America Ferrera, who starred on ABC’s “Ugly Betty” from 2006-2010, appears to be pushing for a comeback for the series.
The New York Post reports that Ferrera got the ball rolling during an “Ugly Betty” reunion Saturday at the ATX TV Festival, when she joked, “Hulu’s going to pick us up for a two-hour special.”
“The joke quickly turned into a real idea when Ferrera told the audience to take out their phones and tweet at Hulu to bring the show back using the hashtag #HuluBringBackUglyBetty,” the Post reports, noting: “It only took a few minutes before the hashtag started trending on the social media site.”
Cast members and show creator Silvio Horta all talked about how they saw their characters and the show evolving in a potential reboot. After Horta hinted that an “Ugly Betty” movie would have to include the whole cast, Ferrara noted: “I mean it took 20 minutes for everyone to say yes to my email to be at ATX, I think they’re going to be at the reunion movie.”
