Ruh roh!!!

Last month NBC gave the green light for a Murder, She Wrote reboot starring Octavia Spencer, but it has the original's Angela Lansbury seeing red!!!

In fact, Angela's so bummed about the revamp that she wants them to change the series' name!

Angela explained:

"I suddenly became a worldwide-known character as Jessica Fletcher and really built an enormous audience, which I have to this day. That was the thing that really made me a star in the minds of everybody. I think it's a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote because Murder, She Wrote will always be about Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person. … So I'm sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and it's their right."

Gurl, we get you!!!

Anyone would feel insulted and forgotten if they were being replaced by a younger thang!!!

What's the point in reboot" target="_blank">redoing some that was so AHmazing to begin with??! Can't we come up with some fresh ideas?!

In any case, Angela should rest easy knowing Oscar-winning Octavia will oh so obviously do the role justice!!!

    I love Jessica Fletcher and Angela Lansbury. I couldn't agree more. I will definitely check out the new Murder, She wrote because I love the original series, but it will never replace the timeless 12 seasons of this classic show. LOVE YOU ANGELA, YOU ARE IRREPLACEABLE.

    Loved the show, my late husband and I would watch it every week. After it went off the air we did not watch that much TV. Won't bother checking out the new show. I agree, the writers need to come up with original stuff.

    Loved Murder, She Wrote. If you have Netflix, you can stream it to your computer and watch the entire several years worth of episodes. Nobody will even come close to the class and acting chops of Angela Lansbury.

    She's right, this is blasphemous!
