Five years after the show ended, Reading Rainbow has since been making a comeback as an internet-based outreach project. The project was started in 2012 with the goal of making Reading Rainbow content available on the iPad to everyone in the world. But as it progressed, feedback came in asking for the app to be available to more than just the iPad, and their ambitions grew, and the existing funding method of an optional low monthly fee for premium content proved to be insufficient (since said fee was already being used for funding the server space and content royalty). A Website/{{Kickstarter}} [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/readingrainbow/bring-reading-rainbow-back-for-every-child-everywh campaign]] for the project was started, and it reached its $1,000,000 goal ''[[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments before the first day was finished]]''. As you can imagine, [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/readingrainbow/bring-reading-rainbow-back-for-every-child-everywh/posts/858121 Burton is overwhelmed by this support]]. In all, the project received over $5.4 million in donations and set a record for [[http://www.latimes.com/books/jacketcopy/la-et-jc-reading-rainbow-the-most-popular-kickstarter-ever-20140702-story.html most individual backers]] for a Kickstarter campaign.

Reading Rainbow has a Youtube Page. You could get your Reading Rainbow fix [[https://www.youtube.com/user/readingrainbow/featured here]], however at this time almost all content has been removed and the future of the above-discussed efforts is in flux due to [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/reading-rainbow-owner-accuses-levar-burton-theft-extortion-lawsuit-1027372 an ongoing lawsuit]] by producer/PBS station [=WNED=] alleging that Burton is capitalizing on the show's name, having hosted the show but not actually owning the rights to it ([=LeVar=] had thought that he had bought out the entire franchise, which turned out to be incorrect). In October 2017, however, [=WNED=] announced on the show's [[http://www.readingrainbow.com official website]] that "Recent legal disputes between WNED and [=LeVar=] Burton/RRKIDZ have been resolved and RRKIDZ no longer licenses the ''Reading Rainbow'' brand from WNED. WNED is currently working on the next chapter of ''Reading Rainbow'' and will continue its mission of fostering education for a new generation."

" Time will tell whether InternetBackdraft will have any effect on this reboot, as [=WNED=] did ruffle the feathers of a number of fans of [=LeVar=]'s.
