The ‘Galaxy Quest‘ TV revival is back in development. When we first heard that the beloved sci-fi parody would be getting a revival via Amazon Studios, fans of the original ‘Galaxy Quest‘ (including myself) seemed thrilled to return to the universe. Then, in early 2016, Alan Rickman tragically passed away, completely halting the project for some time.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the series has once again begun development, with Paul Scheer (‘The League‘) set to write a new draft of the film to TV revival. Before Rickman’s unfortunate death, the idea was to bring back most of the original cast, including Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub and Sam Rockwell. Then according to Rockwell, things just fell apart:

“We were ready to sign up, and [then] Alan Rickman passed away and Tim Allen wasn’t available — he ha[d] [Last Man Standing] — and everybody’s schedule was all weird. It was going to shoot, like, right now. And how do you fill that void of Alan Rickman? That’s a hard void to fill.”

Indeed it is. No further details on the project have been revealed, and we’re not even sure if the storyline will feature returning cast members. Stay tuned as we learn more on the ‘Galaxy Quest’ TV revival.
