New reports suggest plans for Ally McBeal’s revival series starring Calista Flockhart are now considering introducing a new young, black main character.
New Reports Point to a Sequel to the ’90s Legal Comedy Drama Ally McBeal is currently in development with plans for a new black female lead. Originally airing on Fox in 1997, the series was created by David E. Kelley and starred Calista Flockhart as a tenured attorney working for the unconventional law firm Cage and Fish. Throughout its five seasons, the show has garnered critical acclaim and won numerous awards, including an Emmy and two Golden Globes. However, the series was eventually canceled in 2002 due to declining viewership. Last year it was reported that a possible Ally McBeal revival series was on the table with Flockhart expected to be approached to reprise the title role.
More recently, however, new reports of Deadline indicate that the show’s plans will take a slightly different approach and focus on a young black lawyer fresh out of law school who joins the current incarnation of Cage and Fish. The character in question is believed to be the daughter of Ally’s roommate Renée Raddick (originally played by Lisa Nicole Carson). Flockhart is still expected to be approached to reprise her original role and serve as executive producer. The show should be written and produced by by Mike Karin Gist for ABC.
This change in direction marks an interesting departure from what the original fans would have hoped it would be. a series revival with Flockhart as leader. In the interest of the show’s longevity, however, perhaps the idea of introducing a new main character would help breathe new life into the show after two decades. With reports indicating that there are still plans to have Flockhart appear in the new series as an ally, there will still be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the nostalgia of the original property. No doubt fans of the original Ally McBeal will be keen to hear more about the show’s plans as they develop.
