We’re living in the age of the belated TV show comeback, with the likes of The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Gilmore Girls, Arrested Development, and Full House getting revivals many years after their original runs.
One man is now lobbying to get his 1990s show revisited: Dean Cain, who’s been chatting about Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman, and how he’d like to go back to that world.
“Well, you know what, we ended our show after four seasons in a weird way because we were supposed to do a fifth season,” Cain told 7 News Sydney.
“Teri [Hatcher] got pregnant in between and couldn’t work on that fifth season, so they decided to shut it down. I would have liked to done that fifth season, I think we still need a fifth season, we need something, at least part of a fifth season. So I’m hoping that we get a chance to maybe finish up the series.”
Cain continued: “Maybe it’s six episodes, maybe it’s 10 episodes, maybe it’s a two-hour movie. But I think it would be really interesting to catch up with these two characters 20 years down the line and see what’s happened in their lives. If they have had children or what’s going on with their kids, I think it’s really interesting and I’m certainly willing to.”
Cain and Hatcher have both returned to the DC fold recently, taking guest star roles on The CW’s Supergirl series. Lois & Clark was an ABC show back in the day, though, so it’ll probably be up to that network to decide on a revival.
