I see nothing… significantly attention-grabbing about the premise behind it. And but a sequel to Hogan’s Heroes is seemingly in the works.
As reported by our sister website Deadline, the unique sequence’ co-creator, Al Ruddy, in affiliation with Village Roadshow Leisure Group and Danny McBride’s Tough Footage, is creating a follow-up to the World Battle II-set comedy, which aired from September 1965 to April 1971 and starred Bob Crane (as Hogan), Werner Klemperer (Colonel Klink), Richard Dawson (Newkirk) and John Banner (Schultz), amongst others in a considerably rotating forged.
However whereas the unique sequence — presently considered one of my go-to MeTV night-enders— was set throughout World Battle II and adopted the titular POWs in a German jail camp, the sequel would happen all the method in the current day — that’s fairly a soar, if I paid consideration appropriately in historical past class — and comply with descendants of the “heroes” as they crew up for a globe-trotting treasure hunt.
Are you champing at the bit to meet up with Hogan’s, what, great-great-grandson…? Or is that this the case of an IP being misused?
