It was one of the most popular shows of the 80s and 90s. Murder, She Wrote portrayed Jessica Fletcher, who was a mystery novelist that secretly worked part-time as a crime detective. Between 1984 and 1996 about 264 episodes aired on television entertaining millions of people.
While she respects and admires Octavia Spencer, as a fellow thespian with acting chops, Dame Angela Lansbury said that it would be unfair to push her into the role of Jessica Fletcher. According to Lansbury, although Spencer was a very talented actress, she would not be able to do full justice to the spirit of the original.
Furthermore, Angela spoke of how the idea of a reboot would not only mar the memory of the good old days it would not be able to bring back the special features that appeared the first time around. Although the producers have momentarily dumped the project, a future remake may lie in the cards.
