Death of Reboots? Exploring the future of nostalgia in a fractured media reality

Tuesday, February 12, 2019
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM

The rise of SVODs may provide more options to producers looking to find homes for their content, but it has also broken up the kids media landscape even more, leading to fewer kids on average watching any given show. So while reboots are a hot ticket right now, as today’s kids grow up, they may not be able to muster a compelling enough collective voice to call for their favorite shows to be brought back. In this session, we’ll take a closer look at the shifting dynamics that may threaten the future of reboots.
