Can you believe it's been 7 years since Suburgatory first aired?! (7 years, 11 months, 20 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Suburgatory end?
When Suburgatory came to an end after 3 years in May 2014, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Tessa Altman (Jane Levy) and George Altman (Jeremy Sisto). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Suburgatory reunion disappoint people?
Suburgatory aired from 2011-2014 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 Levy said she's not sure if Suburgatory would work today. “I don't want to see old Tessa Altman,” she told a journalist (Levy turned 29 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 Suburgatory movie?
In a recent interview, Malin Akerman (who played Alex) said she can't imagine a Suburgatory 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 Lindsey Shaw (who played June in 2014) 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 Suburgatory movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Suburgatory film, Jane Levy stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Suburgatory reboot?
Recasting Suburgatory 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 Suburgatory reunion, a Suburgatory movie, or a Suburgatory reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
