The Mr. Show show which famously starred David Cross – he was raised Jewish – and Bob Odenkirk just might be coming back to television this year. Rumors about a reunion have abounded since Paul F. Tompkins tweeted a picture of the gang all together again.
The comedy sketch show ran for four years in the late 90s and had 30 episodes. Its stars all went on to bigger and better things. David Cross famously starred as a dysfunctional doctor who chooses to leave medicine and pursue an acting career on the cult hit show Arrested Development. Odenkirk’s biggest role since then was as the corrupt New Mexico lawyer Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad. He is getting a spin off series which begins this year.

The selfie shows Tompkins from the nose up in front of a table where the seven other main member the Mr. Show troupe can be seen including Odenkirk and Cross. It came with the caption, “Eight men out… of the 1990s. Maybe something new coming from the Mr. Show gang in the new year? #MrShow.”
The table seems to be a writers’ table with plenty of pens and notepads strewn over it. This suggested to everyone who saw it that the 8 men are working on a new Mr. Show. However, they could just as easily be working on a different project or just be playing a prank on their fans.
