Throwback culture is on the rise on television, with shows like Full House and iCarly that were dear to many children coming back in new and big ways. As some fan-favorite kid shows are getting reboots, some Sister, Sister fans have their eyes out for a revival of the series that starred Tia and Tamera Mowry from 1994-1999. Those fans shouldn't get their hopes up too high, as Tamera Mowry-Housley now explains why they’re not rushing a reboot.
In an interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, Tamera Mowry-Housley explains that even though she would love to reboot Sister, Sister with her real-life and on-screen twin, things would pretty much have to be perfect for them to attempt it for a couple of reasons. Here’s what the The Masked Singer contestant said, in her own words:
I want it, I want it, but the thing is everything has to align perfectly in that sense. And then also, Sister, Sister was such a classic and people loved it. We want to make sure that if we do do the reunion, it is amazing. Otherwise y'all know we're going to end up on The Shade Room and you'll be talking about how bad it is.
Tamera Mowry-Housley, while not as active in films or TV as characters anymore, does appear as herself on TV often and hosts a number of shows. Being busy with her TV career, it makes sense that things would have to line up time-wise for a reboot to happen, especially when you take into account her sister Tia Mowry-Hardrict’s schedule, as she has also stayed active on TV.
The Baker’s Dozen host also points out another potential issue with getting a reboot started. Like Tamera Mowry-Housley says, Sister, Sister is a beloved childhood series and some could argue that leaving it alone would honor the memories had by fans. If a reboot were to happen, Mowry-Housley is correct in saying that they pretty much would have to nail it or else be at the mercy of the fans who grew up on the original.
Talk of a revival for Sister, Sister has been going on for a few years now, but even though the project was seemingly making progress, they were still trying to work out a few steps to get it up and running. While the pandemic surely did not help with getting things together, the process seemed to have been working very slowly for years before COVID ever entered the equation.
It still definitely sounds like a Sister, Sister reboot is a strong possibility for sometime in the future, and star Tamera Mowry-Housley is obviously on board whenever it happens. Seeing as it’ll be a big nostalgic production for a lot of '80s and ‘90s kids, it’s probably a good sign that they’re not rushing it.
