Lovejoy revived? Ian McShane has revealed that he’s been approached to reprise his role as the titular antiques dealer, although he’s not keen on the idea, per The Guardian:
“I have fond memories of it but no wish to do it again. But they keep saying, ‘Would you?’ And I say, ‘Go ahead and write it.’”
However, he does have an idea of how Lovejoy could be rebooted without him:
“You know he had a daughter? Well, you could have 30 minutes of ‘Lovejoy’s coming back’ and then this gorgeous blonde walks through the door. That could work.”
Lovejoy survived 71 episodes across six seasons between 10 January 1986 and 4 December 1994.
Are you a fan of this British comedy-drama? Should it be revived/rebooted with or without McShane?
