A new Twilight series is rumoured, and fans are eager to know if their favourite actors will reprise their roles.

In this age of nostalgia and legacy sequels, audiences crave reunions with beloved characters or fresh perspectives on them. The buzz around Amazon's The Lord of the Rings and HBO Max's Harry Potter series is a testament to that.

It was only a matter of time before Twilight made a comeback, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate Television is making it happen.

Since its debut in 2008, the Twilight franchise has captivated millions of dedicated fans. They couldn't resist the story of average teenager Bella Swan, torn between two romantic interests: vampire Edward Cullen and werewolf Jacob Black. With its timeless themes, undeniable chemistry between the actors, and unwavering escapism, the franchise remained a pop culture phenomenon, gaining a new wave of fans during the COVID pandemic.

Now, with rumours of a new Twilight series in development at Lionsgate, fans are curious whether the stars of the hit franchise would be open to reprising their roles. The franchise catapulted Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner to fame, but over a decade since the last instalment, their careers have evolved significantly. Fortunately, at least one Twilight star is ready to make a comeback.

Last year, E! News asked Taylor Lautner if he would consider reprising his role as fan-favourite werewolf Jacob Black. His response delighted fans.

'I would never say no to that,' the actor said.

Lautner added that Jacob is a likeable, loyal character, and it would be a pleasure to revisit him to see if he's living a happy life: a sentiment that fans would surely echo.

Since the rumoured series is in the early stages of development and details are scarce, it's unclear whether the show will be a revival or a remake. However, long-time franchise fans are undoubtedly hoping to catch up with their beloved characters rather than adjust to new faces.
