– Matlock reboot delayed until 2024-2025 TV season
– CBS postpones the show’s revival amid script and creative team shakeup
– Original Matlock star, Andy Griffith, passed away in 2012
The eagerly awaited reboot of Matlock, originally scheduled for the 2023-2024 television season, has been pushed back by CBS to the 2024-2025 season. The decision comes amid changes in script and creative team, resulting in a delay in the show’s revival.
Matlock, a staple of 1980s and 1990s television, starred Andy Griffith as the titular character, an intelligent and resourceful lawyer. Known for its dramatic courtroom scenes and intricate mysteries, the series ended its original run in 1995. The show maintained a dedicated following even after its end, and a reboot has been anticipated by many fans.
However, the reboot will move forward without the iconic Andy Griffith, who passed away in 2012. His role of Ben Matlock will be reimagined with a new cast member taking over the character. Fans of the series remain eager to see how the show will honor Griffith’s legacy while updating the storylines and characters for the modern era.
As the reboot was initially scheduled to air during the 2023-2024 season, fans must now wait an additional year to see the courtroom drama return to screens. While anticipation is high for Matlock’s comeback, the extra year will hopefully allow the new creative team to refashion the reboot in a way that captures and builds on the original’s unique charm.
