Why it would be a bad idea for Greg Berlanti to bring back Everwood
Berlanti said yesterday that there is "a real shot" that Everwood could return, but the beloved WB series had a perfect, fulfilling ending in 2006. So what's the point of bringing it back today? Also, an Everwood revival would likely have trouble reuniting the original cast, especially with Chris Pratt -- who couldn't attend the 15th anniversary reunion last year -- having a busy movie career and his ex-girlfriend, Emily VanCamp, starring on Fox's The Resident.

Greg Berlanti reacts to his 14-show record -- and whether he'd ever reboot Everwood
The uber-producer saw only one of his shows canceled (ABC's Deception) this season, while four were picked up over the past few days (CBS' God Friended Me and The Red Line, CW's All American and DC Universe's Doom Patrol). This allowed him to break a new record for on-air TV series that was previously set by Aaron Spelling and Jerry Bruckheimer. "My secret dream," says Berlanti, "is that other people that work with me get more credit for all the hard work that they do because they work just as hard and so I’m really proud to be a part of all of it, but I don’t feel like an author for that. I feel like I’m just on a really great team. That’s the truth." Once upon a time, Berlanti had only one show on the air, The WB's Everwood, which featured future stars Chris Pratt, Emily VanCamp and Sarah Drew. "Definitely of all of them, Everwood is the one that has a special song in my heart," he says. "I think it’s about schedules and finances and budget and if we can get a budget to a place, I think that there’s a real shot that that could come back. I think we just have to figure out what would be the best way to do it, but there’s no nothing firm in place yet."

Everwood turns 15: The WB drama was This Is Us before its time
The family drama premiered on Sept. 16, 2002, lasting four seasons. Created by Greg Berlanti before he became a mega-producer, it was the launchpad for such future stars as Chris Pratt and Emily VanCamp, who were siblings on screen and boyfriend and girlfriend in real life. Everwood was also a tearjerker that, despite its devoted fanbase, failed to make the leap to the newly created CW in 2006. PLUS: Everwood stars reunited to mark 15 years, and they swapped Chris Pratt stories.
