As a voracious TV/movie consumer, I am very wary of reboots, sequels and spinoffs. Don’t touch what’s sacred, you know? (I’m lookin’ at you, millennial Daria reboot.) But every once in a while, a reimagining of a classic actually gets it right.

Here's a list of all the upcoming reboots:

  • Dreamy goofball daddy Ryan Reynolds will produce an R-rated comedy film inspired by Home Alone (don’t grab your pitchforks quite yet), about a weed grower who misses his flight for a ski trip, gets high at home to console himself, then gets paranoid that people are trying to break into his house and concocts elaborate traps to stop them. It’s called Stoned Alone. Brava.
  • In other reboot news, a 9 to 5 sequel is in the works
  • Kristen Stewart (and two Who?s) will star in a new Charlie’s Angels flick
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger is filming a sixth Terminator movie
  • It’s looking like Frasier will be revived but All in the Family won’t (Sidebar: What’s up with all the recent Frasier love? Multiple people have recently mentioned to me that they’re giving the show “another” binge, meaning they regularly watch the entire series in full. Why? And what is up with that tossed salad and scrambled eggs? End rant.) 
  • Living Single stars teased a forthcoming project around the show 
  • Roswell will return to the small screen next year as Roswell, New Mexico
  • Magnum, P.I. reboot is in production
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer is getting a sequel series
  • Basically everyone (except Steve Carell) is down for an Office reunion
  • The long awaited Deadwood movie is a officially a go
