TV series reboots are trending. With “Heroes,” “The X-Files” and “Full House” already in production, could “Sweet Valley High” be the next? According to the show’s former star, Brittany Daniel, it is possible.
Speaking with the press during the movie premiere o “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” Brittany said that she’s scheduled to discuss with Francine Pascal in the coming weeks, according to Entertainment Weekly. Pascal is the writer and creator of the “Sweet Valley High” book series that the TV show was based on.
“Sweet Valley High” the TV show aired for four seasons, from 1994 to 1997. Brittany played Jessica Wakefield, while her twin sister Cynthia played Elizabeth.
“I remember when I booked Sweet Valley High with my twin sister. Because we were about to graduate high school and we found out ‘Oh my God, we get to move to L.A. a week after high school,’ so that was a big moment for us,” Brittany said via US Magazine.
She also said that the series means so much to her and her sister, “I and we want to bring that to our kids and the next generation.”
Almost 20 years after the show ended, Brittany has continued with acting, while her twin sister has retired. But Cynthia said, via Hollywood Life, that she’s still amazed people remember the show. “For me, personally, because I’m not in the business so much anymore, I’m shocked that people still remember it. It’s amazing how many people still come up to us about it,” she said.
The premise of the reboot hasn’t been detailed yet, but if fans of the series must know, Pascal released a follow up to the “Sweet Valley Stories” back in 2011 called “Sweet Valley Confidential,” which picks up 10 years after the last book series.
