It was just last year that Judd Apatow spoke about the possibility of bringing back the hit television series Freaks and Geeks, although he seemed to state at the time that it was very unlikely that it would ever happen. Since then though, there has been so much fan support at the idea of having a Freaks and Geeks return, that some people feel it should be taken very seriously.
Hollywood superstar James Franco was among the stars to appear in Freaks and Geeks, which focused on the teenage lives of the characters, who have now all aged 15 years, making it difficult to know what they would do with the show. Well, James has admitted that, should somebody come up with a way to make a Freaks and Geeks revival work, he could be tempted to return.
Franco explained, "I mean, I don’t know what that would look like. Everybody’s kind of old. I think for the most part we’ve had these little reunions just for photo shoots over the years, and everybody seems to still really like each other and still have a great love for what we did on that show. And obviously I still work very closely with Seth [Rogen] all the time. So, if somebody came up with an idea that didn’t totally suck, I’m sure it's a possibility."
So, now all we need is somebody to come up with a great idea for a Freaks and Geeks return, and to then persuade James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini, and the rest of the gang to come back. It is not beyond the realms of possibility but we have to admit that we are not too optimistic.
