Can you believe it's been 8 years since Witches of East End first aired?! (8 years, 21 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Witches of East End end?
When Witches of East End came to an end after 1 year in October 2014, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Freya Beauchamp (Jenna Dewan), Joanna Beauchamp (Julia Ormond), Wendy Beauchamp (Mädchen Amick) and Ingrid Beauchamp (Rachel Boston). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Witches of East End reunion disappoint people?
Witches of East End aired from 2013-2014 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 Boston said she's not sure if Witches of East End would work today. “I don't want to see old Ingrid Beauchamp,” she told a journalist (Boston turned 39 in May). “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 Witches of East End movie?
In a recent interview, Eric Winter (who played Dash Gardiner) said he can't imagine a Witches of East End 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 Jenna Dewan 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 Witches of East End movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Witches of East End film, Julia Ormond stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Witches of East End reboot?
Recasting Witches of East End 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 Witches of East End reunion, a Witches of East End movie, or a Witches of East End reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
