UPDATE 25/01/2021 : This story seems to be false. (read more)
Can you believe it's been 6 years since the Knick first aired?! (6 years, 5 months, 17 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Knick end?
When the Knick came to an end after 2 years in December 2015, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Dr. Algernon C. Edwards (André Holland), Dr. John W. Thackery (Clive Owen), Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson) and Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Knick reunion disappoint people?
The Knick aired from 2014-2015 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 Hewson said she's not sure if the Knick would work today. “I don't want to see old Lucy Elkins,” she told a journalist (Hewson turned 29 in July). “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 Knick movie?
In a recent interview, Michael Angarano (who played Dr. Bertram Chickering, Jr.) said he can't imagine a Knick 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 Eric Johnson (who played Dr. Everett Gallinger) 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 Knick movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Knick film, André Holland stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Knick reboot?
Recasting the Knick 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 Knick reunion, a Knick movie, or a Knick reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
