Hollywood’s obsession with reviving long-gone TV series is showing no signs of slowing down.

Having said that, we’ve compiled a comprehensive roundup of TV’s revivals and reboots, from American Idol‘s imminent return to NBC’s still-in-development continuation of The Office. Even if you’ve scrolled through the gallery before,

Hulu Tops 17 Million Subscribers for On-Demand, Live TV Plans

Hulu is touting subscriber momentum, revealing that the streaming service ended 2017 with more than 17 million U.S. subscribers for its subscription on-demand and live TV packages.

That’s up 40% over the last year and a half: Hulu last revealed Svod subscriber numbers in May 2016, announcing 12 million customers at the time. Also Tuesday, the company announced that its total audience grew to 54 million total unique viewers, up from 47 million in May 2017 — and said 2017 ad revenue reached $1 billion for the first time in the company’s history (but didn’t provide an indication of how much of an increase that represented).

However, Hulu still trails category leader Netflix by a wide margin. Even with the added skinny bundle TV offering, Hulu is about one-third the size of Netflix in the U.S. Netflix reported 52.8 million domestic streaming subscribers as of the end of Q3 2017.

Hulu orders Animaniacs reboot for 2 seasons

Back in May of last year it was announced that the 90s cartoon series Animaniacs would be getting a reboot, and now comes word that Hulu has decided to bring the show back for not one, but two seasons, teaming up with Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation for the new series.

Animaniacs debuted in 1993 and had a large ensemble cast in its collection of shorts. Aside from the three Warner siblings – Yakko, Wakko and Dot – other famous characters included the Goodfeathers, Slappy Squirrel and, most famous, the laboratory mice Pinky and the Brain. The latter characters became so popular they received two spin-off cartoons of their own as Brain attempted to conquer the world numerous times.

In addition to the two new seasons, Hulu has gained streaming rights to the original series. All 99 episodes of Animaniacs will be made available along with Pinky and the Brain, Pinky, Elmyra and

Steven Spielberg, Warner Bros To Revive ‘Animaniacs’ As Hulu’s First Original Series For Families

The 90s were filled with great animated series, but few of those shows, if any, surpassed Animaniacs. The variety show, which followed the misadventures of siblings Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, ran for five seasons between 1993 and 1998, and it since been fondly remembered for its energetic skits, its devilish nods to adult viewers, and its earworm of a theme song.

Now, Animaniacs is coming back. Its original producers -- Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros -- have reunited for a rebooted version of the show that is slated to premiere on Hulu in 2020.

Hulu to Premiere 2 New Seasons of ‘Animaniacs’; Steven Spielberg Returns as Executive Producer

I loved Animaniacs when I was a kid. The animated series, along with Tiny Toon Adventures, were surprisingly sharp despite being for kids with episodes and sketches parodying decidedly non-kid fare like Citizen Kane and Goodfellas, but still making it accessible and funny. That’s on top of some all-time great work like “Nations of the World”. For those unfamiliar with Animaniacs, it was a series of recurring sketches with the framing device being the Warners—Yakko, Wakko, and Dot—escaping from the Warner Bros. water tower and running amok. The episodes would also feature ongoing shorts like “…
