If Lisa Whelchel has anything to say about it, “The Facts Of Life” could return to the small screen in a big way.
The actress, 56, who starred as Blair Warner on the hit ’80s sitcom, joined Fox News’ “Good Day NY” on Wednesday and teased a possible reboot after more than 30 years since coming off the air.
“They are always talking about it! I don’t know if it’s going to happen,” Whelchel teased to host Rosanna Scotto, adding, “Hopefully eventually.”
And when asked about if her co-stars would be interested in a reboot, Whelchel revealed everyone is interested.
“We all would,” she said. “I think we’re at the age now that we appreciate old friendships!”
This wouldn’t be the first “Facts Of Life” reboot for the cast, in 2001, Blair (Whelchel), Jo (Nancy McKeon), Natalie (Mindy Cohn) and Tootie (Kim Fields) reunited for a TV movie in Peekskill, N.Y., to spend Thanksgiving with Mrs. Garrett (Charlotte Rae).
Whelchel, Fields, Cohn and McKeon also came together for the Lifetime original movie “You Light Up My Christmas”.
“The Facts Of Life” ran for nine seasons from 1979 to 1988.
