'Pee-Wee's Playhouse' Reboot? Paul Reubens Says Pee-Wee's Returning To TV In 2014
Get ready to reacquaint yourselves with Chairry, Pterri and Pee-wee Herman himself, children of the '80s!
Paul Reubens, who played the titular star of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" in the latter half of the 1980s,
opened up about a revival of the hit children's series in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times
The actor, who's now 60, told the LA Times that there's a new Pee-wee TV show on tap, "
potentially though not necessarily an update on 'Pee-wee’s Playhouse
,'" according to the paper. Reubens wouldn't provide details about the new Pee-wee program, but said an announcement is “imminent” about the show, which will air in 2014.
“Short of something unforeseen like the studio going out of business, I think it’s very likely both these projects will happen next year,”
Reubens told the LA Times of the show and of the long-awaited follow-up Pee-wee movie
Judd Apatow signed on to produce
three years ago. The film, which now also has a director, will likely shoot next year.
This wouldn't be the first time Reubens revived Pee-wee: In 2010, he brought the original 1980 stage show that was the basis for the outrageous character,
"The Pee-wee Herman Show," to the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York
