In 2016, Fox aired the charming and delightful drama PITCH—co-created by Dan Fogelman and Rick Singer—about the first female player to make it to the MLB. The ten-episode season followed Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) as she navigated playing at the highest level on the San Diego Padres and dealing with the reality of being a trailblazer.

Unfortunately, Fox opted to not renew the series–which ended on a cliffhanger—and it seemed destined to be a short-lived cult classic. (The series has been off-on legal streaming sites; a DVD set was finally released in 2018.)

However, with Fogelman (who also created THIS IS US) figuring out which company he wants to sign an overall deal with when his contract with 20th Century Fox expires, a report from The Hollywood Reporter said the studio could use a potential PITCH revival to keep the scribe with them. (A rep for the show had no comment on the revival talks.)

While many of the cast and crew responded to THR’s report on social media, Fogelman’s may have been the most telling. “I sure did love that office…,” he wrote besides a photo at the Padres’ ballpark.

“[People missing PITCH] is probably the number one thing people say when I’m giving interviews or on social media,” Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played catcher Mike Lawson, admitted before the latest news broke. (Gosselaar most recently starred on Fox’s THE PASSAGE, which is awaiting word on its fate.)

And fans weren’t alone in missing the series: “I’m ready to do a limited thing for PITCH,” Gosselaar said. “Given the new structure at Fox and Disney, there’s room for something. I know the rest of the actors and writers would be willing to do it as well. I’m hoping there’s a fun wrap-up. I feel it[s end] was premature. It was a very positive experience and something [I would go back to] in a heartbeat.”
