Rebooting the Reboot

The rebooted KNIGHTRIDER is getting a reboot. Half the cast — Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Yancey Arias and
Bruce Davison — has been let go and the concept is being tweaked to make it closer to the original series. Showunner Gary Scott Thompson says:

 "We're moving away from the
terrorist-of-the-week formula and closer to the original,
making it a show about a man and his car going out and helping
more regular people, everymen."

  1. I’m a little surprised about Bruce Davison since he plays KITT’s inventor (then again, I’ve never seen the original), but I’m not that surprised about the other two. They really didn’t have much to do on the show.
    I was enjoying the current version, so we’ll see how it plays out.

  2. I’m surprised that they’re letting go Davison and yet still want to get back to the feel of the original. Davison made for a suitable replacement for Edward Mulhare as the older mentor.
    But if the rumors are true that The Hoff is coming back, then maybe he’ll take that role….
