Little House, big news!

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Paramount TV Studios is developing a reboot of the beloved Little House on the Prairie TV series! The original TV show aired from 1974-1983 and is still popular with audiences in 30 countries, where reruns continue to air. Just like the original, the new Little House adaptation will be an hour-long drama series that tells the story of Laura Ingalls, her family, and life in the 1800s.

“Fans are eager to see Little House on the Prairie come back to the screen, and we agree the time is right,” said Trip Friendly, who will serve as an executive producer on the show. His father was Ed Friendly, the original series’ executive producer and owner of the TV and movie rights to Laura Ingalls Wilder’s autobiographical novels.

One of the original castmates has already weighed in on this news and offered to make an appearance. Alison Arngrim (who played one of TV’s original mean girls, Nellie Oleson) said, “I’m just the right age to play Mrs. Oleson. I’m totally there. I have no shame.”

In a world full of reboots, it’s surprising that a widely cherished classic like Little House on the Prairie took so long to get one of its own. It’s still the most-watched TV show on Hallmark Drama, and it’s now streaming on Peacock. With #cottagecore trends taking over social media, it does appear that we’re all ready for a return to simpler times with Ma, Pa, and Half-Pint herself.

Although there has been no timeline released for this project yet, we’re going to go ahead and get really excited about it anyway! 🤩📺🍿

    They need to just leave my childhood alone.

      I agree! I hate all the reboots. They ruin the shows.

    • Deb

      This ^

    • IrishND98

      Agree!

  4. Bianca

    This is one of my favorite shows but I don’t really like the idea of a reboot.

  5. todd

    Horrible idea

  6. Jody Paul

    Great idea, my grandkids need to see so wholesome shows. And maybe learn some history that the Cancel culture has erased

    The original show was ok, but it did not follow the books very well. I hope the new show follows the books more closely. The books were far better than the original show.

    No reboot. Hollywood and their crazy views will destroy something good

    • Candie

      Exactly what i was thinking.

  9. Seana

    They can buy their dresses at Target.

    I loved Little House on the Prairie growing up, but I’m tired of all the remakes. So boring and it seems I spend most of a remade show or movie ruminating about how it’s different from the original instead of getting lost in the story. Seems Hollywood has completely run out of ideas.

  11. Maureen

    I was a big fan but I agree with those who have stated that reboots seem to have ruined the shows.

  12. sharonljallred

    With how terrible the Anne of green gables remake turned out, I dont think this will be good. The good old movies were good because they had good values and morals. Modern media and Hollywood just have to throw their political agenda and lack of values and into everything.

  13. hope-0

    Disappointed in the negativity and complaining here. It was a great show and the new show will be great too. Good for them for providing wholesome programing.

  14. Mary

    I love the original and actually still watch it. I would love to see a reboot and will give it a chance. This is exciting news to me. Looking forward to it.
