Bill Cosby says no to show reunion

Bill Cosby has no desire to reunite the Huxtable family for a Cosby Show reunion.

The 76-year-old actor has made it clear that he achieved what he wanted to achieve with the show and that he has no plans to reunite the cast.

The comedian's hit series ran from 1984 – 1992 and was the number one show in America for five of those years.

Speaking to Eonline.com Cosby said:  "We laid out eight years of trying to do our best and we did a great job because the people came in numbers, saying the following, 'I want my house back'.

"And we took the house back by way of the TV. That's what I wanted to take it away from. I was tired of seeing little kids, not that they were brighter, not that they were smarter, but they were just ill-mannered children with no respect, and writers were giving these lines to these children. 

"I kept thinking, 'These writers must have had a horrible time, horrible experience with the parents'."

Cosby is keen to return to TV. He added: "I am happy to announce that there are certain networks giving me time to go into their office to explain what I have written and what I want to do and many of them sound very receptive."
