A potential 30 Rock revival is building more and more steam. Creator and star Tina Fey is taking the blame for recent rumors, but looking more into a Muppet Babies-style prequel or hot robot-on-robot action. We may need to explain that last one.
NBC’s 30 Rock is the last series to embrace revivals, but the fan-fave meta-comedy may nonetheless get second life. Star Jane Krakowski says 30 Rock revival conversations have at least happened, and could bear fruit before long.
Netflix’s increasingly original content model very nearly cost us streaming access to 30 Rock and more, but fear not, nerds. A new streaming deal with Hulu will bring back, Liz, Jack, Jenna, Tracy and all the rest, along with favorites like Parenthood and more.
NBC didn’t waste time declaring its revived Will & Grace would return for a second season, raising the question of other must-see-TV series next in line. According to NBC brass, they’re next hoping for more 30 Rock and The Office, or perhaps even The West Wing.
A Venn diagram of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and 30 Rock would burst at the middle, though we’ve never necessarily seen much actual crossover. Season 3 of the Netflix comedy might have added another 30 Rock star to its ranks, potentially even as their old character, though the appearance had to be cut for time.
Two seasons in, we’re used to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt playing the celebrity game. Everyone from Lisa Kudrow to Ice-T has put in the odd appearance, and Season 3 will reach 30 Rock-heights of famous faces, according to mutual star Jane Krakowski.
