Josh Malina, who did his share of teasing of something in the works on social media, followed up with a post on X that said, “what, you were expecting a reboot?”

PREVIOUS: Maybe it’s a Super Bowl commercial. Or perhaps a reunion panel.

Either way, actors Joshua Malina and Mary McCormack are throwing their social media followers in a tizzy with a series of posts suggesting that a reboot of The West Wing is in the works for the drama’s 25th anniversary this year.

The most recent teaser came courtesy of McCormack, who played Deputy National Security Adviser Kate Harper on the NBC series from 2004-06. On Wednesday, she posted something on X that said “something very exciting in the works. We will be sharing it next week. Stay tuned for the big reveal Jan. 24.”

She then tagged series stars Malina, Allison B. Janney, Dulé Hill, Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, Melissa Fitzgerald, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Hrishikesh Hirway, the producer of the podcast The West Wing Weekly.

Earlier in the month, Malina dropped several tantalizing posts of his own on X.

A source over at Warner Bros. Discovery said nothing on their end was in the works.

Malina has been known to drop false hints before. A year ago this month, he posted on X that he “got back on Twitter just in time to talk about The West Wing reboot. Details soon!”
