Pitch Perfect (TV Reboot)
Joe Letizio Arts and Entertainment editor
The NBC streaming service Peacock plans to bring back Adam Devine to headline a Pitch Perfect reboot TV series. The new television show will take place years after the events of Pitch Perfect and focus on Bumper’s attempt to revive his music career in Germany. In the films, Bumper was the selfish leader of The Treblemakers in Pitch Perfect 2.
While Pitch Perfect was an instant smash-hit when it came out in 2012, it will be interesting if this TV Reboot will gain the same success. Creating a show around Bumper seems like the wrong choice, as he was seen as an antagonist. Though this show has the possibility of making Bumper a more sympathetic character, if this is not the case and they continue to show Bumper as the same character in the movies then I see this show failing to connect with viewers like the movie did 9 years ago.
