Can you believe it's been 7 years since Dulce Amargo first aired?! (7 years, 9 months, 8 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Dulce Amargo end?
When Dulce Amargo came to an end after 1 year in April 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Mariana Wilhelm (Scarlet Ortiz). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Dulce Amargo reunion disappoint people?
Dulce Amargo aired from 2012-2013 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 Ortiz said she's not sure if Dulce Amargo would work today. “I don't want to see old Mariana Wilhelm,” she told a journalist (Ortiz turned 46 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 Dulce Amargo movie?
In a recent interview, Cristóbal Lander (who played Julio César Bueno) said he can't imagine a Dulce Amargo 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 Scarlet Ortiz 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 Dulce Amargo movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
What about a Dulce Amargo reboot?
Recasting Dulce Amargo 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 Dulce Amargo reunion, a Dulce Amargo movie, or a Dulce Amargo reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
