UGLY BETTY: America Ferrera Wants a Movie

America Ferrera Ugly Betty

America Ferrera wants to bring Ugly Betty back. In the last year, streaming services have given us reboots of beloved shows from our pasts like Full House and Gilmore Girls, and America Ferrera wants Ugly Betty to be a part of that comeback.

When Ferrera and the rest of the Ugly Betty cast reunited yesterday at the ATX Film Festival, she made it clear that none of them feel done with the show. Although ABC canceled the popular series after four seasons, Ferrera admitted yesterday that she “still doesn’t want to let this go.”

Hulu’s going to pick us up for a two-hour special,” she said. “That’s not true, but if you tweet it…Everybody here take out your phone. Hashtag: Betty Reboot. We need a hashtag and tweet it out and then we’re going to get Hulu to buy a two-hour special.”

Ferrera’s longing to return to her show and what feels like a family of costars is more than just sweet reminiscing. In today’s media culture it seems like a willing cast, a streaming service, and a great Twitter campaign are just about all you need to bring back any well-loved show. Who knows? Maybe Ferrera’s #BettyReboot dream will come a reality.
