With rumbling rumors running rampant about a reboot of the NBC comedy series 30 Rock, creator Tina Fey is clarifying whether it’s really happening.
New 30 Rock? Yes please!
One of the most acclaimed sitcoms from the new millennium is certainly Tina Fey’s 30 Rock. Running for seven seasons from 2005 to 2013, the show is based on Fey’s real-life experiences as a writer on Saturday Night Live. Starring Fey along with a strong ensemble cast including Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, and more, the series is still deeply missed by its fans.
Recently, rumors have been circulating that a revival of the show could be in the works. It’s getting so much attention that even Fey herself was asked about it on her Friday night appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Unfortunately, Fey reveals that nothing is officially in the works, and that she’s partially responsible for getting the rumors started.
Apparently, Fey was asked about the potential of a reboot when she was on the red carpet. Describing herself to Jimmy Fallon as “thirsty for internet attention,” Fey responded with a vague, “Maybe.” Ever since, fans and journalists have been digging for more dirt on the revival, but nothing has gotten farther than this simple comment from Fey.
However, Fey admits she is open to the idea, but it couldn’t be just an ordinary reboot, as that would be too easy. So should it be a sequel like Muppet Babies, or should it be set in a dystopian future with sex robots? Who knows, but you can watch Fey explain it in the video below.
Will 30 Rock every come back to NBC? Time will have to tell on that one. But Fallon can be found on the network every single weeknight! Be sure to tune in when The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST.
