She acknowledged that the rumors began with her and a comment she made on the red carpet for her new Mean Girls musical.
“Here’s what I’ll say. So we were on the red carpet for the Broadway opening and someone was like, ‘Would you ever do a “30 Rock” reboot?’ And I was like ‘Maybe …,’” Fey told Fallon.
“And a little bit of that is on me,” Fey told Fallon. “I must be so thirsty for Internet attention (that) I was like, ‘Maybe.'”
She went on to say, “It’s either say yes to stuff like that or I have to walk around CVS holding Poise pads trying to get in ‘Stars, They’re Just Like Us.’ So thirsty for attention.”
Fey did acknowledge though, that she and co-showrunner Robert Carlock have talked about the possibility of a reboot amid the current revival frenzy, but added that it wouldn’t be “a straight reboot because that would be too easy.”
“We’re trying to think of a way to do something. What should we do, like, a prequel like Muppet Babies”, or having the series “set in a dystopian future where there’s a lot of robot sex and (Jack) McBrayer comes and is like, ‘Oh no!'”
But she added, “If we get anything together, I promise you will be the first to know.”
