[A revival] would be a dream come true. We all had the greatest time on that show … there’s definitely been talk and conversations. I know it’s something the fans would love and we would love.
We all say over and over again that working on that show was probably the best experience we’re ever going to have in our careers, as far as creativity goes. We’re still so proud of the writing and the great characters. It was such a success and all of those things were amazing … Right now, [reboots are] the trend. And I would be thrilled if the trend continued over into 30 Rock.
The spirit of 30 Rock at least lives on in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and there are more immediate revivals on the horizon. Should 30 Rock nonetheless consider a return?
