‘Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik Wants to Create a ‘Blossom’ Revival Series. With the resurgence of revivals and reboots as of late, it comes as no surprise that conversations in Hollywood and beyond seem to be surrounding television shows and films that were hits in their own time. Some studios are using the opportunity to dive deeper into the established characters stories and give us viewers a glimpse of “Where are they now?”
Popular revivals and reboots include: Girl Meets World, Doogie Kealoha, M.D., She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Punky Brewster, Saved by the Bell, and even active production on a highly anticipated Friends revival special! Sitcom star Mayim Bialik (Big Bang Theory, Blossom) has started a fan campaign to bring her hit 90’s series, Blossom, back to television, sharing that she and original series creator Don Reo have been working on a revival for years and now they are ready to pitch their story to studios.
Mayim Bialik shared her thoughts and plans for the revival series with Entertainment Weekly, stating: “It’s been really fascinating. At a certain point, I may just start a grassroots fan campaign to see if we can do it because we absolutely would love people to see where these characters are,” she elaborated. “[Reo] and I talked about it and we kind of decided after literally years of trying to work on this that I would probably just say it out loud. We do have a well-formed idea and we would love someone to let us do it.”
A synopsis for the original series reads: “The series focuses on the life of Blossom Russo (Mayim Bialik), an Italian-American teenager. It began with Blossom’s mother having left the family to pursue her own life and career, and focused on the family’s attempts to adjust. Blossom’s father, Nick, an overprotective, somewhat conservative session musician who was frequently between gigs and tours, was played by Ted Wass. Her older brother Tony (Michael Stoyanov) was a recovering alcoholic and drug addict who eventually became a paramedic. Joey (Joey Lawrence), the middle child (called Donnie in the pilot), was a stereotypical “dumb jock”, known for the drawn-out delivery of his catchphrase “Whoa!” Blossom frequently received advice in fantasy scenes, from celebrities such as Mr. T, Hugh Hefner, Phylicia Rashad, David Spade, ALF, Will Smith, and God (played by Don Novello).”
