With revivals of hit television shows like Will & Grace and Roseanne making a comeback, many country fans have had one question on their minds… will Reba also return to the small screen?

It’s possible, says Reba McEntire, who admitted the idea of a revival has been tossed around a time or two.

“There have been some in the past and hopefully some in the future too,” the legendary singer shared to Entertainment Tonight of network conversations about the show’s return to TV. “We’d love to do it.”

Though she’d love to be reunited with her beloved sitcom family, the iconic entertainer continues to look to grow her acting résumé with a variety of different roles.

“A dream role would be ten different kinds because I would like to hit all facets, you know the kooky neighbor down the hall or the heroine in a western,” she shared. “There’s just so many different types. I love to watch television. I love movies. So acting is something that it entertains me. Television and movies entertain me so I love to be entertained but I also love to entertain people.”

Reba ran from 2001 until 2007 on the WB and CW. McEntire’s acting career didn’t stop there as she starred in the one-season sitcom, Malibu Country, on ABC. Most recently, the “Fancy” singer had been working with Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry on a drama called Red Blooded, where she was set to star as Sheriff Ruby Adair. The show failed to be picked up by ABC for the fall lineup.
