Can you believe it's been 12 years since Satisfaction first aired?! (12 years, 8 months, 8 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Satisfaction end?
When Satisfaction came to an end after 3 years in February 2010, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Chloe (Diana Glenn). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Satisfaction reunion disappoint people?
Satisfaction aired from 2007-2010 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 Glenn said she's not sure if Satisfaction would work today. “I don't want to see old Chloe,” she told a journalist (Glenn turned 46 in March). “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 Satisfaction movie?
In a recent interview, Liam Hemsworth (who played Marc between 2008 and 2009) said he can't imagine a Satisfaction 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 Sullivan Stapleton (who played Josh until 2009) 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 Satisfaction movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Satisfaction film, Diana Glenn stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Satisfaction reboot?
Recasting Satisfaction 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 Satisfaction reunion, a Satisfaction movie, or a Satisfaction reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
