Can you believe it's been 53 years since the Invaders first aired?! (53 years, 10 months, 17 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Invaders end?
When the Invaders came to an end after 2 years in March 1968, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to David Vincent (Roy Thinnes). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Invaders reunion disappoint people?
The Invaders aired from 1967-1968 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 Thinnes said he's not sure if the Invaders would work today. “I don't want to see old David Vincent,” he told a journalist (Thinnes turned 82 in April). “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 Invaders movie?
In a recent interview, Roy Thinnes said he can't imagine a Invaders reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
What about a Invaders reboot?
Recasting the Invaders 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 Invaders reunion, a Invaders movie, or a Invaders reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
