The A-Team is coming back to our screens!

And this time it’ll be written by Fast & Furious writer Chris Morgan.

Yes, 20th Century Fox are looking to bring back the classic TV series about a bunch of wrongly imprisoned soldiers who escape and survive by helping people in need. Like we needed to tell you what The A-Team Was!

Anyway, the series will this time see the Team being made up of men and women, not just (mostly) men like the classic show.

It’s being described as: The new A-Team revolves around a diverse team of American Special Forces operatives. Unlike the original all-male squad, the new team will include both male and female members. The group has been framed for a crime they didn’t commit and set out to clear their names by uncovering the black-ops conspiracy that set them up. Along the way, they are driven to help those in need by using their singular military skills, high-tech expertise and often conflicting individual approaches. It’s described as a fun episodic mission-of-the-week show that mixes big action-adventure sequences with compelling characters, inventive cons and lots of humor.

Of course the movie was most recently realised as a movie – which was more fun than most people would have you believe – starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper which, sadly, failed to find its audience to earn a sequel. Perhaps the TV series will do better…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
