Peter Paige: Queer as Folk reboot could happen
There was a lot of talk about television reboots and revivals at the ATX Festival in Austin, Texas this year, but in particular that kept popping up was Queer as Folk. The cast and creators reunited at the festival for a panel, and they all said they were open to bringing the show back.
And according to star Peter Paige, it’s a real possibility. Paige met up with EW Radio and talked to Jessica Shaw about how he and the rest of the cast are all interested.
“We were all serious,” he said. “We’d love to do it. It’s not our choice, you know what I mean? There are other powers that be that control that material and have to put up the millions and millions of dollars and have to decide if that’s the business model they want to engage in at any given time.”
Paige said that while it may be tough to juggle a possible reboot while he’s producing The Fosters, he’d be happy to carve out some time and make it happen.
“It’s amazing to think 10 years after we ended, the show is still being found and still circulating around the world,” he said. “It’s just incredible.”
