Magda Szubanski finally addresses rumours there is a Kath & Kim reboot in the works

Magda Szubanski finally addressed rumours there is a Kath & Kim reboot in the works on Sunday.

When asked by TV Week if Jane Turner and Gina Riley were set to revive the beloved sitcom, Magda revealed she was unable to comment.

‘I’d have to kill you and your publishers and everyone else,’ she told the publication on the red carpet of the Logie Awards.

She jovially continued: ‘It would be a blood bath!’

Magda famously played fan favourite Sharon Strzelecki on the show which aired from 2002 to 2007. 

The news comes after actress Magda said a reboot was off the table last May. 

‘I think it should be off the table… It holds such a special place in people’s memories,’ the comedian told The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

‘If we did a live show, which was a “best of” or something like that, that’s different.

‘But to actually try and do a whole new series, I think you can never capture that magic again.’ 

Meanwhile, The Daily Telegraph claims the beloved Australian sitcom is planning a special ‘celebrating the much loved characters’ and ‘memorable moments’.

The special, which does not yet have an airdate, is a different project to the reboot of the series that was rumoured earlier this year. 

The Kath & Kim reboot is said to be already in pre-production and is expected to air on a streaming platform, not a free-to-air TV channel.

Kath & Kim aired on the ABC from 2002 to 2005, and on Channel Seven in 2007. 

The series also spawned the television movie Da Kath & Kim Code in 2005 and the feature film Kath & Kimderella in 2012.
