Amanda Bynes Very Interested in Doing ‘What I Like About You’ Revival
Amanda Bynes might be back on the small screen sooner than later — she says she’s potentially interested in getting back into the TV biz … on her signature sitcom, no less.
The one-time child star — who was recently released from a years-long conservatorship — tells TMZ … yes, she’s “very interested” in a possible revival of her WB series “What I Like About You” — a fan fave that ran for 4 seasons in the early 2000s.
She adds, “I think it’s a great idea to reboot the show,” while hedging a bit — explaining that she hasn’t talked to Leslie Grossman or Jennie Garth about it just yet.
Still, there’s certainly some hope here — AB says, “I miss them and would love to work with them again. I don’t miss acting but I loved this show, so I’d be down to return to acting for this revival. It would be a great experience to continue the show.”
That’s a pretty big deal … especially when you consider Garth herself recently said something to the same effect — namely, expressing interest in getting the gang together again.
She noted in a podcast interview she wasn’t going to count Amanda out — and now she might even wanna pick up the phone if there was any hesitation before … ’cause her old costar sounds like she could easily hop on board for this.
Of course, it’ll take more than just their mutual interest to get a would-be reboot off the ground and on the airwaves — there’s gotta be a studio that wants to produce it.
Nonetheless, seeing how much people are rallying around AB lately — and the cult classic status ‘WILAY’ already has — something tells us these ladies could get meetings quickly.
