Can you believe it's been 11 years since Seize the Day first aired?! (11 years, 4 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Seize the Day end?
When Seize the Day came to an end after 1 year in May 2010, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Luciana Saldanha Ribeiro (Alinne Moraes) and Helena Toledo (Taís Araújo). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Seize the Day reunion disappoint people?
Seize the Day aired from 2009-2010 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 Araújo said she's not sure if Seize the Day would work today. “I don't want to see old Helena Toledo,” she told a journalist (Araújo turned 41 in November). “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 Seize the Day movie?
In a recent interview, Roberta Almeida (who played Nice) said she can't imagine a Seize the Day 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 Thiago Lacerda (who played Bruno Marcondes) 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 Seize the Day movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Seize the Day film, Bárbara Paz stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Seize the Day reboot?
Recasting Seize the Day 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 Seize the Day reunion, a Seize the Day movie, or a Seize the Day reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
