Can you believe it's been 18 years since Everwood first aired?! (18 years, 11 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Everwood end?
When Everwood came to an end after 4 years in June 2006, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Amy Abbott (Emily VanCamp), Ephram Brown (Gregory Smith) and Doctor Andy Brown (Treat Williams). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Everwood reunion disappoint people?
Everwood aired from 2002-2006 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 Smith said he's not sure if Everwood would work today. “I don't want to see old Ephram Brown,” he told a journalist (Smith turned 37 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,” he added.
Still hoping for an Everwood movie?
In a recent interview, Anne Heche (who played Amanda Hayes) said she can't imagine an Everwood 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 Sarah Lancaster (who played Madison Kellner) 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 Everwood movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Everwood film, Christopher Egan stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an Everwood reboot?
Recasting Everwood 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 an Everwood reunion, an Everwood movie, or an Everwood reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
