TV Show Revivals Hope To Recapture Fans' Hearts04:58

Netflix is in negotiations to revive "Gilmore Girls," the beloved TV show about three generations of Gilmores. Viewers loved the fast-paced script in the show, which ran for seven seasons - from 2000 to 2007 - on The WB network, now known as The CW network.

“The X-Files,” which stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny as two FBI agents who work on supernatural cases, is also returning to Fox for the first time in 13 years as a six-episode miniseries.

Meanwhile, Netflix is planning a fifth season for “Arrested Development,” which the company revived after Fox canceled the show at the end of its third season.

NPR TV critic Eric Deggans joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to talk about the quality he expects from these revivals and whether quality even matters when fans love them so much.
