“3rd Rock From the Sun” fans were treated to a surprise reunion over the weekend.
John Lithgow (who played Dr. Dick Solomon), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Tommy Solomon), Kristen Johnston (Sally Solomon) and French Stewart (Harry Solomon) sat down for a panel discussion about their favourite moments from the show during their Vulture Festival appearance.
The reunion, held in honour of the show’s 25th anniversary, then saw Wayne Knight (Officer Don) pop up at the back of the room, much to the audience’s delight.
Jane Curtin (Dr. Mary Albright) then joined the group via Zoom, with writer Will Forte also sharing a special video greeting.
Plus, Stewart even brought along his character’s iconic furry coat.
After talking about some of the key moments in the beloved show, the cast were also asked what the Solomons would be like nowadays if the show were to be rebooted.
“Society’s gotten too bizarre,” Knight insisted. “You couldn’t satirize it today.”
“3rd Rock From the Sun” ran from 1996 to 2001 and saw “a group of aliens sent to Earth disguised as a human family to experience and report life on the third planet from the sun.”
