Out with the old and in the new: 16 years since its first aired, the popular Taiwanese drama “Meteor Garden” is set to return to the small screen once again.

The upcoming reboot will air sometime next year. While the original series catapulted Jerry Yan, Vanness Wu, Vic Zhou, Ken Chu, and Barbie Hsu into superstardom, 4 new actors and a new leading lady will follow in their footsteps.

In addition to a magazine feature in Harper’s Bazaar China, a press conference was also held in Shanghai recently to announce the stars of the upcoming show, including the new F4 (Flower 4). Producer Angie Chai shared that the new “Meteor Garden” will be a fuller and flashier adaptation of the Japanese shojo comics. The 48-episode reboot also reportedly has overall budget of NTD 720 million.


Each of them have a unique quality that is very appealing to me, I believe #NewMeteorGardenF4 will give everyone a different kind of surprise,” Angie was quoted as saying. 20-year-old actress Shen Yue will star as the strong-willed student Shan Chai, who ends up getting involved with the 4 riches and most popular boys in her school, commonly known as the F4.
