Is Yahoo! Going To Revive ENLISTED?

Is Yahoo! Going To Revive ENLISTED?

When it comes to freshman comedy offerings from last season, it’s hard to argue that Fox didn’t have some of the top programs with the likes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Enlisted and Surviving Jack. Sadly, however, only Brooklyn Nine-Nine survived the renewal slate after landing itself a Golden Globe for best comedy. For months since, things have been bleak for Enlisted and Surviving Jack. And while that remains true for the latter, it seems things may be turning around for the military-based sitcom.

Thing got interesting following the shocking revival of Community by Yahoo! Screen. Once that happened, many began wondering what other shows the new digital player could revive, and immediately, Enlisted fans began an aggressive campaign to make Yahoo! aware of their passion for the series. Today, it seems the campaign worked because, according to a report from Deadline, preliminary talks are now underway between the network and producing studio 20th Century Fox TV for a second season.

As the talks are only preliminary, we should caution that it could lead to nothing (many will recall Netflix went through a series of “preliminary” talks for series like Jericho, Terra Nova and The River that never ended up turning into anything real), but it is a good sign that talks are happening at all. It means the beloved series might not be as dead as everyone though, and that’s great because it’s a fantastic series you all need to be checking out.

Would you like to see another season of Enlisted? What other series deserves another shot in the digital realm? Let us know in the comments below.

    really enjoyed Enlisted..hope Yahoo saves it

    Sweet!  If Enlisted gets saved by Yahoo!, I’ll go back and watch the rest.  I enjoyed it, but I also got inevitable-cancellation sadness from knowing it premiered on Friday.  No sitcom can survive premiering on Friday.

    Other series that deserves saving?  Definitely Undateable.  So many laughs from so much talent!  In addition to Yahoo!, Undateable could also do well on Comedy Central due to all the stand-up comic involvement.

    Maybe they will bring back revolution

    Fingers crossed!!! I love Enlisted.  I also love Surviving Jack!!! I hope someone gives that show a second go around too… 

  7. It’s not a standout comedy but it’s definitely unique and has some great actors that surprisingly are getting decent development from episode to episode considering it’s a comedy. Definitely deserves a second shot.. there are a million cop/crime shows on, why aren’t there any military shows??

    I would really like to see Enlisted return!  Was really enjoying the characters. 
    If we could add another show onto Yahoo’s list, would really like to see Pushing Daisies brought back!

    Don’t tease!  Dammit!  I hate news like this.  I prefer “Awesome show has been renewed” coming out of nowhere.

    Please god no. Show was not funny or good. Wait a year & bring back Happy Endings. Thats the only show that needs to come back.
