With so many networks jumping on the reboot bandwagon, some of your favorite childhood TV series are on the verge of making a comeback. Here are six kids shows staging a return to the small screen.
The world’s richest kid is coming to Netflix in 2015. The company recently picked up 21 episodes of AwesomenessTV’s live-action comedy version of the comic book character, who was previously the focus of two animated children’s TV series (from 1980 to 1984 and 1996, respectively) and a movie starring Macaulay Culkin. Dark Skies’ Jake Brennan (seen above) will play the titular character in Netflix’s updated take, which will also feature a new twist: Instead of simply being wealthy, Richie will earn his fortune by inventing and selling a cool new green technology. The series will also star Joshua Carlon (Sam & Cat), Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin), Lauren Taylor, Kiff VandenHeuvel (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Brooke Wexler.
