When does The Greatest American Hero return?

The Greatest American Hero is an American comedy-drama superhero television series. It premiered as a two-hour pilot movie on March 18, 1981, and ran until February 2, 1983. The lead character's surname was changed from "Hinkley" to "Hanley" for the latter part of the first season.
Ralph Hinkley (Katt) is a Los Angeles public school substitute teacher of remedial education high school students. During a school field trip, he encounters extraterrestrials who give him a suit which endows him with superhuman abilities. Ralph's uniform grants him the powers of flight, super strength, invulnerability, invisibility, precognition, X-ray vision, super speed, pyrokinesis, shrinking, psychometry ("holographic vision") and even the ability to detect the supernatural.
