Nelson had a deal to be paid for all 13 episodes, the rest of the cast -- Andrew Ridings, Malcolm Barrett, Morgan Smith, and original series cast member Bill Fagerbakke -- will only be paid for the pilot.

NBC has decided to sack its Coach revival series because of "creative issues," Variety reports. The network had ordered a baker's dozen of episodes, with original lead Craig T. Nelson coming back to star in what was described as more of a sequel than a reboot. The show, slated for a mid-season debut, was supposed to pick up 18 years after Coach had left ABC, with Nelson's character leaving retirement to become the assistant coach of his son's Ivy League team in Pennsylvania. Only a pilot episode had been filmed, but it was reportedly getting mixed internal reviews — those, on top of public skepticism raised by critics earlier at this year's TCA tour. NBC's president Bob Greenblatt notably defended the show, commenting: "It’s a way to do another variation on a family show with, I think, a truly talented star and a great showrunner and a presold title."

Looks like NBC is keeping Coach retired. Numerous news outlets have confirmed that the Peacock’s planned revival of the 1990s comedy series, which starred Craig T. Nelson, has been cancelled. The new series, which was expected to debut at some point at midseason on NBC, would have served as a continuation of the original series, with Nelson’s Hayden Fox being brought out of retirement to be an assistant coach to his now adult son, Tim. In the revival, Tim was starting up a new football team at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania and taking on the role of the team’s head coach. The Coach revival was given a straight-to-series order by NBC back in March, with 13 episode set to be made. However, only a pilot of the series was filmed before the show continued production. Reportedly, disappointed reactions to the pilot, along with creative issues behind-the-scenes of the series, »

The nostalgia train just lost a car. NBC is no longer going forward with its Coach reboot, E! News has confirmed. The reboot would have followed Coach Fox (Craig T. Nelson, reprising his original role) as he came out of retirement to help his son coach a new football team at a school in Pennsylvania. NBC had ordered thirteen episodes of the new series, but only produced a pilot and then decided to scrap the project entirely. According to Deadline, Nelson will still be paid for all thirteen episodes. Coach ran on ABC from 1989 to 1997, and starred Nelson as the coach of a Big Ten football team at Minnesota State University. The series' original writer, Barry Kemp, was »

The “Coach” revival series is, well, not being revived at NBC. Variety has confirmed the comedy is not moving forward at the network with insiders citing creative issues for the network’s change in heart.
The project, which landed a straight-to-series 13-episode order this past March, was set to pick up 18 years after the sitcom went off the air. Original star Craig T. Nelson was cast to reprise his role as Coach Hayden Fox in the sequel series, which was slated for a midseason debut.
Though the mid-production cancellation seems sudden, the series was only garnering mixed reviews internally.
From the time the reboot was announced, critics were quick to question the new “Coach.” At the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour this summer, reporters asked NBC prez Bob Greenblatt about the show’s progress to which he responded, “One man’s practical joke is another man’s hit show.”

“I think it’s one of the tools that we have available to us to try to compel the audience to watch something when we program it, which, of course, is the great challenge we all have now, because you can time-shift and watch shows whenever you want them,” he said. “Our business really depends on people watching in a certain time period. So live can be a real aid to that.”
