From Mr. Disgusting: You guys have no idea how lucky you are. The technological leap we’ve made over the past 5 years is astounding and has created so many opportunities for beloved fan projects to regain footing. No longer will network television have a stranglehold on deciding the fate of the show if not enough millions of people watch it.

Netflix’s Ted Sarandos spoke with Stuff.tv about the return of “Arrested Development,” and the newly minted “House of Cards.” Within the conversation, they begin tackling the tough questions, what other shows would he resurrect?

They ask him about “Arrested Development” creator Ron Howard circling Stephen King’s defunct The Dark Tower, which garned a shocking response: “I spoke to Ron about it, actually,” said Sarandos. “The last time we talked about it the thing was being kicked about HBO – but it’s no longer there. Once Arrested Development gets through we’ll keep talking about it.

The interviewer digs harder asking about “Twin Peaks,” receiving a bold proclamation of “Absolutely!” while also adding that they could even bring “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” back: “That’s one that’ll come up on everyone’s list. She’s a great character. If it was my property I’d do infrequent movies. There’s not enough kick-ass female characters like that.

What would you like to see back on the small screen (and don’t say “Get a Life”)?

    I LOVE the Dark Tower series, and I’d love to see it adapted (as long as it isn’t some bastardized pile of garbage).
    And if they’re bringing shows back, let’s see FRINGE. I know it came to a “conclusion”, but with the multiverse aspect, it could be easily rebooted.

      I love Fringe with all my heart but it came to its logical conclusion, let it go and don’t let it become a shadow of its former self. 5 seasons was a good run and it went out on a very emotional high. Great final season and a fantastic final episode!

    On one hand, it’s like: “oh, honey, you had me at Twin Peaks” – on the other, tackling such an iconic series sends shivers down every fan’s spine I think. But to finally see The Dark Tower would really be great! As for other shows they could bring back, I’d like to see Pushing Daisies, if for nothing else, then for a proper ending.

      Twin Peaks, set 20 years later as a sequel series, with the Demon inside the agent wreaking havoc, would be absolutely fascinating to see. Personally I cannot *wait* to see what Lynch and co. have in store for us :D

    I’d only want new Buffy episodes if the original cast returned. It would make millions of people happy, I know that much.

    Don’t tease my Buffy heart. If you are willing to do it, DO IT!

      How about a proper end to ANGEL?

  • DetroitFaninVan

    Buffy, 24, Happy Town, or Dead Like Me would be amazing, but I’d be okay with just a Buffy return haha

  • Evil_Flip

    Firefly! duh!

    How about a mulligan on season 6 of LOST?

    Buffy would be great to go on as movies much the way “Star Trek” did, and “The X-Files” tried to. With that being said, TV shows aside for right now; I can’t see why film series can’t take the same route? If not in episodic format, why not do another stand alone “X-Files” film or “Star Trek: TNG”? As for shows, I’d like a revival of “Tales From the Darkside”, “Twin Peaks”, “Don’t Trust the B*tch in Apt. 23″, “Ugly Betty”, “Tales From The Crypt”, “Buffy” (of course, because it’s not like SMG is getting much work these days), “Monsters”, and “Pushing Daisies”.
