Way Too Fucking Soon: The Cast of 'Angie Tribeca' Just Came Together For
An Incredibly Emotional Reunion
Sitcom cast members from shows like Full House, The Fresh Prince Of Bel
Air, and Boy Meets World have reunited on TV years later to rapturous
reactions from fans, but recently, a group of actors tried to cash their
nostalgia chips in way, way too soon:
The cast of Angie Tribeca just came together for an incredibly emotional
The show got cancelled what, a few months ago? This is humiliating for
The Angie Tribeca cast got together on The Tonight Show With Jimmy
Fallon to spend 20 tearful minutes reminiscing and telling stories about
their time working on the police procedural, which aired for four brief
seasons on TBS between 2016 and 2019.
The reunion began when Jimmy brought out stars Rashida Jones, Hayes
MacArthur, Deon Cole, and the rest of the cast one by one as their
fellow cast members stood with tears in their eyes and their hands over
their open mouths, rushing to embrace one another as they could be heard
whispering, "What’s up, you old joker?" and, “It’s been too long,”
acting like old friends reuniting for the first time in decades instead
of former coworkers who just saw each other in May of this year on the
set a TV show that most of the audience members probably didn't even
realize was off the air yet.
Jimmy then surprised the group with a photo from the show's first day of
shooting a mere three years before, at which the cast members all
gasped, some of them doubling over in laughter as they cracked jokes
about everyone's younger looks -- despite the fact that a casual
observer probably couldn't have told the difference between them at the
current day versus in the picture.
Good God. What a painful spectacle.
As the segment went on, Fallon read responses from the Twitter hashtag
#MyAngieTribeca, where fewer than 15 viewers wrote in about memories
they had of the show, most of which were lukewarm statements like,
“My friend showed me Angie Tribeca back in 2017,” and, “I think they had
Aaron Carter on an episode at some point last year.”
In the climax of the segment, Jere Burns even broke down crying at the
tepid responses, muttering to himself, "It was a different time... we
were so innocent..."
The cast members were all moved to tears and assured one another that
they would never let this much time pass before getting the Angie
Tribeca gang together again, all while the people in the Tonight Show
studio audience apathetically looked at their phones and tried to figure
out when they could leave.
Yikes. This was truly an uncomfortable display. For a reunion this
over-the-top, the Angie Tribeca cast definitely should have waited
another five years at the absolute minimum.
Let's hope we don't have to watch another embarrassing spectacle like
this one for a good long time.
