'Northern Exposure' Revival With Rob Morrow in the Works
Morrow's Dr. Joel Fleischman would return to Alaska in a continuation of the
1990s series, which has been discussed for nearly two years.
CBS is developing a reboot of its 1990s dramedy Northern Exposure, with
series star Rob Morrow and creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey attached.
The project would be a continuation of the show, which initially ran from
1990 to 1995 and won seven Emmys, including one for best drama series. It
would have Morrow's Dr. Joel Fleischman returning to Cicely, Alaska, for the
funeral of an old friend and reuniting with some of his former neighbors and
meeting a new set of quirky characters.
Brand is writing the script and will executive produce with Falsey, Morrow
and Ben Silverman. John Corbett, who starred with Morrow on the original, is
Universal Television, which produced the original series, is also behind the
'Northern Exposure' Team Talks Possible Revival: "We Would Love to See It"
Talk of a Northern Exposure reboot has been floating around for a couple of
years. Darren E. Burrows, who played Ed Chigliak on the series, has
tried to crowdfund new episodes. At a reunion panel at the 2017 ATX
Festival, Brand said Morrow had been working to revive the series.
"It sounds like we all want it to happen," castmember Cynthia Geary, who
played Shelly Tambo, said at the time.
The potential Northern Exposure revival joins a host of other reboot/revival
projects in development across the TV landscape, ranging from Designing
Women to Buffy the Vampire Slayer to The Hills. That is in addition to the
myriad reboots already airing, including fellow CBS '90s staple Murphy
Brown, NBC's Will & Grace and Netflix's One Day at a Time, among others.
Northern Exposure's cast also included Barry Corbin, Janine Turner, John
Cullum, Elaine Miles and the late Peg Phillips. Morrow had a reduced role in
the show's final season and departed with eight episodes to go in the run.
Paul Provenza and Teri Polo joined the show as Cicely's new doctor, Phil
Capra, and his wife, Michelle, who worked for the town newspaper.
