Can you believe it's been 7 years since Graceland first aired?! (7 years, 2 months, 2 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Graceland end?
When Graceland came to an end after 3 years in September 2015, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit), Paul Briggs / Odin Rossi (Daniel Sunjata), Johnny Tuturro (Manny Montana), Paige Arkin (Serinda Swan) and Catherine DeMarco (Vanessa Ferlito). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Graceland reunion disappoint people?
Graceland aired from 2013-2015 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 Tveit said he's not sure if Graceland would work today. “I don't want to see old Mike Warren,” he told a journalist (Tveit turned 36 in October). “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 Graceland movie?
In a recent interview, Carmine Giovinazzo (who played Lieutenant Sid Markham between 2014 and 2015) said he can't imagine a Graceland 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 Manny Montana 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 Graceland movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Graceland film, Vanessa Ferlito stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Graceland reboot?
Recasting Graceland 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 Graceland reunion, a Graceland movie, or a Graceland reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
