Mayim Bialik Talks Blossom Revival: Were Hoping To Reboot It Not As A Sitcom

Mayim Bialik is talking about reviving Blossom but if it comes back it won’t be the bubbly sitcom that audiences remember.

“I’m happy to tell you that, yes, it’s true. All of the cast and the original creator and producers are on board, and we believe a reboot can and should exist once the strike ends,” Bialik told Vanity Fair in an interview.

Blossom was a sitcom created by Don Reo that aired for five seasons on NBC starting in 1991 and ending in 1995. The series followed the title character living in a male-dominated household led by her single father and two older brothers.

Bialik teased that the reimagination of the show would be much different than the 1990s comedy adding, “We’re hoping to reboot it not as a sitcom, though. We want to bring back these interesting, deep characters—a child of divorce, a recovering drug addict, an alcoholic—to see them in a whole new way.”

The show also starred Joey Lawrence, Michael Stoyanov, Jenna von Oÿ, Davis Lascher, Portia Dawson, Bernard Hughes, Finola Hughes, Courtney Chase and Ted Wass.

Bialik has been trying to get the Blossom reboot to happen for years now and back in 2021 talked about the struggles of garnering interest from networks to make it happen.

“I guess I’m allowed to talk about this now, Don Reo and I do have a limited reboot that we would like to do. We’ve had a lot of trouble getting our network onboard,” Bialik told EW back in 2021.

She continued, “[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.”
