Can you believe it's been 21 years since Judging Amy first aired?! (21 years, 4 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Judging Amy end?
When Judging Amy came to an end after 6 years in May 2005, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Judge Amy Madison Gray (Amy Brenneman) and Maxine Gray (Tyne Daly). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Judging Amy reunion disappoint people?
Judging Amy aired from 1999-2005 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 Brenneman said she's not sure if Judging Amy would work today. “I don't want to see old Judge Amy Madison Gray,” she told a journalist (Brenneman turned 56 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 a Judging Amy movie?
In a recent interview, Tyne Daly said she can't imagine a Judging Amy 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 Amy Brenneman 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 Judging Amy movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Judging Amy film, Jennifer Esposito stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Judging Amy reboot?
Recasting Judging Amy 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 Judging Amy reunion, a Judging Amy movie, or a Judging Amy reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
