Knight Rider is changing gears for the back half of the season.
Recently granted a full season by NBC, the drama is now out to finish its freshman year on a high by undergoing a major reboot. Rider is set to dump three regulars - Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Yancey Arias and Bruce Davison - after the initial 13 episodes and will revamp the show to draw more parallels to its '80s original, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
