What’s next for Galavant? Recently, some of the cast and creators spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the future of the cancelled ABC series.
As we reported earlier, ABC cancelled the musical comedy after two seasons. Since, fans have launched the campaign #MoreGalavant to save the series on another network, and the show responded with a “Thank You” dance video that features the cast and the series’ celebrity fans.
When asked where Galavant could move to, series EP Chris Koch said Hulu “makes sense”:
Hulu makes sense because I think ABC has some stake in it. Karen said that there might be some Netflix talk though too.”
Showrunner John Hoberg said Netflix could also work:
I think it would work incredibly well for the show. It’s such a binge-watch show. A lot of the fans watched it on iTunes or recorded it. It’s definitely written to be episodic and actually stopped doing recaps at the beginning of episodes and just trusted audiences that they were following along. Having the ability to watch episodes back-to-back would work well for the whole system of Galavant.”
Hoberg also addressed the recent news about a possible Galavant stage musical:
Kat [Likkel, EP and writer] and I were just in New York hanging out with some people. The best way I can explain it is that this show can get under your skin and just won’t let you quit it. [laughs] I can’t really give specifics but I do know that people just don’t want it to go away. Truthfully, I think it would make an incredible stage play. There is already amazing music that we can expand upon. The hard part would be keeping the show under two hours.”
The creators discussed what would happen to lead Joshua Sasse, who was recently cast in a new CW series:
I think it would be great to have Josh involved, but if we had to eliminate or change his character we have our ways we’ve talked about. It’s a magical world where anything can happen.
I know we’ve talked about that Galavant is the concept of the show, not really a person. It’s a send up of Game of Thrones.
It’s an incredible ensemble, and that’s the keyword we’ve imagined from the beginning. It’s multiple storylines coming together that deal with love and revenge.”
In the meantime, they said fans should keep talking about the show on social media:
Well, I’ll be bringing all the petitions to [creator and executive producer] Dan Fogelman’s house to start making a game plan. The more traction we get online and social media, the better.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Galavant? Do you want the show to continue?
