The idea of a reunion has been up in the air for a while
The IMF’s Annual Comedy Celebration actually began in honor of Boyle. The event features comedy and music from top celebrities each year and has raised nearly $8 million for the Peter Boyle Research Fund through the event. Rosenthal initially shot down the idea of a reunion since some key characters were now gone, including Boyle, Roberts, and Sawyer Sweeten.
“I’ll never say never, but look, we lost three of our cast members, right?” Rosenthal tells CinemaBlend in 2018. “It’s never going to be the same again, it can’t be. Plus these shows usually aren’t the same again anyway. We did the show exactly the way we wanted to. If you love the show and love those characters, they’re still available, thankfully, in syndication. You can always visit your friends.”
