Can you believe it's been 8 years since Orphan Black first aired?! (8 years, 8 months, 4 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Orphan Black end?
When Orphan Black came to an end after 5 years in August 2017, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Paul Dierden (Dylan Bruce), Felix Dawkins (Jordan Gavaris) and Tatiana Maslany. And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Orphan Black reunion disappoint people?
Orphan Black aired from 2013-2017 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 Gavaris said he's not sure if Orphan Black would work today. “I don't want to see old Felix Dawkins,” he told a journalist (Gavaris turned 32 in September). “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 Orphan Black movie?
In a recent interview, Elyse Levesque (who played Detective Maddy Enger in 2017) said she can't imagine an Orphan Black 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 Ksenia Solo (who played Shay Davydov in 2015) 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 Orphan Black movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Orphan Black film, Jordan Gavaris stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an Orphan Black reboot?
Recasting Orphan Black 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 Orphan Black reunion, an Orphan Black movie, or an Orphan Black reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
