Switched At Birth ended its five season run on Tuesday, but could the cancelled Freeform drama resurrect in future years? Series creator Lizzy Weiss believes a revival is certainly possible, “in 10 years,” and already has some ideas, per THR:
If in 10 years, it is a trend, and the network or some network or all of us are interested, of course. We even joke about it now. It would be fun to revisit who everyone’s going to be in 10 years; Bay and Daphne as 35-year-olds or even 30-year-olds is just fun to think about.
Weiss also opened up about the scrapped series finale ending fans didn’t get to see:
It would have felt like a double ending. I feel like the emotion of the ending with the big wide aerial shot pulling back on the family and that song … the emotions sort of carried you, and then once we tried putting the tag on it, it stopped the emotions. And plus, it was a flashback to the hospital with the girls as newborns, and we cast 22-year-old actresses to play young Kathryn and young Regina, and it felt like a disappointment to not end on the people that the fans have spent five years with. I hope the network does release it for the fans just in a tweet or a YouTube link because it was cool, but it was something that we didn’t end up using.
