Can you believe it's been 5 years since Rosewood first aired?! (5 years, 2 months, 12 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Rosewood end?
When Rosewood came to an end after 2 years in April 2017, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Pippy Rosewood (Gabrielle Dennis), Donna Rosewood (Lorraine Toussaint) and Dr. Beaumont Rosewood (Morris Chestnut). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Rosewood reunion disappoint people?
Rosewood aired from 2015-2017 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 Toussaint said she's not sure if Rosewood would work today. “I don't want to see old Donna Rosewood,” she told a journalist (Toussaint turned 60 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 Rosewood movie?
In a recent interview, Lorraine Toussaint said she can't imagine a Rosewood 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 Sam Witwer (who played Heath Casablanca) 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 Rosewood movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Rosewood film, Sherri Shepherd stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Rosewood reboot?
Recasting Rosewood 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 Rosewood reunion, a Rosewood movie, or a Rosewood reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
