Can you believe it's been 18 years since Salomé first aired?! (18 years, 9 months, 19 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Salomé end?
When Salomé came to an end after 1 year in May 2002, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Salomé (Edith González). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Salomé reunion disappoint people?
Salomé aired from 2001-2002 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 González said she's not sure if Salomé would work today. “I don't want to see old Salomé,” she told a journalist (González turned 55 in December). “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 Salomé movie?
In a recent interview, Niurka Marcos (who played Karicia) said she can't imagine a Salomé 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 Edith González 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 Salomé movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
What about a Salomé reboot?
Recasting Salomé 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 Salomé reunion, a Salomé movie, or a Salomé reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
