With the pandemic having locked people in their homes for months on end, plenty are tapping nostalgia reserves by revisiting classic shows like 'The Office,' 'The Sopranos' and 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.'
HBO's 'Entourage' is another beloved series that has surely been attracting some extra eyes, and these fans will be pleased to learn that a reboot could be in the works soon, according to Kevin Dillon aka Johnny Drama.
During a chat with ComingSoon, Dillon hinted that 'Entourage' creator Doug Ellin seems to be coming around on the long-discussed idea of getting the gang back together on set for more fun and foolishness.
"[Doug] and I are actually going to record the next episode of our podcast, Victory the Podcast, together after [this interview] with Kevin Connolly," Dillon said. "I’ve been working on Doug for a long time and finally, he said, 'I would maybe consider a reboot of Entourage.' Wouldn’t that be cool? All the actors want to do it as well."
It's been more than 16 years since the fantastical Hollywood sitcom executive produced by Mark Wahlberg premiered on HBO, running for eight seasons and, later, being adapted for the big screen in 2015.
Prior to the movie's release, Ellin told Vanity Fair he'd do "20" sequels if given the chance, but clearly, his appetite has changed. Underwhelming box office numbers ($49 million worldwide – just $10 million more than the production budget) and mixed reviews from critics are likely to blame.
Still, the boys' chemistry hadn't faded. So if Dillon isn't adopting Drama's tendency to embellish, new episodes of 'Entourage' could very well lie ahead. Victory!
