The host is in early talks to reboot “The Arsenio Hall Show,” his manager tells TheWrap.

Is there a chance Arsenio Hall could pull off a third return to television? His manager, John Ferriter, tells TheWrap a three-peat is possible.

“There’s been an outpouring of support,” Ferriter says. “We started getting calls over the weekend.”

CBS Television Distribution announced it was pulling the plug on “The Arsenio Hall Show” Friday. Ferriter said other outlets didn’t waste any time reaching out and Hall’s camp is already in “early talks” to reboot the series.

Unfortunately, TheWrap couldn’t find anyone willing to cop to those early talks.

An individual close to the production told TheWrap that E!, OWN and BET were among the media companies courting Hall. But when contacted by TheWrap, two outlets denied that they’ve reached out to the comedian and his reps.

An E! representative told TheWrap “no,” when asked if the network was interested in working with the comedian. Another individual inside the company said bluntly that Hall is “too old” for E!’s demographic.

A representative for OWN also insisted that the network hadn’t reached out to Hall’s representatives and OWN has no plans to bring him to their channel.
