Can you believe it's been 10 years since Nip/Tuck first aired?! (10 years, 7 months, 18 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Nip/Tuck end?
When Nip/Tuck came to an end after 7 years in March 2010, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Doctor Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh), Julia McNamara (Joely Richardson) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Nip/Tuck reunion disappoint people?
Nip/Tuck aired from 2003-2010 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Richardson said she's not sure if Nip/Tuck would work today. “I don't want to see old Julia McNamara,” she told a journalist (Richardson turned 49 in January). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Nip/Tuck movie?
In a recent interview, Portia de Rossi (who played Olivia Lord) said she can't imagine a Nip/Tuck reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Vanessa Redgrave (who played Dr. Erica Noughton) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Nip/Tuck movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Nip/Tuck film, Joely Richardson stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Nip/Tuck reboot?
Recasting Nip/Tuck for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Nip/Tuck reunion, a Nip/Tuck movie, or a Nip/Tuck reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
