Will the Original ‘Twilight Saga’ Stars Reprise Their Roles? 

A handful of the original cast has spoken out about potentially reprising their roles, such as Peter Facinelli, who portrayed Cullen clan leader, Carlisle Cullen. 

“I love that character,” he told People in September 2020. “[He’s] so much fun to play, and that world is fun,” adding that he would reprise his role “in a heartbeat” if he were given the opportunity. “I poured a lot into that movie,” Peter added to the outlet. “When you give it over to an audience, you never know how they’re gonna respond, but it’s been a great response.”

“I think, honestly, there is so much backstory with all these characters too, that you could 100 percent do a series and not necessarily have to do a remake,” the “Twilight Effect” podcast host explained. “I think there’s still so much fascination behind, and around, these characters.”
