Return is a popular prime time series. Ever since its opening show(1988), Return has kept audiences at rapt attention as the stars do stupid things for love, acceptance, and jello. The stars are average high school students, living in the late seventies and early eighties, hence the name Return. Throughout the series the main characters find love, learn about life lessons and grow into better people. The show was canceled in 1999 because the writers ran out of life lessons.
