Would an Everybody Hates Chris reunion disappoint people?

But Arnold said she's not sure if Everybody Hates Chris would work today. “I don't want to see old Rochelle,” she told a journalist (Arnold turned 51 in June). “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 Everybody Hates Chris movie?
In a recent interview, Tyler James Williams said he can't imagine an Everybody Hates Chris 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 Tichina Arnold 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 Everybody Hates Chris movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Everybody Hates Chris film, Terry Crews stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
