UPDATE 04/12/2021 : This story seems to be false. (read more)
Can you believe it's been 14 years since Victoria first aired?! (14 years, to be exact.)
Why in the world did Victoria end?
When Victoria came to an end after 1 year in August 2008, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Jeronimo Ernesto Acosta (Mauricio Ochmann) and Victoria Santiesteban de Mendoza (Victoria Ruffo). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Victoria reunion disappoint people?
Victoria aired from 2007-2008 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 Ochmann said he's not sure if Victoria would work today. “I don't want to see old Jeronimo Ernesto Acosta,” he told a journalist (Ochmann turned 44 in November). “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 Victoria movie?
In a recent interview, Mauricio Ochmann said he can't imagine a Victoria 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 Victoria Ruffo 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 Victoria movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
What about a Victoria reboot?
Recasting Victoria 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 Victoria reunion, a Victoria movie, or a Victoria reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
