‘Ugly Betty’ Cast to Reunite During Special Reunion at ATX Festival
If you're one of the many passionate viewers who were heartbroken over ABC's cancellation of Ugly Betty in 2010, get ready to renew your subscription to Mode: Your favorite fictional fashion magazine staff are coming back just in time for a special celebratory ten-year reunion this summer!
According to Entertainment Weekly, an Ugly Betty reunion is being organized by the entertainment publication to occur at the ATX Festival in Austin, Texas in June. Leading lady America Ferrera, who won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Betty back in 2007, is confirmed to attend the special event, telling EW, "I am so excited for the Ugly Betty cast to be reuniting at ATX. They are truly my family and we can’t wait to celebrate together."
The actress will be joined by fellow cast members Eric Mabius, Vanessa Williams, Becki Newton, Michael Urie, Ashley Jensen, Ana Ortiz, Tony Plana, Mark Indelicato, and Rebecca Romijn. The reunion will take place during the closing night of the festival, June 11, similar to how the Gilmore Girls reunion (also hosted and moderated by EW) capped off ATX last summer.
In any event, the timing couldn't be better, as TV reunions are definitely having a moment. Aside from the much-talked about Gilmore Girls revival, many other beloved and nostalgic shows have been celebrated over the past year or so, from the iconic cast of Friends reuniting to honor James Burrows, to Netflix's Full House spinoff, Fuller House, to the ten-year reunion of Disney Channel's High School Musical. (Damn, don't you feel old?)
Now, if only we can convince Netflix to revive the series altogether...
