Why in the world did Touch end?

When Touch came to an end after 2 years in May 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.

Would a Touch reunion disappoint people?

Touch aired from 2012-2013 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 Sutherland said he's not sure if Touch would work today. “I don't want to see old Martin Bohm,” he told a journalist (Sutherland turned 54 in December). “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 Touch movie?

In a recent interview, Maria Bello (who played Lucy Robbins) said she can't imagine a Touch 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 David Mazouz (who played Jake Bohm between 2012 and 2013) 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 Touch movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”

On the subject of whether there could be a Touch film, Danny Glover stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”

What about a Touch reboot?

Recasting Touch 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 Touch reunion, a Touch movie, or a Touch reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
