ALL series that are celebrating their comeback this year

After this chaotic Corona year, we long for the well-known. The series makers have also recognized this and are bringing some new editions of old cult series back onto the screen this year.

The range from Netflix, Amazon Prime and the like is endless. At the end of the day, however, we often catch ourselves switching on "Sex and the City" or even "Inspector Rex" again and again instead of clicking on the new hype series "Lupine". Actually logical: If nobody else is allowed to visit us, we would at least like to have our favorite series characters as guests.

We are not alone in this. Especially in this uncertain time, we long for the familiar. So it is hardly surprising that the classic sitcom "Friends" was sixth among the most popular series on market leader Netflix at the beginning of 2021.

The series makers should have understood that too. 2021 will be the year of reboots and nostalgia. And we're almost a little excited. At least something to look forward to in the coming months.

7 series reboots that we are particularly looking forward to

1. Sex and the City

The "Sex and the City" era was actually over with the second (lousy) film in 2010: Carrie and Big are finally reunited, Charlotte has started a family, Samantha is happier single and Miranda manages the balancing act between family life in Brooklyn and hers Career as a lawyer. Now the friends are making the city unsafe again - albeit without Kim Cattrall alias Samantha.

According to reports, the former colleagues simply come together like "friends" to talk about their time together in front of the camera.

5. Dexter

2013 ran the last of the eight seasons of the crime drama series "Dexter". However, many fans were dissatisfied with the final. They wanted the forensic scientist with a double life to end in a different way. But now there is surprising news: The charismatic serial killer gets a second chance. Dexter Morgan returns as a lumberjack in exile. But he will probably not stay there …

6. Wonderful years

One of the most entertaining family series is also coming back soon: Wonderful Years. The series, which captured the charm of the 1960s, ran on TV from 1988 to 1993. The new edition of the series is about an Afro-American family who lives in the middle of the bourgeois middle class in the city of Montgomery, Alabama. However, the setting in the sixties remains the same.

7. Conan, the barbarian

Deadline reports that Netflix is developing a new Real Estate series based on the Conan character created by writer Robert E. Howard.
