Members of The West Wing‘s cast and its creator, Aaron Sorkin, have teased fans of the show by suggesting a possibility of a “reboot”.
The political drama aired for seven seasons from 1999 to 2006, starring an ensemble cast which included Martin Sheen, Allison Janney and Rob Lowe.
Rumours of a possible revival of the show have come and gone in the years since, but a new picture posted overnight by actor Joshua Malina of him having dinner with Sorkin and several of The West Wing‘s core cast members – such as Bradley Whitford (who played Josh) and Janel Moloney (Donna) – has further hinted at a reunion.

Sorkin has previously spoken about a possible revival of The West Wing, suggesting that This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown could play the President.
“There’s some kind of jam, an emergency, a very delicate situation involving the threat of war or something, and [President] Bartlet [played by Sheen], long since retired, is consulted in the way that Bill Clinton used to consult with Nixon,” Sorkin told The Hollywood Reporter last year about a potential idea for a reboot.
Back in 2016, members of The West Wing cast reunited to support Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated campaign for the US presidency.
