Is there any tv show or movie (over 20 years old or more) that has long ended without resolution in character or plot (due to being cancelled or planned sequel failed to be made) that you would like to come to fruition (with or without the original cast) to be made today or rebooted?

An amuse bouche if you like.

Dark Skies.

This is an American problem, programme makers are allowed to believe their show will run for six seasons then it's pulled after three.

That doesn't happen over here, usually they're told they'll only get one season so it has an ending, then season 2 comes along, with another ending.

Look at Doctor Who. It was a cheap filler only meant to last one season.

@tsarstepan,
Land of the Giants - a strange late 1960s series from Irwin Allen. Earthlings end up on a planet where everything is larger. The usual theme is not to get caught by the giant people or killed by giant cats or birds.

TV shows from the Babylon 5 universe. Especially ones that resolve the storyline started by Crusade.

J. Michael Straczynski must have total control over the project. No having some moron substitute their vision for his.

We also need 4K/high-dynamic-range/ATMOS versions made of the original shows (with J. Michael Straczynski in charge of the restoration).

If I ever win hundreds of millions of dollars in the lottery, I'll see to it that it happens.

Not sure ... after so many years, I wonder how they would handle the Community movie repeatedly promised under the "six seasons and a movie" mantra that the producers and cast were oft repeating in their attempt to resuscitate it back from cancellation.

I thought Carnivale ended too soon.

@tsarstepan,
I would just leave it up to J. Michael Straczynski to create whatever he wants however he sees fit.

@oralloy,
Warner Brothers has scanned the original negatives from Babylon 5. All scenes without special effects are now available in 1080p high definition.

All scenes with special effects have been upscaled directly from the original 480p renders, which is not quite what I was looking for (I want the special effects to be re-rendered in 4K HDR widescreen), but it still makes for a dramatic improvement over what was available before.

https://www.engadget.com/babylon-5-remastered-hbo-max-digital-download-080058907.html

They did botch the pilot episode though. Despite the rest of the series not being shown in widescreen (since this remaster is still based on the original 480p renders), they show the pilot episode in faux widescreen by cropping off the top and bottom of the picture.

Aside from the pilot episode, well done. But now let's look into re-rendering those special effects in 4K HDR widescreen.

The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp - Hugh O'Brian. Ended at the OK Corral conflict but did a TV movie about the actual fight.
