Can you believe it's been 12 years since Reba first aired?! (12 years, 9 months, 19 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Reba end?
When Reba came to an end after 6 years in February 2007, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Reba Nell Hart (Reba McEntire). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Reba reunion disappoint people?
Reba aired from 2001-2007 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 McEntire said she's not sure if Reba would work today. “I don't want to see old Reba Nell Hart,” she told a journalist (McEntire turned 59 in March). “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 Reba movie?
In a recent interview, Steve Howey (who played Van Montgomery) said he can't imagine a Reba 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 Reba McEntire 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 Reba movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
What about a Reba reboot?
Recasting Reba 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 Reba reunion, a Reba movie, or a Reba reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
