‘Dukes Of Hazzard’ Stars Reunite, Tease Potential Reboot Of Hit ’80s TV Series

Never say never. Former Dukes of Hazzard stars John Schneider, Catherine Bach and Tom Wopat reunited with fellow castmates Byron Cherry, Jeff Altman and Rick Hurst at Gallatin Comic Con 2023 in Tennessee recently where talk of a possible reboot of the hit ’80s TV comedy series surfaced.

“As far as a Dukes reunion,” Bach teased in an interview with Fox News Digital, “anything is possible.”

Bach starred as Daisy Duke, Schneider as Bo Duke and Wopat as Luke Duke in the hit action-comedy-drama series that aired for seven seasons on CBS from 1979 to 1985. The series, inspired by the 1975 film Moonrunners about a bootlegger family, revolved around the adventures of cousins Bo and Luke, modern-day Robin Hoods who continually tried to outwit a corrupt sheriff and “greedy rich, city slickers.”

The series also was not without controversy due to images of the Confederate flag that had been used in the show. In 2015, TV Land yanked Dukes out of rotation after Warner Bros. Consumer Products’ announced it would stop participating in Confederate flag merchandising. Warner Bros. had produced the CBS series that featured a car named General Lee that was festooned with a large Confederate flag on its roof.

The show spawned two TV reunion movies that aired on CBS, The Dukes of Hazzard Reunion! in 1997 and The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood in 2000. It also inspired two films, The Dukes of Hazzard released in 2005, and a direct-to-video prequel The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning in 2007.
