Would an Abyss of Passion reunion disappoint people?
Abyss of Passion aired from 2012-2012 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture.

But Boyer said she's not sure if Abyss of Passion would work today. “I don't want to see old Elisa Castañón Bouvier,” she told a journalist (Boyer turned 33 in July). “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 an Abyss of Passion movie?
In a recent interview, Ludwika Paleta (who played Estefanía Bouvier de Castañón) said she can't imagine an Abyss of Passion 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 David Zepeda has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Abyss of Passion movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Abyss of Passion film, Angelique Boyer stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
