Fans of the beloved series “Girlfriends” have long clamored for a revival since its abrupt end in February 2008 without a proper finale. In a recent interview, executive producer Kelsey Grammer was questioned about any updates regarding a potential reboot. This inquiry came amidst the resurgence of his own series, “Frasier,” which made a return nearly three decades after its initial airing.
“I would love to reboot ‘Girlfriends.’ Of course, it would probably be a different kind of show, but we got The Game back on and that was wonderful. I don’t know if Paramount+ is gonna grab another season of that but you never know. I think they should because I know many people who love that show and love those characters and would like to see them continue,” the 68-year-old told Deadline.
“We’ll see what happens. But yeah, I would love to reboot ‘Girlfriends’ and I would love to see Tracee [Ellis Ross] in that role again. She was terrific in that. The show was a wonderful opportunity to see all those young women start out. It’s such a beautiful ensemble effort and I was very proud to be connected to that.”
“Girlfriends” debuted on UPN in 2000 and later transitioned to The CW, its successor network, before concluding in 2008, partly due to the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike and the high production costs.
The series starred Ross alongside Jill Marie Jones, Golden Brooks, Persia White, and Reggie Hayes. The show’s spinoff series, “The Game,” debuted in 2006.
