Craig T. Nelson, Coach


The TV nostalgia party continues, and this time Craig T. Nelson is hosting.

No, NBC isn't reviving Parenthood's Zeek Braverman (despite all of our pleas/tears), but they are reviving another classic Nelson character named Coach Hayden Fox.

That's right, Coach is coming back to TV!

The sitcom originally ran for nine seasons on ABC from 1989 to 1997 and followed the head coach (Nelson) of the fictional Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles as he balanced football and family. This new series will pick up 18 years after the finale when Fox is called out of retirement by his son to be the assistant coach of a brand new team at an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania. 

NBC has ordered 13 episodes for now, which Nelson will executive produce along with the show's original creator, Barry Kemp.

No other characters have been cast and no premiere date has been set, but we've already started sending very strong psychic vibes to both Peter Krause and Dax Shepard for whenever the role of Nelson's son is up for grabs.

How awesome is all this TV revival news? Which show are you most excited to have back in your lives? Let us know in the comments!
