A Freeform rep confirms that the network has passed on the revival, but declined to say why. Meanwhile, it’s unclear if series creator Sean Smith (who has released a statement lamenting the network’s decision) and fellow EPs Shawn Piller and Lloyd Segan intend to shop the project around.

Following the show’s series finale in 2011, Smith told TVLine that he intentionally left things relatively open-ended so “I could imagine where they were going… For me, keeping it open allowed me to have the imagination to think of where I want them to go, as much as I want the audience to do the same.”

Bummer, I was really looking forward to this movie :(
I liked Greek, but I’m not devastated by this news. All I want is to see Spencer Grammer and Dilshad Vadsaria in more things.
i hope netflix picks it up. i loved greek. i was really looking forward to this reunion movie
This sucks!! I was looking forward to seeing where all these characters ended up and actually just this morning I thought about the movie revival and see what was happening with it. :(
Sucks Freeform did this! I was really looking to the TV movie. Hope they find a new home for the TV movie on a streaming service.

I was really looking forward to this! I love the tv show and seeing the characters again would have been awesome.
