Several TV stations, as well as the streaming landscape, are now embracing the idea that what is old is new again, and it is nothing but nostalgic. In this time filled with so much uncertainty, we can’t help but cling to the good old days.
With that thought in mind, a lot of fans are wondering: is the Hee Haw TV series coming back soon?
Rumors spread like wildfire that the Roy Clark and Buck Owens-hosted show – which ran for three decades from 1969 to 1997 – will soon be coming back to the airwaves. However, this time it’s going to have a brand-new set of casts with fresh episodes.
The news came after Ryman Hospitality – who owns the rights to the franchise – said that the company is looking at the possibility of bringing back a country music-based variety show after the massive success of the country music drama Nashville. The popular show has even made a significant impact on its namesake city – with Nashville seeing an increase in tourism.

So, what do you think about a Hee Haw revival? Make sure not to get your hopes up too high as there is no done deal just yet.
