Could it be made in this day and age or would it be considered too taboo?

They could make a modern version of it, but I guarantee it wouldn't be any good. Flying Nun was a product of it's time, fantasy sitcoms were popular in the 1960's. It's not the greatest show but is a cute show, special effects were primitive as often times the wires attached to Sally Field as she "flew" through the air were very visible. But the series has a time capsule quality of the late 1960's. The 3rd season needs to be issued on DVD so the series can be completed.

It might work on one of the Christian channels, but in prime time there would be too much protest. Sad but true. I don't think you even have to be Christian to find it charming but nowadays it is so difficult to do literally anything without offending someone.
Plus the corniness of the show wouldn't work very well in today's ultra cynical world. It, like most of the other sitcoms of the 60s and early 70s, would probably be laughed off the air. And that's very sad.
