10 TV show reunions we’d love to see

Oct 1, 2013 at 12:00 a.m. ET

When you become obsessed with a TV show, that family becomes your family. You get caught up in their affairs, gossip and achievements, and genuinely wish for their well-being. These TV shows still have a sweet spot in our hearts, and we totally think they should get back together for at least one more episode.

OK, so it’s not just us. The creators of Seinfeld have been fielding the reunion question since the day after the show left the air. And that’s because the ending was slightly unsatisfying. I mean, did Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer ever get out of jail? And if they did, how did the hardened life in prison change their worldview? Did they straighten out? Probably not, we’re guessing. And that’s a good thing.

Another ‘90s classic makes the list, and for good reason. Friends is one of the most beloved shows of all time, and the actors knew it. They were each making around $1 million per episode toward the end of the series. It’s about time we get to catch up with the crew, who no doubt are enjoying a life full of healthy relationships, babies and more. (Don’t worry, Joey. We’ll forget about your spinoff entirely. Come on back to us!)


Will & Grace

Each Will & Grace cast member found success in his or her own right, so there’s really no need for them to do a reunion — except to appease their fans. One of the first gay-involved comedies on the air, Will & Grace paved the way for other excellent, unconventional shows like Modern Family.


Full House

How rude! Full House still hasn’t made its comeback. The Olsen twins will obviously look a bit different, but Uncle Jesse hasn’t aged a day. (OK, you caught us. This is just another excuse to see John Stamos on screen.)


Married with Children

Maybe the whole show isn’t worth reviving, but cameos on ABC’s Modern Family with Ed O’Neill (formerly Al Bundy) could be epic. Imagine a Peggy-esque character played by Katey Sagal coming into the family’s life!


Dawson’s Creek

Life might have taken this cast to new, exciting and even strange places, but to us they’ll always be coming-of-age teens attempting to find their identities. Except in this reunion episode, they’d finally have it all figured out.

We’re not sure if the "everybody knows your name" attitude has been bred out of society the last couple decades, or if it was never really a thing. But we know the Cheers crew was like family to each other, and they were like family to us. This year should find it in its heart to bring us another Cheers reunion.


The Brady Bunch

Yes, the crew has attempted reunions in the past, but modern times call for modern families. They’re more than grown up enough now to get it together for a real reunion that doesn’t involve cheesy Christmas tunes like they used in the 1988 reunion, "A Very Brady Christmas.” 


Saved by the Bell

Saved by the Bell was never a classically good show to begin with, but there was something about the ragtag team of teens that really cut to the core of '90s kids. Each of the actors pop up from time to time, but we can’t help but see them in their original roles as Zack, Kelly, Slater, Lisa, Jessie and Screech. Many have tried to get the group back together, including a hoax from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim and a reunion campaign by Jimmy Fallon, but no cigar.


Freaks and Geeks

Paul Feig’s throwback show celebrating the quirky kids in school was canceled in 2000, but its stars went on to huge things. The list of comedic actors it bred is insane! Jason Segel, James Franco, Seth Rogen and Martin Starr have all gone to do great things, but this is the show that started it all. Wouldn't it be great to see them all together again?
