Did 'Arrested Development’s' Return Inspire a ‘Freaks and Geeks’ Reboot?
The return of ‘Arrested Development’ on Netflix has gotten Seth Rogen thinking about putting together a new season of ‘Freaks and Geeks’.
‘Freaks and Geeks’, the show that introduced Rogen, James Franco, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini, Busy Phillips, and many others to the world, lasted a very short while on television, but similar to ‘Arrested Development’, has since amassed a huge cult following through DVD sales and Netflix.
Rogen explains that he would love to arrange for a new season of ‘Freaks and Geek’s’, which ended in 2000, but would need all of the original stars involved. Not just the stars in the front of the camera, but those behind the scenes as well- specifically series creator, Paul Feig, and executive producer, Judd Apatow.
"If they were able to do that, I would be very open to doing more Freaks and Geeks," Rogen told the Canadian Press on Monday prior to a special screening of ‘This is the End’ in Toronto.
"I bet a lot of the people would do it," he continued.
Feig may not be on board, unfortunately. While speaking to Digital Spy last week, he explained that there are “too many pitfalls” to bringing the series back.
"I've never seen a good reunion — in real life or on film," Feig said. "There's always something that's wrong. Half the time, you're just thinking, 'Oh, look how old they are.'"
While we wait for Feig to change his mind, Rogen and screenwriting partner, Evan Goldberg, are promoting the apocalypse-themed comedy, ‘This is The End’, opening June 12th.
