Why in the world did In Living Color end?

Would an In Living Color reunion disappoint people?
In Living Color aired from 1990-1994 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 Foxx said he's not sure if In Living Color would work today. “I don't want to see old me,” he told a journalist (Foxx turned 52 in December). “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 In Living Color movie?
In a recent interview, Jamie Foxx said he can't imagine an In Living Color 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 Carrie Ann Inaba 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 In Living Color movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an In Living Color film, Jim Carrey stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an In Living Color reboot?
Recasting In Living Color 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 In Living Color reunion, an In Living Color movie, or an In Living Color reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
