Mighty Ducks set to return for TV comeback

A new series based on beloved '90s franchise The Mighty Ducks is reportedly in early development at ABC Signature Studios.

Original writer Steven Brill and producer Jordan Kerner are said to be heading up the project, which isn't thought to have any stars attached just yet.

The Mighty Ducks was originally released as a film in 1992, before D2: The Mighty Ducks came out in 1994 and D3 in 1996.

An animated Mighty Ducks TV show also ran from 1996 - 1997.

The dramedy franchise follows a minor ice hockey team and developed a cult following.

News of the reboot comes a few years after the original film's cast got together for a reunion of its 20th anniversary.
