Can you believe it's been 11 years since the House Next Door first aired?! (11 years, 28 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the House Next Door end?
When the House Next Door came to an end after 1 year in January 2012, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Ignacia Conde (Catherine Siachoque), Gonzalo Ibáñez / Iñaki Mora / Roberto Acosta (Gabriel Porras), Pilar Arismendi / Raquel Arismendi (Maritza Rodríguez) and Havier Ruiz (Miguel Varoni). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a House Next Door reunion disappoint people?
The House Next Door aired from 2011-2012 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 Porras said he's not sure if the House Next Door would work today. “I don't want to see old Gonzalo Ibáñez / Iñaki Mora / Roberto Acosta,” he told a journalist (Porras turned 54 in February). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a House Next Door movie?
In a recent interview, Miguel Varoni said he can't imagine a House Next Door 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 Gabriel Porras 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 House Next Door movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a House Next Door film, Catherine Siachoque stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a House Next Door reboot?
Recasting the House Next Door 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 House Next Door reunion, a House Next Door movie, or a House Next Door reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
