Actress Kim Fields has confirmed that a Living Single reboot is a real possibility, but it remains in limbo because of conflicting schedules. During a recent interview with Shadow & Act, Fields discussed the matter directly.
“[Series creator Yvette Lee Bowser] created…lightning in a bottle,” she said.
“So for this next go-round, we want to make sure we are true to the characters, true to where they would be…we have to be true to what you expect from the brand of Living Single,” she added.
In addition, Fields discussed the fear that many have when something is reintroduced to a new audience. She noted that she hopes that they will maintain the integrity of the original if and when a reboot comes to life.
“First of all, you can’t just mess around and just start rebooting something, you know especially if that something was so amazing and iconic and a gamechanger the first go-round,” Fields said.
Living Single is the latest of many shows and films to receive a reboot. Coming To America, Bad Boys, Candyman, Punk’d and New Jack City have earned reboots or are in the process of being rebooted.
There is no word on when a reboot of Living Single would air.
