Seth Rogen adamantly rejects the idea of ​​a Freaks and Geeks reboot

Seth Rogen adamantly rejects the idea of ​​a Freaks and Geeks reboot

The actor did not hesitate to cut short the potential return of this 90’s series which launched his career.

A comeback from freaks and geeks ? It definitely needs to be crossed out. During an interview for People, Seth Rogen issued a rather radical opinion on the potentiality of a revival of freaks and geeks : he is against. The actor addressed the recent trend of all these reboots that continue to emerge and shared his feelings without restraint. According to him, the original actors would agree with him and probably wouldn’t want to revisit the shortened NBC series either.

I don’t think anyone would go“, Rogen said. “It’s so rare to do something in your career that is purely considered accomplished. I’ve had enough experience now to know not to mess with it, let it be a good show and not touch it, just let it exist.”

Signed Paul Feig And Judd Apatow, freaks and geeks aired from 1999 to 2000 before being canceled after just one season. She was following Lindsay Weir’s story (Linda Caredellini), a teenage girl trying to fit in with her high school rebels—a group made up of Rogen, James Franco, Jason Segel And Busy Phillips. Meanwhile, his younger brother Sam (John Francis Daley) adapts to the first year with his marginalized friends (Martin Starr And Sam Levine), who form a band of geeks.

Towards a return of Freaks and Geeks, Judd Apatow’s series?

Executive producer and screenwriter Judd Apatow had revealed in 2021 to Collider that MTV had offered to pick up the series after it was canceled in order to continue the story, but with a “much lower budget“. The team of freaks and geekss had refused, however, not wishing to produce a sequel of poor quality.

The showrunner Paul Feig added the same year:There are so many moments where I’m like, ‘Wow, we got away with those 18 episodes,’ and I’m sure we would have made some more great episodes, another wonderful season. But at the same time it’s set in stone now and there’s something lovely about it.”

What is certain is that today the climate is not conducive to a reunion of the cast around the series. In 2018, accusations of sexual harassment against the actor Franco had surfaced. Even her co-star in freaks and geeks, Busy Phillips, had confided in the violent behavior of the actor towards him. Following these revelations, Seth Rogen so far remained very close to Franco had announced a formal separation with the actor in terms of future creative partnerships.
