcement recordings, text messages and never-before-seen home videos, director Jenny Popplewell pieces together an immersive and truthful examination of a police investigation and a disintegrating marriage."
