Greek Revival Not Moving Forward

So much for giving it the old college try: Freeform has quietly abandoned plans to stage a mini-Greek revival, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Back in 2016, Freeform announced that it was developing Greek: The Reunion, a two-hour holiday movie that found the gang returning to Cypress-Rhodes University for their five-year reunion. 

A Freeform rep confirms that the network has passed on the revival, but declined to say why. Meanwhile, it’s unclear if series creator Sean Smith (who has released a statement lamenting the network’s decision) and fellow EPs Shawn Piller and Lloyd Segan intend to shop the project around. (Seems like it could be a good fit at Netflix, Amazon or Hulu, right?)

Greek premiered in 2007 and ran for four seasons and 74 episodes, before concluding in 2011. The cast included then-unknowns Spencer Grammer, Scott Michael Foster, Jake McDorman and Amber Stevens.

Following the show’s series finale in 2011, Smith told TVLine that he intentionally left things relatively open-ended so “I could imagine where they were going… For me, keeping it open allowed me to have the imagination to think of where I want them to go, as much as I want the audience to do the same.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I liked Greek, but I’m not devastated by this news. All I want is to see Spencer Grammer and Dilshad Vadsaria in more things.

    I’m disappointed, but I had a feeling it was too good to be true. They gave the series enough episodes in the final season to wrap things up even if it wasn’t ideal.
