Can you believe it's been 15 years since Medium first aired?! (15 years, 7 months, 12 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Medium end?
When Medium came to an end after 7 years in January 2011, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Medium reunion disappoint people?
Medium aired from 2005-2011 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 Arquette said she's not sure if Medium would work today. “I don't want to see old Allison Dubois,” she told a journalist (Arquette turned 52 in April). “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 Medium movie?
In a recent interview, Kathy Baker (who played Mrs. Dubois) said she can't imagine a Medium 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 Sofia Vassilieva (who played Ariel Dubois) 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 Medium movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Medium film, Will McCormack stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Medium reboot?
Recasting Medium 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 Medium reunion, a Medium movie, or a Medium reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
