“Sister Sister” Reboot, Whitney Enters Grammy Hall Of Fame: Black Hollywood Wrap Up
by Ms. Black Hollywood,
“Sister, Sister” ♪Shaking Up the Family Tree♪ 2018 Actress Jackée Harry says it’s time for a family reunion for identical twin sisters separated at birth. Audiences first met Tia and Tamera Mowry in the sitcom that debuted in 1995 during ABC’s TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) line-up. Unable to pull a big enough audience, ABC cancelled the show, but it was snatched by The WB network and helped the struggling infant channel build a solid viewership. The WB was home for the show for the next four years until 1999. Along with with the Mowry twins, the cast included Harry as the adoptive mother of one twin and Tim Reid as the adoptive father of the other. The families blended when the twins discovered one another. Huff Post reports that Harry says “a reboot of the family comedy series “Sister, Sister” is on the way. It’s happening.” The article also quoted Mowry who said back in a magazine interview in May, a “remake was in the works, but she added that she and her twin, Tamera Mowry were having trouble” at that time getting the show picked up. Now that hurdle has been tackled, it looks one step closer to seeing all the originals reprise their roles for the reboot.
