After a 15-year hiatus, Reading Rainbow is finally coming back!
The beloved children's show, which aired on PBS from 1983 until 2006 and was hosted by LeVar Burton, will return as an updated version of the show called Reading Rainbow Live.!!
The show's creators say it will feature "a diverse, talented and comedic troupe of young performers" as hosts who will help young audiences develop a love for reading, and was developed in response to challenges presented by the pandemic.
Creative director Amy Guglielmo says, "We know it was a tough pandemic for parents, for caregivers, for teachers. We wanted to make sure that we have kids engaging with books and we're going to use movement and music to engage kids in learning." The show is expected to launch early next year.
