Can you believe it's been 24 years since the Naked Truth first aired?! (24 years, 11 months, 1 day to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Naked Truth end?
When the Naked Truth came to an end after 3 years in May 1998, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Camilla Dane (Holland Taylor) and Nora Wilde (Téa Leoni). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Naked Truth reunion disappoint people?
The Naked Truth aired from 1995-1998 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 Taylor said she's not sure if the Naked Truth would work today. “I don't want to see old Camilla Dane,” she told a journalist (Taylor turned 77 in January). “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 Naked Truth movie?
In a recent interview, Amy Ryan (who played Chloe Banks) said she can't imagine a Naked Truth 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 Holland Taylor 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 Naked Truth movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Naked Truth film, Téa Leoni stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Naked Truth reboot?
Recasting the Naked Truth 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 Naked Truth reunion, a Naked Truth movie, or a Naked Truth reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
