Can you believe it's been 17 years since Clase 406 first aired?! (17 years, 8 months, 26 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Clase 406 end?
When Clase 406 came to an end after 2 years in October 2003, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Enrique González (Aarón Díaz), Jessica Riquelme Drech (Anahí) and Marcela Mejía (Dulce María). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Clase 406 reunion disappoint people?
Clase 406 aired from 2002-2003 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 Díaz said he's not sure if Clase 406 would work today. “I don't want to see old Enrique González,” he told a journalist (Díaz turned 38 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,” he added.
Still hoping for a Clase 406 movie?
In a recent interview, Aarón Díaz said he can't imagine a Clase 406 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 Sara Maldonado (who played Tatiana del Moral) 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 Clase 406 movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Clase 406 film, Sebastián Rulli stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Clase 406 reboot?
Recasting Clase 406 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 Clase 406 reunion, a Clase 406 movie, or a Clase 406 reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
