On the future of the soap genre: Despite efforts to cut costs and produce so-called reality television, there is clearly a trend to revive scripted series that highlight the work of talented actors. Reboots of dramatic and comedic programs such as Roseanne and Twin Peaks prove that viewers are yearning for a revival of creative television.
