It has to be a question that many families have asked over the Christmas period. Could Only Fools and Horses make a comeback? With the recent 10 minute sketch for Sport relief back in 2014 there was a seed sown in everyone’s minds. But of course without John Sullivan the legendary sitcom writer, it would be an uphill task.
According to a recent article in The Sun, its headline stated “LUVVLY JUBBLY Sir David Jason reveals that he WOULD come back as wheeler dealer Del Boy for one last Only Fools and Horses stint – but there’s one thing missing. The 76-year-old actor feels the show wouldn’t be the same after the death of writer John Sullivan”
Some have wondered whether John Sullivan’s’ sons could provide scripts. They were involved in The Green Green Grass and the Sport Relief sketch in 2014. But sources suggest this isn’t going to happen.
Some have wondered whether it could come back in the USA and be a hit in a similar way to Ricky Gervais’ The Office. But after 2 efforts across the pond, US network ABC passed on the series, titled Kings Of Van Nuys, following a pilot. John Leguizamo had been cast in role of Del Boy with Dustin Ybarra as Rodney and Christopher Lloyd as their ageing grandfather.
So its 2017, and we ask “Could Only Fools come back?”.
What do you think?
