Freaks and Geeks creators Judd Apatow and Paul Feig have said that a reunion film or series is very unlikely.

The acclaimed teen comedy series starring James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel was cancelled after just one season by NBC over a decade ago.

In a joint interview with Entertainment Weekly, Feig and Apatow said that a Freaks and Geeks reunion could ruin the show's legacy.

Feig explained: "I find it scary. I mean it could be great, but if it's anything less than great, then it just waters down the memory of the rest of the show.

"For some reason that becomes the last thing you've done, and I always feel like if you don't get it right it erases the memory of what came before it. But I don't know. If we came up with a great idea, who knows?"

Producer Apatow added that he enjoys the fact that the show ended on a mysterious note.

He said: "I love the question mark at the end of the series, so I never want to know more than that. It is the reason why you don't want to find out what happened, like when they got off the bus in The Graduate."

Apatow added "That's the main reason why it doesn't feel interesting to do. But whenever we see any of the actors together, they have just such ridiculous chemistry that you could tell you could put them in any situation and they would be really interesting to watch, and sparks would fly.

"So there's a chance I'm just completely wrong."

Apatow has gone on to work with former cast members Franco, Rogen and Segel in movies including Pineapple Express and Knocked Up.
