Tina Fey Clarifies '30 Rock' Reboot Rumors

By

Not so fast -- it doesn't sound like 30 Rock is getting a reboot anytime soon. 

During a Thursday appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey addressed the rumors, revealing that she may have had something to do with them to begin with. 

"OK. Here’s what I’ll say. So we were on the red carpet for the Broadway opening [of Mean Girls] and someone was like, ‘Would you ever do a 30 Rock reboot?’ And I was like ‘Maybe …,’ she recalled.

“A little bit of that is on me, like I must be so thirsty for internet attention,” Fey joked. “Maybe I’m Banksy!"

In all seriousness, Fey confessed that she has thought about possibly reviving the NBC hit, which ended in 2013 after seven seasons. 

"[Executive producer] Robert Carlock and I, we would never do a straight reboot because that would be too easy. So we try to think of a way to do something," she explained. "What should we do? Like, a prequel that's like Muppet Babies? Or, like, set in a dystopian where there's a lot of, like, robot sex and, like, McBrayer comes like, 'Oh no!'"

"But if we get anything together, I promise you will be the first to know," she added. 

Later in the show, Fey surprised fans who had lined up to tell her how much she has inspired them. Watch below. 

ET was with Fey at the Broadway opening of Mean Girls, where, in addition to opening up about 30 Rock, she also revealed her favorite Mean Girls line.
