Jane Seymour Pitches DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN Reboot: ‘Everyone Is Up For It’

BY MOVIEGUIDE® CONTRIBUTOR

Jane Seymour revealed that she recently pitched a potential revival of DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN, but a network executive passed on the idea.

The actress hopes to maintain the integrity of the beloved series despite a push from the industry to propel the show into this century. 

“We’ve actually got one written, and we’ve got the whole series planned out,” Seymour shared during an exclusive interview with THE MESSENGER. “We just took it to one of the networks, and they said that they weren’t interested in Westerns.”

She finds this fact perplexing, considering the popularity of series like YELLOWSTONE. “I think it’s really crazy,” she revealed. “There seems to be a lot of very successful Westerns, so I didn’t get that at all.” 

Another sticking point of the negotiations came when the unnamed executive suggested a modern-day reboot with a new actress playing the title role, an idea that Seymour does not support.

“It was pitched to me last night, believe it or not, to do DR. QUINN as a contemporary piece. I’m going, ‘Why?’ The whole point of DR. QUINN is that life hasn’t really changed that much from the 1870s to now in some ways,” she continued. “In other ways, in a very big way. But a lot of the same issues, are still issues today, and I think that was what was so magical about it.”

She recalled the original appeal of the CBS show fans loved for six seasons from 1993 to 1998. “There were a lot different elements,” Seymour said, “Also the idea of different kinds of family. If it’s authentic and it deals with the human condition, whatever the genre, then I think it’s very popular.”

Not one be deterred, Seymour took to Instagram to show her support for a reboot, posting a picture from the series, writing, “The holidays are upon us, so I thought I’d share this festive throwback! 😉 Bonus points if you can name the episode! ❤️💚⁣⁣ Have you started your holiday decorating yet? ⁣#bringbackdrquinn.

It’s refreshing for a mainstream Hollywood actress to stay true to the heart of the original series, which holds family values in high regard. Hopefully, the network executives will follow her wisdom.
