Can you believe it's been 37 years since Webster first aired?! (37 years, 2 months, 16 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Webster end?
When Webster came to an end after 6 years in March 1989, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Katherine Calder (Susan Clark). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Webster reunion disappoint people?
Webster aired from 1983-1989 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 Clark said she's not sure if Webster would work today. “I don't want to see old Katherine Calder,” she told a journalist (Clark turned 80 in March). “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 Webster movie?
In a recent interview, Susan Clark said she can't imagine a Webster reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
What about a Webster reboot?
Recasting Webster 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 Webster reunion, a Webster movie, or a Webster reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
