Reba McEntire Says the Cast of “Reba” Is Ready for a Reboot: “We’re Anxiously Awaiting Some Feedback”

Reba McEntire is ready to step back into the shoes of Reba Nell Hart, the wisecracking character on her long-running sitcom, Reba.

The sitcom, which starred Reba, Christopher Rich, JoAnna Garcia, Steve Howey and more, aired 127 episode over six seasons from 2001 to 2007 on The WB and The CW.

Like many recently rebooted sitcoms—Roseanne, Will & Grace, One Day at a Time—Reba says the cast of Reba is ready and willing to do a reboot, TV special or movie of the week. Reba shared her thoughts on the subject during a media round-robin interview on Sept. 3.

“We’re all for it,” says Reba. “The problem is the higher uppers, if they’re for it. But we’ve let them know that we’re anxiously awaiting some feedback and letting us know whether or not we can do a reboot, a two hour special, a movie of the week. We don’t care. We just love each other. We’ve got so many more stories that we didn’t get to tell before when they canceled us that we’re just excited to get back together.”
