If When they bring back these old shows they will have to have all new cast and crew

and that may not be as good as the originals we all liked to watch

True but we have CG, video archieves, fan base to make show better than orig Today.Only if fans ignored IE Will Smith Wild Wild West movie.

It's true. A remake is always a risk, especially when the series had a big impact and has a large fan base.

But, sometimes, people would like for their favorite series to come back to life, even with the risk of them failing. This is just to see which one people would really like to relive, even with a different approach

I did some search on the series you recommended me to add to the list, but I only saw one that I think should go there (Wild Wild West). The other ones don't have a good score or don't have a number of significant votes from users

And I couldn't find the series 12 O Clock High

In the meantime, I added Wild Wild West to the list

There was a discussion on MASH subreddit a month ago regarding whether reboot will work and people got to inevitable conclusion that since in Korean war everyone was there against that will and in most latter cases inclusing Iraq it was hardly the case, it won't quite have the same appeal. 

However, we've seen some recent TV remakes working astonishingly well, so who knows.

It Takes a Thief, Highway Patrol, Ripcord,

Those were really good suggestions.

I added them to the list, except for Ironside, since it has some sort of a recent remake, and apparently it failed.

I think so.

Westworld has a big part with a Western vibe, and it's successful.

the longest running  (Western) series in the history of television .. ? ?

Gunsmoke  (1955-1975) Seasons: 20
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047736/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047736/reference
James Arness   ...    Matt Dillon (635 episodes, 1955-1975) 

Trivia

In the show's twenty-year run,
James Arness was the only actor who appeared in every episode.

Denver Pyle and Raymond Burr were considered for the role of Matt Dillon.

This show, along with The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp (1955),
helped usher in great era of the television western.
Westerns became so popular on television, that by the end of the 1950s,
there would be as many as forty of them airing in primetime.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098844/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098844/reference

Trivia

With the airing of its twentieth season, beginning September 25, 2009,
this show tied the record held by Gunsmoke (1955)
for the longest running prime-time drama series on U.S. television
(other shows, such as Saturday Night Live (1975) and The Simpsons (1989)
have lasted longer, but in other genres).
However, it was announced in May 2010
that the series was not renewed for the 2010-2011 season,
so the "Gunsmoke" tie remains unbroken.

could have Maverick/Lawman/Dead or Alive & Wild  Wild West merger for some TV movie alone. & use High Chapperal as base for action in area.
