Double funeral in ‘Family’ causes a sea of ​​tears: there was not much sadness on TV and behind the scenes | television

televisionBeautiful farewell words, lots of hugs and a sea of ​​tears. On Wednesday, the viewer said goodbye to Peter and his mother, Mary Rose, in an emotional episode of “Family.” The two pioneers were already around 30 years ago at the start of the series, but they died quite unexpectedly last week in a staggering house fire. The characters of Gunther Levi and Martine Jonckheere are buried together. There wasn’t much sadness in the soap. On TV, but also behind the scenes.

Every member of the Van den Bosch family had to pay the last tribute. Even Bart (Chris Van Tonglen) briefly returned from Dubai for a double funeral. The funeral ends with an impressive period, to the satisfaction of the actors. Gunter Levy called the decision to leave his character “unfortunate” and “a mistake by the screenwriters”. Martin Junckery also had reservations about this plot twist. Several colleagues also expressed their discontent on social media. Joe Haines (Nico) even called these officials “idiots”. Fans also rioted. The fan site “We demand that Gunter Levi and Martin Jonquery stay with the family” gained more than 10,000 followers on Facebook and even organized a petition that has been signed by several thousand. The management of VTM even greeted the die-hards. It should be clear: Rarely has a story caused so much uproar.

General new start

Life goes on for the ‘family’ makers. They’ve tweaked the opening credits and so they’ve already given away a little of what viewers can expect in the near future. The deceased Peter and Mary Rose disappeared from the picture and gave way to two new faces of the year. Of course, this choice can only mean that the share of these two in the chain will become more important. In the new year, Matthias (Peter Polkin) gets another companion by his side, because there is no longer Peter, his business partner at the Copro brewery, but his mistress: Vanessa. Thus, the character of Karen Damen becomes a guard. Louise (Charlotte Siben) is the other character who first appears in the opening images. The blonde can be seen alongside Raven (Aaron Plummert). This means that this relationship will not only last, but also gain significance.

“Never say ‘never,'” replies Hans Rogen, producer of Thuis, “but we don’t now have any specific plans for them.” the family “. Why should this be a defect? Just look at Janine Bishops. He played Jenny in “Thuis” for over 20 years, but then transitioned to “Family” as Brigitte without any problems. A good actor must have the strength to shape any role in any series.”
