I knew last week that the show Reunion had been canceled, but I was hoping they may find a way to wrap it up. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it followed a group of six friends over 20 years. In 2005, one of them is killed the night of their 20 year high school reunion. The show then would cover one year of their lives each week. So, week 1 was 1986, week 2 was 1987 and so on.
Well, not TV Guide is reporting that we will not get any sort of conclusion:
Reunion fans looking for some semblance of closure from Fox’s recently axed drama might want to look elsewhere. Despite a week of brainstorming, show execs have concluded it simply is not possible to wrap up the central murder mystery nine “years” sooner than planned. Executive producer Jon Feldman explains in a statement, “Because the events of Samantha’s murder are partially reliant on characters we haven’t yet met â€” and events we haven’t yet seen â€” there is no way to solve the mystery of her murder without being able to complete the full arc of our story through the present day. I greatly regret that this question along with many others that the series has posed will remain unsolved, and I am deeply grateful for the support of viewers who share this regret.” Reunion’s 13th and now final episode airs Feb. 2.
Could someone please explain to me why I should watch the remaining episodes if I Know I will never hear a conclusion?
