Sister, Sister, that show with an improbable separated-at-birth plot, featuring Tia and Tamera Mowry is joining the ranks of so many other mid-’90s sitcoms and getting a reboot of its very own.
The news was confirmed by Jackeé Henry in an appearance on Steve Harvey’s talk show on Tuesday. “I’m excited!” she told Harvey, who then segued into a brief ramble about how Tia shows up on his show every now and then to cook (?). This news was confirmed as such by Tia, who told Us Weekly in November, “[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.”
Exciting news for those who have had the theme song of this sitcom stuck in their heads on an unending loop every time they refer to one of their female siblings (me) but also exciting news for those with fond memories of their crush on Marques Houston—a.k.a. Batman of Immature—even though Houston is arguably less cute now (Hello!). Go home, Roger! Or stay. Whatever.
The concept of the reboot hasn’t been confirmed yet, but Tia told Us Weekly that she wants it to “really focus on sisterhood and the strengths and weaknesses of sisterhood.” All one can really hope is that the opening credits of the reboot will explain the show’s premise as succinctly as the original.
