Can you believe it's been 7 years since Relaciones peligrosas first aired?! (7 years, 5 months, 1 day to be exact.)
Why in the world did Relaciones peligrosas end?
When Relaciones peligrosas came to an end after 1 year in June 2012, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Patricia Milano (Ana Layevska) and Miranda Beatriz Cruz (Sandra Echeverría). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Relaciones peligrosas reunion disappoint people?
Relaciones peligrosas aired from 2012-2012 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 Layevska said she's not sure if Relaciones peligrosas would work today. “I don't want to see old Patricia Milano,” she told a journalist (Layevska turned 37 in January). “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 Relaciones peligrosas movie?
In a recent interview, Sandra Echeverría said she can't imagine a Relaciones peligrosas 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 Gabriel Coronel (who played Mauricio Blanco) 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 Relaciones peligrosas movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Relaciones peligrosas film, Ana Layevska stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Relaciones peligrosas reboot?
Recasting Relaciones peligrosas 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 Relaciones peligrosas reunion, a Relaciones peligrosas movie, or a Relaciones peligrosas reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
