11 TV Revivals No One Knew They Wanted: ‘Sons of Anarchy\' & More

Some TV revivals are met with a wave of excitement — hey there, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life — and some are met with a head tilt and a head scratch.

It’s not like fans are angry to see their old favorites back on their screens, it’s just no one was really begging for new episodes.

Take a look at the gallery above for all the revivals you had absolutely no idea you needed.

If you thought you were done with gritty biker dramas on FX, think again.

Son of Anarchy alum Emilio Rivera rode onto Instagram to tease his involvement in the network’s plan to “roll out” a spin-off titled Mayans MC.

In the original series — which wrapped in 2014 — Emilio played the president of Latino biker gang the Mayans. It’s unclear what the storyline of Mayans will be and whether Emilio will simply executive produce or star.

September’s mini episode was only the beginning for the NBC sitcom.

The network is in talks with cast members Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes for a “limited run” of new episodes, TVLine reports.

Will we tune in? Probably. But we already wish we were talking about Friends instead.

This was an announcement no one saw coming, but here we are. Disney Channel is set to film a spin-off to Raven, which ran from 2003 to 2007.

Things are so serious, Raven-Symoné left The View to star in the series, where she’ll reprise her role as Raven Baxter, who’s now a divorced mom of two.

Yes, one of Raven’s kids will have inherited her psychic abilities.

Apparently Empire doesn’t count as a hip hop reboot of the ‘80s primetime soap.

Instead, The CW is developing an actual revival of Dynasty from Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.

In an effort to be more inclusive, the main character will be a Latina woman.

The Network Formerly Known as ABC Family isn’t going all in on the Greek revival.

Instead Freeform will air a TV movie to celebrate the Kappa and Zeta’s five-year reunion. The cast for Greek: The Reunion is still unknown.

The FOX action series just made its return to TV in 2014 with Live Another Day but it’s time for another try.

24: Legacy will premiere after the Super Bowl in February 2017 with black actor Corey Hawkins in the lead role, instead of Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer.

FOX is really passionate about revivals, guys.

The network will also bring back Prison Break this spring, following its 2009 finale. Former leads Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will both star.

We’re already down for this Netflix revival, since it comes from Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan.

G.L.O.W. will be a scripted comedy following an “out-of-work actress who finds one last attempt to live her dreams in the form of a weekly series about female wrestlers.”

The original series started as a professional women’s wrestling league before it became an unscripted series from 1986 to 1989.

Netflix is also going even further back in TV history to bring us a modernized Lost in Space.

The return of the ‘60s sci-fi favorite will premiere in 2018. At that time we assume Netflix will only stream reboots and Stranger Things.

‘The A-Team’

This revival has been in purgatory for over a year, but we’re not counting it out.

20th Century FOX TV is apparently developing the 1980s action classic, although no one even remembers the 2010 movie reboot starring Bradley Cooper.

We pity the fool.

Gabrielle and Xena shippers, this one is for you.

While the leading ladies romance was subtext back in the day, their sexual tension will simply be text in NBC’s developing reboot.

Also, those bizarrely skimpy outfits will be canned. Rejoice!
