It seems like we’re getting treated to a lot of reboots lately… Full House, Gilmore Girls, 24, Prison Break… it’s all so exciting! All of this made me want to go searching to see if there are any others coming out in the near future. I was shocked! I guess I’d never really looked into this kinda stuff before, but wow, there are a lot of sequels out there! One that really stood out for me… a sequel coming out for the TV show Greek! Five years ago, the show ended after running for four seasons, and now they will be coming back for a reunion holiday movie. When the show stopped running, many of the main characters were graduating from college, so it will be cool to see what they’ve all been up to since school ended. From all the research I’ve done so far, it seems like there aren’t too many details available yet, but in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the creator of the show, Patrick Sean Smith, did share some things… apparently all the cast members are really excited about this project! This to me, sounds like good news! Also, he is currently working on the script, so we’ll hopefully hear more soon.
I don’t want to give away too much about the original show, in case any of you are still planning on watching it, but I will say a little.. Greek was a TV show that focused on the lives of college students in the Greek system, both sororities and fraternities. When I first heard about this, to be honest, I was not really all that intrigued, because this kind of stuff was never really my thing. But, once I gave in and tried out a few episodes, I realized that in a weird way, the show was about the exact opposite of what I had expected. Rusty, a so-called ‘nerd’ in high school, is determined to get into a fraternity once he gets into college, wanting to have some fun. He is convinced that he can do both geek and chic, as they say. Sadly, once his older sister Casey (Spencer Grammer… yes, Kelsey Grammer’s (Fraser) daughter!) finds out that Rusty wants to join the Greek system, that she is already a huge part of, she is not very happy.
Long story short… this show does a really good job at fighting stereotypes and clique-mentality. I mean, who doesn’t love a show about teens trying to find themselves? Add in some romance and drama, and what else could you ask for?
