Actor LeVar Burton has 1.6 million Twitter followers, and treated them all to some news over the weekend. Here’s the tweet: “You heard it here first… Reading Rainbow 2.0 is in th works! Stay tuned for more info. But, you don’t have to…”

Burton has continued to interact with his fans on Twitter, and this is not the first rumored return of the show.
