Reunions and reboots are such a big thing at the moment - it seems every second television show or movie series is getting a remake or continuation. At the end of last week, it was revealed that Channel Nine are attempting to reboot McLeod's Daughters, nearly ten years after the finale. And it got me thinking about some of the TV shows that I'd love to see a reunion episode or episodes from.
The five series that I've picked are ones that I can definitely see having at least a reunion episode, and it would honestly be amazing to see all the cast together again.
Starting off with one of the most obvious TV shows in need of a reunion episode. I'm sure we all want to see what our six favourite people are up to thirteen years later. Who doesn't want to see Monica and Chandler dealing with teenage twins, or Ross and Rachel dealing with a teenage Emma. Have Phoebe and Mike got that big von Trapp family? And has Joey finally settled down? Plus, Ben would be 22. Twenty-freaking-two!
All I want is one hour to see what thirteen years has meant for these six friends - is that too much to ask?
Charmed is probably my all-time favourite TV show. Apart from being an awesome show, it also has some really great memories tied to it - holidays spent at my grandparents with my cousins falling in love with the show.
Everything about this show was amazing - the characters, the magic, the demons and the romance. What I wouldn't give to see all these characters together again, and see the kids taking over the role of the Charmed Ones, but also seeing the sisters kicking butt eleven years later. And with all the magic, it would be great to see Prue again (and Penny and Patty)! As long as it's not that stupid CW reboot that's been announced, I'll be all over it!
McLeod's Daughters has got to be my all-time favourite Australian television series. I remember watching it with my parents as a child, and I loved watching it every week (although, after Claire was killed off, I stopped watching until I was a teen). It was such a fantastic show portraying the strength of women in a male-dominated industry. I so wanted to be a part of life on 'Drover's Run', riding horses with the girls and exploring what the property had to offer.
I'd love to see what these awesome characters are up to almost ten years later. What life on Drover's Run is like today - whether they've finally stopped the farm from going into debt every other week. I'd love to see Xander and Charlotte as teenagers, giving Stevie a hard time. I'd love to see Tess, Nick and Claire return to the farm (even just for a visit). I want to see Jodi, Matt and Kate also back on Drover's. I just want to see these characters again! [Hopefully Channel Nine can get their reboot happening!]
I can't believe it's been TEN years since The O.C. finished! I remember watching it when it originally aired here in Australia, but it wasn't until I got the DVDs a few years later that I really fell in love with it. I'm still not over the face that Marissa was killed (why couldn't she just go live with her dad on that boat?!). And with all the time-jumps in the final episode, I'd love one final chance to see what the characters are doing ten years on.
Are Summer & Seth still together? Have they started a family yet? Did Ryan and Taylor finally get their shit together and get back together? What are Sandy, Kirsten and Sophie doing? How's Julie, Kaitlin and Cooper? And what happened with the kid that Ryan helped in the finale? I need to know!!
The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air
This is one of my more recent favourites, since I was only one when the show finished airing. But in the past few years, I've binged-watch the show a few times and it's fast become one of my favourites. It's been over twenty years - I think we deserve a reunion!
Will Smith has always seemed the be up for a reunion, and although, sadly, James Avery passed away in 2013, and it wouldn't be the same without him, I think a reunion would be amazing. What's Will doing twenty years later? Does Hilary still have her talk show (is she the new Oprah)? Does Carlton still do the 'Carlton dance'? Is Ashley a famous actress now? What's little Nicky up to? And how's Vivian going? Come on, just give us a little reunion, please!
There are definitely other series that I want to see a reunion for, but these are my top five. If there's every a reunion of any of these shows, you can be sure that I'll be jumping up and down with excitement.
What's some television shows that you want to see a reunion for?
See You Soon!
