"The idea of a Galaxy Quest TV series has been around for awhile, and nearly came to fruition a few years ago before Alan Rickman‘s unfortunate passing in 2016. At the time, the movie's screenwriter Robert Gordon was heading up the revival, but THR is reporting that Paul Scheer (The League) will be taking over those duties for this new iteration of the beloved film over.

What exactly the Amazon series will cover is still in question, though. Since production was halted after Rickman's death, it seems like there was some idea to bring back the original cast, including Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl Mitchell and Enrico Colantoni. Rockwell said in 2016 that…"

They could make the TV series about a show, based on a movie, based on making fun of an old show…

They should leave well enough alone.this is a terrible idea.

I really liked the Movie but I agree… it would not transfer well to a TV series.

"They could make the TV series about a show, based on a movie, based on making fun of an old show…" and it will be better than 95% of the shows on TV now!

I guess all the hype over McFarlane's "The Orville" has made this viable again.

Frankly, a space exploration show – funny, pointedly satirical or otherwise – might be a damn good thing right about now. Getting sick of "The Android Housewives of Schenectady", "The Fuhrers Of Flipping" or "Find It, Fix it, Flog It, F$#% It" shows myself.

( Though the Restoration of old machinery programs and "Surrealist Reality Shows" like "Hollywood Darlings" actually amuse me. Yes, I'm a complex entity . . . )

I think Dave and Legends are right. You can take a straight adventure movie and do it on TV every week, but 22 episodes of TV actors growing into the roles they play? Especially when the process was pretty well complete by the end of the movie? No.

I pulled the plug almost 20 years ago and haven't regretted it. When I want TV I play a DVD of something I know didn't end on a cliffhanger.

> but 22 episodes of TV actors growing into the roles they play?

These days that would be closer to 10 episodes.
