Reba McEntire Says She’s All in for ‘Reba’ Reboot … But It Won’t Happen Anytime Soon
Reba McEntire has plenty going on in her career right now: In addition to playing the iconic Col. Sanders for KFC and hosting the 2018 ACM Awards, she's maintaining a residency with Brooks & Dunn at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nev. So it should come as no surprise that while the country star says a reunion episode or rebooted version of her hit TV show Reba would be awesome, it's not going to happen any time soon.
"It won’t happen in the near future. I know that for sure," McEntire tells Billboard in a recent interview. "Maybe in a year that might could be something we could work on."
Although McEntire still sees her former castmates from time to time and is on board for a reunion or reboot, working with her own and her TV family's busy schedules makes things difficult. She says her other Reba co-stars are booked up this year, too -- but she'd like to plan a reunion at some point.
"Hopefully in the next two years, we’ll be able to do something with it," McEntire says. "I would love to get back with them, whether it’s a TV movie or a reboot, whatever, just to get to work with those people would be a dream come true for me."
McEntire played the title role of Reba Hart on Reba from 2001 until 2007.
