CBS revived several of their beloved procedural dramas in recent years, and Cold Case is the next one in line. Meredith Stiehm, the creator of the original series, is currently plotting a potential follow-up with Warner Bros. TV and CBS.

Cold Case followed the journey of Lilly Rush, a homicide detective working for a fictionalized Philadelphia Police Department division that specializes in cold cases. This police procedural ran on CBS for seven seasons between 2003 and 2010, and they’re planning to bring it back for another ride.

The reboot would kick off 15 years after the original series ended its run, and it would center on a new team of tenacious detectives investigating cold cases across the Southwest. The new location would probably bring many changes our way, and introduce us to a new group of characters tackling unsolved homicides.

According to Deadline, no actors are attached to this project, but the reboot could potentially mark the comeback of several fan-favorite characters. Danny Pino could return as Scotty Valens, while Kathryn Morris could appear in a limited capacity, even though she hasn’t been approached yet.

The cast of the original series also included John Finn, Jeremy Ratchford, Thom Barry, Tracie Thoms, and Justin Chambers, who left the show after the first season.
