The TV business is pretty cyclical, and as new shows become hits, old shows are forgotten. Along with them, so are a lot of the actors. So here are some old-school sci-fi stars we’d like to see back on the small screen — along with where we think they might fit.

You don’t have to go back too far to find some beloved sci-fi shows that time forgot, but luckily the fans have a much longer memory. The 1990s were filled with awesome sci-fi shows, from vampire hunting to alien invasions.

As much as we love all the stars we have today, it’s easy to forget all the beloved characters that made us fall in love with everything from Farscape to Seven Days all those years ago. But it’s not enough to just figure out who we miss — we also have to find a good place to fit them in the current TV landscape.

Nostalgia, meet the modern day.
