Could Blossom Actually Get A TV Revival? Here's What Joey Lawrence Says

Joey Russo Joey Lawrence Blossom NBC

In the age of television revivals, one can never know what classic television series might be headed back to television. Fuller House, Roseanne, The Twilight Zone, and now Blossom? Apparently, Blossom could actually get a TV revival according to actor Joey Lawrence, who said serious talks have gone down with both former co-star Mayim Bialik and creator Don Reo about bringing the series back:

There has been serious talk about it, believe it or not. Mayim and I have both said we'd be into it. We've talked to Don Reo about it, who created it. If there's a way in, then I think we're all down for it, which is why we did the photo shoot.

As for what his character Joey Russo would be up to in a Blossom revival, Joey Lawrence reminds everyone that at the end of the series Joey went on to play professional baseball. Lawrence feels a revival would pick up with Joey out of the MLB after a long and successful career, and a less than successful love life considering how many dates the character was going on in the original series. Lawrence tells Steve Harvey that he thinks Joey Russo would return home for the first time in a long time and wonder what he's going to do with the rest of his life after baseball. Lawrence adds that Joey Russo was never the brightest crayon in the box, so that next step would likely be a little harder for him to figure out.

It sounds like Joey Lawrence has given the Blossom revival a lot of thought, and he claims co-star Mayim Bialik has done the same. Lawrence brings up the caveat of the whole thing happening on "If there's a way in," and it would seem the largest obstacle would be what Mayim Bialik has time for in her schedule. Bialik has tackled some projects since she first joined the cast of The Big Bang Theory, but nothing so big as a television revival that could require a multi-episode commitment. With her character firmly implanted in the story and The Big Bang Theory not set to conclude anytime soon, fans of Blossom might be waiting a long time before this project can finally happen.

Until the details of a revival get worked out, fans of Blossom can stream the show on Hulu.
