Keri Russell Plays Coy on the Possibility of a ‘Felicity’ Reboot
Could another nostalgic reboot be in the works? Just days after the announcement that the cast of Felicity would convene onstage at the 2018 ATX Television Festival this summer, the show’s star Keri Russell addressed the possibility of a revival of the show.
Russell, along with her Americans costar and off-screen partner Matthew Rhys, appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where a caller asked about the panel — and whether it signaled more to come. Before Russell could answer, Rhys jumped in with a little quip.
“Tell them about the feature film you’re not supposed to talk about,” he teased her. Was he joking? Or actually trying to prod his costar into a confession? (We’re betting on the former, but keep hope alive!)
“I can tell you that we’re going, and…that’s it,” Russell said, half-smirking at Rhys’ comment.
ATX, along with Entertainment Weekly and Hulu, announced the panel — featuring stars Keri Russell, Scott Speedman, Tangi Miller, Amanda Foreman, Amy Jo Johnson, Ian Gomez, and director/producer Lawrence Trilling — in celebration of the hit WB drama’s 20th anniversary. ATX is known for hosting cast reunions on the stages of its festival, and even precipitated the Gilmore Girls Netflix reboot after the show’s 15th anniversary reunion in 2015.
Reboots continue to be huge hits not only with viewers (ABC’s Roseanne redux has set ratings records in its first two weeks), but often, in the case of Roseanne, NBC’s Will & Grace, and Netflix’s Queer Eye, with critics, too. So far there’s no concrete evidence that new Felicity episodes could be on the way, but that doesn’t mean we’re not holding our breath anyway.
The 2018 ATX Television Festival takes place June 7 to 10 in Austin, Texas.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
