Can you believe it's been 57 years since the Saint first aired?! (57 years, 7 months, 28 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Saint end?
When the Saint came to an end after 7 years in February 1969, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Simon Templar (Roger Moore). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
The Saint without Simon Templar?
After the tragic passing of Roger Moore in 2017 how are the writers going to handle the absence of Simon Templar. It seems pretty hard to imagine. “The right thing to do for the show, at least at this point, is to have that character pass,” a source close to the production says.
Would a Saint reunion disappoint people?
The Saint aired from 1962-1969 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.
Still hoping for a Saint movie?
What about a Saint reboot?
Recasting the Saint 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.
