The Amazon period drama Good Girls Revolt, which followed a group of female researchers in the late 1960s dealing with sexual harassment in journalism, is looking to make a comeback after it was canceled by head of Amazon Studios Roy Price, who resigned after sexual harassment claims.

According to Deadline, series creator Dana Colvo has said that Price didn’t like the show and had not even watched the first season when he decided Amazon shouldn’t order a second one. And that was surprising considering Good Girls Revolt was reportedly, for women 18 to 49, one of the biggest Amazon original series. In an interview with the New York Times last month Colvo said Price confirmed he never watched the show because, in conversation, he wanted them to refer to the characters by the actresses names because “he was unfamiliar.”

While GGR had trouble finding a buyer after it was canceled in December 2016, given the current wave of sexual harassment claims occurring in the entertainment industry, the show seems more relevant than ever. The show itself is based on the book of the same written by former Newsweek writer Lynn Povich, about how women filed a lawsuit against the magazine in 1970. Now, Deadline reports that multiple outlets including Sony TV are interested in picking up the series, but whether it will include the exact same cast and storylines remains to be seen.
