‘The West Wing’ cast and creator hint at “reboot”

The dramatic political series ended in 2006 after seven years on the air

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.
