Overview: Max Headroom is a British-produced American satirical science fiction television series by Chrysalis Visual Programming and Lakeside Productions for Lorimar-Telepictures that aired in the United States on ABC from March 1987 to May 1988. The series was based on the Channel 4 British TV pilot produced by Chrysalis, Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future. The series is often mistaken as an American-produced show due to the setting and its use of an almost entirely US cast along with being broadcast in the USA on the ABC network. Cinemax aired the UK pilot followed by a six-week run of highlights from The Max Headroom Show, a music video show where Headroom appears between music videos. ABC took an interest in the pilot and asked Chrysalis/Lakeside to produce the series for US audiences. The show went into production in late 1986 and ran for six episodes in the first season with eight being produced in season two.

Looks like Max Headroom may be coming back to TV! With the original UK version of Max Headroom going back to 1985, and with a likely air date of 2023 or later, that means it'd be a 38 year sequel with the original actor. 🤯 Yep, Matt Frewer is expected to return.

This would technically be the third Max Headroom series starring Frewer with the original being the Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future shorts which led to the 1985 UK series which lead to the 1987 US version.

That's one heck of a time span for a sequel. I wonder what the storyline will be... :unsure:
