Greek Revival Movie Reunion

Greek Creator Laments Freeform's Puzzling Decision to Scrap Reunion Movie: 'I'm Obviously Disappointed'

So why did Freeform scrap its planned Greek reunion movie? We tracked down the show’s top EP and, turns out, it’s all Greek to him.

On Thursday, TVLine broke the news that Freeform has quietly abandoned plans to produce a two-hour holiday-themed Greek revival. A network rep has yet to provide an explanation. And, as series creator Sean Smith tells us, he is similarly waiting for some clarification on the matter. 

“I delivered a script to Freeform in February that they seemed to love enough to want to move forward,” Smith explains. “We reached out to the cast. Then Freeform told me they didn’t have the money to make it this year… maybe we can next year. Then I heard from TVLine that it’s officially not moving forward. So I’m obviously disappointed but grateful for the time I got to spend with those characters again. I’m sorry I can’t share that work with the fans.”

It was back in early 2016 that Freeform first announced that it was developing Greek: The Reunion, a mini-revival that would’ve found the gang returning to Cypress-Rhodes University for their five-year reunion.

    This sucks…I was looking forward to this. Find another outlet for it!

    So no Greek reunion and they canceled Baby Daddy. Freeform is really on my last nerve now. At least they’re finally done with PLL.

  4. Shaun says:

    ouch,learning it from a news website is brutal.

    Why not try to crowdfund this? It worked for Veronica Mars.

    Greek was, in my opinion, the best thing that ABC Family ever produced. I’m disappointed enough to avoid the channel altogether.

  9. Wooster182 says:

    That’s really disappointing. Who owns the rights? Can we crowdfund?

    Hate to hear this. I loved Greek. I was really excited to get a proper ending. The series finale was a bit lackluster.

    Boo! This sucks! I’ve been look forward to this ever since they announced it last year. I can’t believe it. Any chance someone else like Netflix or Hulu might come to the rescue?
