Heroes. Twin Peaks. The X-Files.
All three of the aforementioned shows have maintained huge followings over the years, and all three have recently been brought back (with Heroes Reborn already having hit the airwaves, while The X-Files and Twin Peaks will return next year). This follows the earlier return of Keifer Sutherland’s 24.
In a trend that apparently follows the mantra “everything old is new again” broadcast networks have reached back to the past to attract viewers, who have of late been getting their television fill from cable channels more than ever before.
