The current political situation in America has many people wishing to go back to a simpler time, when the US President seemed infallible, all his staff were hardworking patriots and it never felt like things could really get too bad.
No, we’re not talking about the Barack Obama presidency – we’re of course referring to the left-wing wish fulfilment of TV drama The West Wing, which depicted the political trials of President Jed Bartlet (Martin Sheen) and his staff and became one of the biggest shows in the world during its 1999-2006 run.
Now Josh Malina (who played Will Bailey on the series) has revealed that a number of the cast recently met for dinner, where – if his caption is to be believed – they may have actually discussed the reboot more concretely.
Whether this is a serious meeting, some idle chat or just a joke about old friends catching up, one thing is for sure – it’s certainly going to excite the fans who are still holding out hope for The West Wing’s return.
