Reading Rainbow to Return As Grown-Up Webisodes?

burton23.pngLeVar Burton, longtime host of Reading Rainbow, which ran from 1983-2006, has been stirring up rumors about a new version of the show, according to GalleyCat. First, he told his 1.6 million Twitter followers, in this tweet, that “Want y’all to know that I’m seriously moving forward with an idea for a new version of a Reading Rainbow like show. Webisodes for adults.”

More recently, he wrote another cryptic but exciting tweet suggesting Reading Rainbow might return in a form more akin to its previous incarnation: “You heard it here first… Reading Rainbow 2.0 is in the works! Stay tuned for more info. But, you don’t have to…”

Maybe he’ll cover eBooks…he’ll have to mention them, won’t he?
