’30 Rock’ Reboot? Jane Krakowski Admits There Have Been “Conversations”
30 Rock, the popular NBC comedy that ended back in 2013, might be revisited for new episodes if actress Jane Krakowski‘s comments are anything to go by.
CREW BEHIND 30 ROCK INTERESTED IN A REVIVAL
At the opening night for the Broadway rendition of Tina Fey‘s Mean Girls, Krakowski discussed a potential 30 Rock revival with The Hollywood Reporter. She said such an opportunity “would be a dream come true,” reaffirming how she and her peers had a fantastic time working together. “We all say over and over again that working on that show was probably the best experience we’re ever going to have in our careers, as far as creativity goes,” Krakowski said. “We’re still so proud of the writing and the great characters. It was such a success and all of those things were amazing.”
“I know it’s something the fans would love and we would love,” she noted, mentioning “there’s definitely been talk and conversations” amongst 30 Rock‘s crew about returning to the Emmy-winning comedy. Krakowski, naturally, would be interested in exploring the current standing of her character, the bubbly, attention-craving Jenna Maroney.
Resurrecting old television shows is hardly an uncommon phenomenon these days; ABC’s Roseanne enjoyed a record-breaking season premiere, and NBC’s own Will & Grace revival has likewise proven to be very successful. Bob Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment’s chairman, has expressed interest in relaunching some of the network’s other programs, with The Office being one such example.
As for Krakowski, she’s enjoying her time again collaborating with Fey on the forth season of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. “It’s been so much fun to film this season,” Krakowski said. Her character, Jacqueline Voorhees, “is just living her life this year. She was #fakebusy for 20 years and how she’s #realbusy and thrilled and proud of it.”
