"Soul Train" may ride again

Is Soul Train about to make a comeback? The venerable program, which ended its long run in 2006 after 35 seasons with little fanfare (the program simply went into weekly reruns afterward) may return in the future.

MadVision Entertainment, a company formed two years ago, has bought the rights to Soul Train from Don Cornelius Productions in a deal which includes existing episodes in the program’s library and the rights to future remakes – plus the right to distribute the program on new media platforms.

No word on when the Soul Train revival may hit the air, but MadVision is currently in talks in potential producers.

Trifecta Entertainment recently took over the syndication rights of The Best of Soul Train from now-defunct Tribune Entertainment.
