Cole and Dylan Sprouse — along with costars Ashley Tisdale, Brenda Song, Debby Ryan and more — said goodbye to the fan-favorite series and its eventual spinoff in 2011. When it comes to getting the cast back together for a new iteration of the iconic show, both boys have turned down the idea of a reboot.
“I’m asked all the time if Dylan and I are going to do a Suite Life reboot, and I go, ‘No, absolutely not,'” Cole said during a January 2021 interview on the Drew Barrymore Show. “Reboots are a tricky thing, you know? The original shows, when they become successful, sit within this golden little plate of nostalgia, and when you modernize it and go back to it, it has the potential to really disenfranchise the original fan base. So it’s a very, very touchy thing.”
Months prior, in October 2020, Dylan agreed with his brother. “I don’t think that we will [bring the show back],” he told iHollywood TV. “There’s a lot of different reasons, but primarily because that was a chapter of both of our separate lives or together life that was just a role at the time. A lot of times you see these reboots happening and it’s kind of fan-service. I also just think that usually, they’re not as good and part of the nostalgia is gone.”
