TV shows have been part of our lives for as long as many of us can remember. But not all TV shows are created equal; some series have been more successful than others and, of course, some we do miss and others we don't. When one of our favorite long-lost series is rebooted, it's always a nerve-racking wait to see if it does the original show justice or is simply a money-grab. 

'Fawlty Towers' (1975, 1979) is a cult-favorite British sitcom that ran only two seasons but left an enormous legacy behind. Now, over 40 years later, John Cleese, who starred as Basil Fawlty, will be returning to write and star in a revival of the show, alongside his daughter Camilla Cleese. Castle Rock Entertainment announced on February 7 that it had closed a deal with Cleese to bring the series back, BBC reports, and actors Rob and Michelle Reiner are also set to join. The revival will explore how the cynical and sarcastic Basil navigates the modern world as he and his newfound daughter team up to run a boutique hotel. It will be comedy in a whole new climate for Cleese, and anticipation is high to see if he can pull it off.
