Sister, Sister Reboot May Air Next Fall
[It’s] amazing and wonderful. My sister and I are taking meetings as we speak, so it’s definitely closer than ever to making this reboot happen. We are being told that they want it to be or happen next year in the fall. So, it’s going by so fast, everything.
We’re talking about working with the producers who were producers on the show 15, 20 years ago. Just to be sitting in these meetings with them 20 years later, it’s crazy.
As for the new concept, Tia says:
I’d like it to be where we are in our lives right now. We’re moms with children, but I would like for the show to really focus on sisterhood and the strengths and weaknesses of sisterhood.
Sister, Sister starred identical twins Tia and Tamera Mowry and premiered on April 1, 1994, and concluded after airing six seasons on May 23, 1999. The premise of the show was that the girls (playing characters Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell) were separated and adopted at birth. One was adopted by a single mother while the other was adopted by a couple, although the mother died a short time later. The two accidentally found each other fourteen years later and reunited.
Created by Kim Bass, Gary Gilbert and Fred Shafferman, the series was produced by de Passe Entertainment and Paramount Network Television. The cast, along with Tia and Tamera Mowry, also featured Jackee Harry as Tia’s mother, Tim Reid as Tamera’s father, and Marques Houston as their annoying neighbor. RonReaco Lee and Deon Richmond joined the main cast in the fifth season.
