It's Hulu's newest comedy sitcom with a title that says it all. The new comedy show Reboot perfectly depicts what happens when TV producers decide to bring back what used to be the most popular show! Featuring the same cast members, producers put the characters to the test to see if they can bring the same kind of funny. Let's see what's in store for us.
The "fan-favorite sitcom" is officially making a comeback to Hulu. When the fictional show addresses reality, it's almost as if we are watching a case of The Truman Show! It is the work of Modern Family's co-creator, Steven Levitan, and if the new series is half as funny as the trailer, we're in for quite the comedy treat. It all starts in the boardroom, where we watch producers of Hulu begin their search for "breakthrough shows." As seen in Fuller House and How I Met Your Father, we are exposed to what happens behind the scenes of that decision. In this case, Hulu producers bring back the old fictional sitcom Step Right Up, a fun family series about making the right decisions. However, as usual, the reboot is not always like it used to be.
As seen in the trailer, ex-cast mates reunite as a dysfunctional family after 20 years and a whirlwind of past events. While some lost themselves along the way, others took part in different projects which never lived up to their Step Right Up status. Now, they're ready to step up their game, resolve issues and take on a live studio audience in a whole new - stage - light. While the producers hope to "turn over a new leaf," the "out-of-touch creator" hasn't quite adapted to the woke world of television. Similarly, the youngest cast member doesn't know life outside the studio without his stage mom. Still, producers are confident in attracting audiences with familiar faces and old sets with a modernized twist. If the plot isn't amusing enough, Levitan hired a brilliant cast, complimenting each other's humor: Keegan-Michael Key, Judy Greer, Johnny Knoxville, Paul Reiser, Rachel Bloom, Calum Worthy, and Krista Marie Yu.
The first three episodes of the new sitcom are set to premiere on Hulu on September 20th. It is their latest TV drop, and we think it is the perfect addition as we enter winter, ready to join the nightly series binge sessions! The show perfectly represents a backstage look into production, with a humorous take on the challenges and pressures networks have to face. Considering 11 successful seasons of Modern Family, we trust Levitan's instincts. Until then, stay tuned.
