The West Wing remains on the comeback trail at NBC, according to a RadioTimes report:
In a recent episode of The West Wing Weekly podcast, one of the show’s stars Bradley Whitford asked Sorkin whether he would “consider bringing some characters back” for a reboot.
Sorkin then revealed that NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt had expressed an interest in another series.
“‘I want you to do The West Wing again in some form,’” Sorkin recalled him saying. “‘You can do it for 9 episodes, 13 episodes. You do it with a different cast, the same cast.’”
Sorkin added: “Incredibly, the show has a legacy. The last thing I would want to do is harm that, so if I can come up with an idea that doesn’t feel like A Very Brady Christmas, if I can come up with an idea that works, then yeah.”
