'Liv & Maddie' star Jessica Marie Garcia on potential reboot: 'Maybe Willow and Joey would be married with some cute kids'
Jessica Marie Garcia, who played Willow on the show, sure seems to be game if a reboot becomes reality
‘Liv & Maddie,’ one of the most popular Disney Channel shows, starring Dove Cameron as the titular twins, has been off air since 2017. If it were up to the fans, though, the show would be going on beyond the fourth season which saw the Rooneys and their friends parting ways ahead of the summer.
The fact that reboots, spin-offs and remakes are the flavor of the season, however, gives us hope that ‘Liv & Maddie,’ too might enjoy this luxury. Jessica Marie Garcia, one of the recurring stars of the show, sure seems to be game if a reboot becomes reality. She revealed to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) her take on a reboot saying: “I would do it in a heartbeat, I would love to go back and work with that cast and crew again.”

Her enthusiasm and love for the show are evident when she tells us that she recently got married and she had her ‘Live & Maddie’ family surrounding her. “My bridal party was 99% made up of people I met through that show. Our creators John Beck and Ron Hart were our officiants and our bridesmaids and groomsmen were practically the entire cast,” adds Garcia, who has her own idea about what her character Willow would be up to ten years down the line.
She says, “I would love to do a movie or something in a few years and maybe ‘Willow’ and Joey Rooney would be married with some cute kids with glasses.” As fans of the show would remember, Willow and Joey Bragg’s character Joey had a short-lived relationship on the show, after which they decided to be just friends.
However, Willow was obsessively in love with Joey over the years – unrequited, though the feelings were. When Joey finally reciprocated her feelings, they became the power couple we know and love, “Jillow.” They decided to stay friends after a summer together, but surely there is a lot more to Jillow than was explored on ‘Liv & Maddie.’
I personally would love to watch a reboot focusing on Willow and Joey’s relationship, where they find their way back to each other and stick by each other through thick and thin. While Disney Channel has been revamping shows like ‘That’s So Raven’ with the 2017 ‘Raven’s Home,’ the possibility of a ‘Liv & Maddie’ comeback is quite plausible.
That being said, a more adult Freeform or Netflix revamp would be absolutely amazing as well.
