Kadeem Hardison is trying to reboot A Different World.
With popular 90s series like Full House and The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air getting a reboot, Hardison wants to try his hand at reimagining the classic sitcom.
Hardison, who played Dwayne Wayne on the iconic series said during an interview on the “Allison Interviews” podcast, that he’s been trying to gain the rights to the series, but everyone isn’t here for it.
“We have been trying to get the rights so we can reboot it for about ten or so years and the owners (Carsey-Werner in association with Bill Cosby) aren’t ready,” he said.
“Everybody on the on-camera side is ready. They are thinking, ‘Yeah, they are rebooting everything. We should have some kind of version of it.’ It’s what I think the kids need today. It was good enough then. We won’t be able to catch that lighting in a bottle that we did then, but we definitely can reimagine the show in a way so that it is relevant, and it’s about the kids and school, and we can get that same fire lit under kids to inspire them to be something else.”
A Different World was a spin-off from Bill Cosby’s popular sitcom The Cosby Show. The show aired for seven seasons, from 1987 through 1993, and highlighted the lives and relationships of Black college students – something that had never been done before.
Honestly, if they can do it with Bel Air … why not A Different World. Let us know if you think the show should get a reboot?
