I'll believe it when I see it. Although I hope it happens and the side of the fandom holding on to and bragging about secret recordings can finally p!** off. (I normally don't like to get mean but that whole situation is so disgusting.)

. When we think that this program is dead, it returns from the ashes and makes many fans excited about the future of this song and this becomes painful because it's already been 15 years, it seems like a ghost that will always haunt us.
. I really want Amy to release the demo version, even if it's on YouTube, she would stop all this nonsense that this program has been doing and put an end to all the exclusives that exist. (We know Amy and we know she will never do that)

Some tea new about this:
Basically the new producer has said new stuff in a new youtube comment and what I feel is the most important thing. First, they are looking for a TV channel to broadcast this and second they have to renew all the right to use the songs, so let's pack up and not wait anything from this lol.
This basically means that Concord Records or Amy Lee Music (idk who owns the rights) have to sell rights to use Your Love and that it's kinda funny.

After reading the YouTube comment, I actually have more faith that this MIGHT see the light of day.
The guy took the initiative to get and upscale the footage and understands what he's doing in terms of financing the project, whether it be through shopping the show around or gaining funding through private investors.
What he's already done has probably cost him money and I would guess his investments and efforts weren't made with the expectation to shelve the show.
It sounds like he is passionate about trying to make this collection of episodes available and I wish him the best of luck with minimal harassment regarding Amy's episode.

Getting rights to music is a lot easier than you think. It can be expensive, but not terribly hard. I'm guessing he needs mechanical licenses (trying to remember from music college). You wouldn't have to contact every artist from the show. Most of the time you just reach out to good ol Harry Fox who helps pull that all together.
The guy trying to reboot this seemed to have already priced out the licensing costs and I'm guessing just needs a way to cover the costs either through a deal with a broadcaster who can help cough up some money or from private investors which is an option he's said he's scoping out.
I'm not by any means saying to get your hopes up, but this guy seems kinda legit. I say, let's see what he can do.
