‘Happy Days’ star Henry Winkler talks reboot rumors and if he would return


Henry Winkler revealed he has “no idea” if fans will ever get a “Happy Days” reboot in which he could reprise his role as “The Fonz.”

However, the 77-year-old actor did reveal some possible requirements if the popular show were to make a comeback.

“I wouldn’t want to do it without Ron [Howard], without Don [Most], without Anson [Williams] and without Marion {Ross],” Winkler expressed to Fox News Digital at the Critics Choice Awards on Sunday.

He also said he wouldn’t want to do the show without Garry Marshall, who created and produced “Happy Days.” Marshall died in 2016.
