Can you believe it's been 9 years since the Life We Lead first aired?! (9 years, 6 months, 16 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Life We Lead end?
When the Life We Lead came to an end after 1 year in March 2012, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Ana Fonseca (Fernanda Vasconcellos) and Manuela Fonseca Macedo (Marjorie Estiano). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Life We Lead reunion disappoint people?
The Life We Lead 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 Estiano said she's not sure if the Life We Lead would work today. “I don't want to see old Manuela Fonseca Macedo,” she told a journalist (Estiano turned 39 in March). “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 Life We Lead movie?
In a recent interview, Thiago Lacerda (who played Lúcio Pires) said he can't imagine a Life We Lead 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 Klebber Toledo (who played João) 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 Life We Lead movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Life We Lead film, Rafael Almeida stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Life We Lead reboot?
