The Sundance channel recently acquired the rights to the ‘90s cult classic that put Claire Danes and Jared Leto on the map.
“My So-Called Life” will air on The Sundance Channel come April 25 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
Despite critical acclaim and a spot on Time magazine’s list of “The 100 Best Shows of All-Time," ABC’s hour-long teen drama ended after just 19 episodes in 1995.
“We love ‘My So-Called Life’ because it’s both substantive and engaging,” Sarah Barnett, Sundance’s general manager and executive vice president said in a statement. “We’re delighted to bring back the series for the passionate audience that adored the show when it first premiered and we’re thrilled to introduce it to a whole new audience that can enjoy it for the first time.”
Danes received the Golden Globe Award for best actress in a television series drama for her role as main character Angela Chase, a high school sophomore struggling to find a place for herself.
“The timeless stories hold up brilliantly,” Barnett adds.
