Johnson will again head up San Francisco’s Special Investigation Unit in what is reportedly a 2 hour special. But it could serve as the springboard to a further series. Creator Carlton Cuse is not attached.
The Hollywood Reporter notes the revival will pick up with Nash Bridges, circa 2020, still running San Francisco’s SIU and confronting a changing city, a new boss and a world in which police work focuses on modern data-crunching and predictive policing. Although the world around him has changed, Nash hasn’t.
The original series ran for six seasons from 1996 to 2001 and is currently replaying in Australia on 10 BOLD.
USA Network declined to comment.
