Can you believe it's been 32 years since Quinceañera first aired?! (32 years, 10 months, 8 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Quinceañera end?
When Quinceañera came to an end after 1 year in February 1988, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Maricruz (Adela Noriega), Pancho (Ernesto Laguardia) and Beatriz (Thalía). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Quinceañera reunion disappoint people?
Quinceañera aired from 1987-1988 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 Noriega said she's not sure if Quinceañera would work today. “I don't want to see old Maricruz,” she told a journalist (Noriega turned 50 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,” she added.
Still hoping for a Quinceañera movie?
In a recent interview, Ernesto Laguardia said he can't imagine a Quinceañera 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 Adela Noriega 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 Quinceañera movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Quinceañera film, Thalía stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Quinceañera reboot?
Recasting Quinceañera 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 Quinceañera reunion, a Quinceañera movie, or a Quinceañera reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
