Hulu Cancels Meta-Comedy “Reboot” After One Season

Hulu has canceled their comedy series Reboot after one season.

The series, created by Modern Family co-creator Steven Levitan, centered on the streamer's decision to reboot the popular 2000s sitcom Step Right Up. With the original cast returning to set years after saying goodbye, a wealth of issues and unresolved conflict rise to the surface.

Keegan-Michael Key, Johnny Knoxville, Judy Greer, and Calum Worthy starred as Step Right Up returning players. Rachel Bloom served as the millennial writer looking to reboot the fictionalized sitcom, while Paul Reiser was the show's original creator.

Reboot's only season consisted of eight episodes and was well-received by critics upon its launch on September 20, 2022.

After the unexpected cancellation, Levitan attempted to shop the series but couldn't convince a studio to take on the project. So, in the ways of Hollywood, Reboot is officially dead.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
