Can you believe it's been 21 years since Undeclared first aired?! (21 years, 8 months, 5 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Undeclared end?
When Undeclared came to an end after 1 year in March 2002, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Hillary (Amy Poehler), Eric (Jason Segel), Steven Karp (Jay Baruchel) and Ron Garner (Seth Rogen). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Undeclared reunion disappoint people?
Undeclared aired from 2001-2002 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 Poehler said she's not sure if Undeclared would work today. “I don't want to see old Hillary,” she told a journalist (Poehler turned 51 in September). “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 an Undeclared movie?
In a recent interview, David Krumholtz (who played Greg) said he can't imagine an Undeclared 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 Amy Poehler has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Undeclared movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Undeclared film, Jay Baruchel stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an Undeclared reboot?
Recasting Undeclared 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 an Undeclared reunion, an Undeclared movie, or an Undeclared reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
