Cast of "CHiPs" To Reunite

Cast of "CHiPs" To Reunite

The cast of the iconic 70’s TV series “CHiPs”, the show that introduced the world to Erik Estrada and a young actor named 

Michael Dorn who went on to stardom as Worf in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”, will reunite this fall in Los Angeles to celebrate the show’s 35th anniversary. So far Larry Wilcox (Jon Baker), Robert Pine (Joe Getraer), Brodie Greer (Barry Baricza) Lew Saunders (Gene Fritz), Lou Wagner (Harlan Arliss), Paul Linke (Artie Grossman) and Bruce Penhall (Bruce Nelson) are scheduled to attend along with a special appearance by Randi Oakes (Bonnie Clark). They’ll gather at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport on September 15th.

Anyone over the age of 30 probably grew up with this show, either first run or through the many years it ran in syndication. Its popularity remained so high after its cancelation in 1983 that a reunion movie was produced by TNT in 1998. It brought most of the cast back together and garnered high ratings. Since then the first two seasons have been released on DVD and Warner Brothers claims to be working on a big screen version to star Wilmer Valderrama as Ponch. The studio has been rather tightlipped about it and as of yet no release date has been scheduled.

Fans are welcome to attend the celebration. Tickets are $60 for adults and $25 for children and a special hotel rate is also available. You can find more info at the event’s official website, http://chipsreunion.com.

What other 70's shows would you like to see reunions for? I personally would love to see the surviving cast of "Barney Miller" reunite as well as the casts of "M*A*S*H" and "Emergency!".  Leave comment and tell me your favorites!
