Reboots and revivals are all the rage on the small screen nowadays, and a number of shows have managed to bring casts together after many years for another go. Shows ranging from The X-Files to Twin Peaks to Roseanne have all gotten the reboot/revival treatment, and it really feels like just about any show is fair game. Now, it seems that classic 1990s sitcom Sister, Sister could come back as well. Star Tia Mowry has weighed in on the future of the series, saying this:
We're looking, right now, for a producer and a writer, someone who can kind of be a leader of the pack in regards to running the show. I thought people would kind of be jumping on it, but it's a lot harder than my sister and I thought it would be. Everything in my career has always been a challenge. It's not dead in any kind of way. We're moving forward, we're taking those strides. They're slow strides, but we're pushing as hard as we can to make people happy and make our fans happy.
The good news is that both Tia and Tamera Mowry are willing to reprise their roles as the titular sisters of Sister, Sister. The not-so-good news is that the Mowry sisters aren't having the most success in finding somebody to get a reboot off the ground. Tia's comments to Nylon at least indicate that she and her sister haven't given up on getting back together for their fans.
The news that the Mowry sisters are having a hard time finding a producer to get things moving might come as a surprise. Sister, Sister was a popular series, and it ran for six seasons from 1994 to 1999. Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell were just about as hilariously mismatched as a set of twins could be, and their parents brought plenty of laughs as well as the two families combined to make one big (and slightly bizarre) unit. Even if the entire cast couldn't get back together for a reboot of some sort, Tia and Tamera should be enough to take fans on a delightful blast from the past. Would I be bummed if a reboot happened without Lisa, Ray, and Roger? Sure. But I'd take it if it meant more Sister, Sister.
If a reboot does ever happen, my fingers are crossed that the theme song and credits sequence will throwback to the original. There's nothing wrong with updating shows for the times, but the original credits were classic. Check them out!
