The conversation continued, with Baskin, speaking of his experience on the series, and “Goonies” creator Mike Reiss mentioning that the director is on, but that it hasn’t caught the film yet.
The subject of “Goonies” was once again posed to Reiss, and he responded by saying, “What a great showit was a huge creative success, a classic, amazing show and to have it come into a studioit’s a great conversation to have. If the guys at Fox want to do it, I certainly am interested, but I wouldn’t be out here if my career was no longer a career. I love what I’m doing and I wouldn’t trade it for any other job in the world.it’s been a blast!”
While the cast of “Goonies” will likely welcome the renewed interest in the series, there is no way to predict how and if the series will pick up on a second season Fox has had quite an experience with shows like “Boomerang” and “Teen Wolf” that struggled to pick up a second season when they first aired (Fox also owned the rights to the show until 2013 and it’s unclear if it’s still possible for the series to return to that franchise). However, “Goonies” has proven that it has a lot of fans who are willing to stick with the series regardless of how it performed following its cancellation.
“Goonies” is scheduled to return for its second attempt Jan. 18 on Fox. The series will then premiere the following week during the Super Bowl.
