‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Stars Tease Possible Reboot of 80s TV Series

Will Dukes of Hazzard be the next classic TV series to return for a reboot? The original stars say there is always a chance. 

Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), and John Schneider (Bo Duke) recently reunited for the 2023 Gallatin Comic Con near Nashville, TN. Byron Cherry (Coy Duke), Jeff Altman (Hughie Hogg), and Rick Hurst (Deputy Cletus Hogg) were also in attendance.

The stars met to chat about their time on the show and what they’re up to now. They also teased that a revival could happen in the future. When fans asked about a reboot series or special, Bach offered cryptic hope. 

“As far as a Dukes reunion, anything is possible,” she said. 

John Schnieder Says He and His ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Co-stars ‘Could Not Be Better Friends’

Following the Comin Con panel, Schnieder sat with Fox News Digital and shared why he’s still open to working with his co-stars once more. 

“It was so great reconnecting with my castmates from The Dukes of Hazzard,” he said. “I don’t know how to explain it, but we have been closer than Bo, Luke, and Daisy since the moment we met.

“Through the best, worst, and most challenging times of my life, Tom and Catherine have always been there,” he continued. “Forty-something years later, we could not be better friends.”

The actor is currently preparing for the launch of his new Christmas flick, Jingle Smells, which debuts on Thanksgiving Day, and his memoir, In the Driver’s Seat: Love, Loss & Living with No Regrets, available on Nov. 24. Schneider and his wife Alicia wrote the book together before she passed from breast cancer this past February. 

“It’s always a pleasure to spend time with John and Catherine. … We’ve been blessed to get along so well for 45 years, and the bonds are still strong,” he shared. 

Dukes of Hazzard originally aired from 1979 to 1985, and it follows the misadventures of Bo and Luke Duke as they fight the good fight against their corrupt small-town lawmen. They do so with the help of their friends and family and a souped-up 1969 Dodge Charger. 

The show was a massive hit in its day. According to the publication, nearly all of its 147 episodes brought up to 40 million viewers to CBS on Friday nights. That’s more than double how many people tune in for average NFL games today.
