Doubtful given it wasn't what people wanted. they wanted a real reboot. I can't count how many comments from people I saw on FB, twitter etc. about why this wasn't a real reboot and WTF was going on

 

It followed pretty much the pattern of other reboots that landed on networks, the only difference that Fox didn't own this one and had no secondary source of income from it unlike let's say Will & Grace on NBC with Hulu. It was more like the Murphy Brown reboot in that sense that there was little incentive for Fox to keep it on as they wouldn't be a part of the other profit it generates.

 

I really think a real reboot would've gone the same way when put on Fox. I think CBS All Access would've been a decent option for it as it rated well in the 35-50 age bracket which would probably be "young" and appealing to them, lol.

I wonder what Tori will do next in her never-ending struggle for relevancy.  Hallmark movies, perhaps?

Then those people cant read. Every article and even video interview said they were playing fictionalized versions of themselves as they try to do a reboot. It was stated and restated. So I dont have symphany for fans who cried over that.

Maybe they didn't grasp it because the premise was stupid beyond comprehension.

Well for me , each episode actually got better. I wish they had a season 2 but its not meant to be

 Ian, Shannen, Gabrielle, Brian & Christine were the highlights for me

They shoulda grabbed the opportunity to do a continuation of the show. Good payday for something destined to fail, though.

The idea of a CW reboot was smart, but I wish it was written by people who liked the original. As bad as nuDynasty has gotten, I appreciate that the writers clearly know the original and throw in lots of easter eggs when they really don't have to. CW totally botched it. Mentioning Hannah Zuckerman but not actually including her or Andrea in the cast? Stupid. Bringing back Kelly was smart, but the handling of Dylan was horrible. The new Walsh family also sucked and they did a horrible job with Brenda's return. Still, I understand why they made it. 

 

Now with a continuation, especially on CBS All Access, you can't tell me it wouldn't have gone on for years. It literally could've been the Knots Landing/Desperate Housewives of this generation. Those characters were ripe for a reboot and considering Tori really needs money, she's stupid for not pursuing one. I also feel like Melrose Place is a series I'd consider revisiting. Maybe not set at the complex due to their ages, but something in LA with those characters. I just feel like because these are soaps people don't take those ideas seriously, but they're missing out.
