“I feel the show was so specific to the characters in that time of their lives,” Foley said, recounting what he had previously told a reporter when asked the question of a “Felicity” reboot. “To do it again would be an injustice to the show we all made and all love.”
But then came the “Felicity” reunion on stage at Atx, featuring stars Keri Russell, Scott Speedman, Foley, Greg Grunberg, Tangi Miller, Amanda Foreman, Ian Gomez, Rob Benedict, and Amy Jo Johnson. The panel kicked off with a clip of the series’ four-year run on The WB (1998-2002), now streaming on Hulu.

The cast of The WB’s college-dorm drama Felicity, led by series star Keri Russell, reunited on Sunday at the Atx Festival to look back on the beloved series 20 years later. Naturally, the idea of a revival came up, and Scott Foley, who played dorky R.A. Noel Crane, was initially skeptical — but the reunion changed his mind.
“I would love to work with everyone again,” he told the panel, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “and get an opportunity to find out what happened to [everyone]… I’ve missed you guys!
“The network canceled us — kind of. And then they were like, ‘Just kidding,’ do a few more,'” titular star Keri Russell said in Austin, Tex. Sunday.
She added that series co-creators and executive producers J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves had agreed with the cast that Felicity had to graduate by the end of the show, so they planned for that moment to come in the 17th episode of the fourth season “regardless if they [were] going to give us .”
The series is described as "a love letter to the diverse musicality of New York which explores the universal journey of finding your authentic voice in your early 20s." The music for the series will come from Bareilles who previously collaborated with Nelson on the Tony Award–nominated musical Waitress.
Apple has already ordered a ten-episode first season. This seems like a great project for everyone involved, including Abrams who got his big break with the series Felicity. Judging by what we know, it seems like there are may be some similarities between Felicity and Little Voices.
Abrams has got a ton of other projects in
Described as a “reimagining” of the mid-1980s anthology series from Steven Spielberg (who will serve as an executive producer alongside Horowitz and Kitsis), the new Amazing Stories promises to “transport the audience to worlds of wonder through the lens of today’s most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers.”
“Kitsowitz” thus succeed Bryan Fuller, who in February stepped down as showrunner due to “creative differences.” (The man behind TV’s Hannibal reportedly wanted a darker,
Kitsis and Horowitz fill the void left by Bryan Fuller and Hart Hanson, both of whom departed the project in February. They’ll serve as executive producers and showrunners on the show, which is also executive produced by Spielberg and Amblin Television’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
Kitsis and Horowitz recently extended their overall deal with ABC Studios by four more years, keeping them there through 2022. But the duo will be on loan to Apple in order to do “Amazing Stories,” which comes from Universal TV and Amblin TV.

Can you all believe it was Anatoly that ended up betraying Diaz? It's interesting to see how the tables have turned for The Dragon. Initially, it was Oliver who got betrayed by everyone on his team, one by one.
Although I'm not going to pretend like Dinah, Curtis, and Rene leaving the team was a big heartbreak, watching Oliver become isolated from everyone one by one was sad to watch by principle.
Oliver used to believe that he had to work alone for various reasons, such as safety, trust, etc. So, to watch all of his initial fears come to fruition with team Arrow seemed a bit deja vu-ey, especially after one of his biggest fears -- Laurel's
