‘Sister, Sister’ star says ‘everything is in place’ for show’s reboot

We're getting closer to a revival of the cult 1990s show

Sister, Sister star Tia Mowry-Hardrict has given an update on the 90s show reboot – claiming that “everything is in place”.

Earlier this month Jackée Harry – who played Lisa Landry, Tia and Tamera’s adoptive mother – said that the return was in the works and confirmed: “yeah, it’s happening!”

However, there were uncertainties over which network would broadcast the show – with ABC confirming that they are not behind the revival.


Now, Tia Mowry-Hardrict has given more details on the progress of the new show. Speaking to Us Weekly, she said: “The thing that I can tell you is we’re trying everything that we can possibly do to make everybody happy and the fans happy.”

“There’s a hurdle that we have to jump,” she continued. “There’s only one other hurdle and once we jump this hurdle, it’s on and cracking. We just have to wait until that kind of fleshes itself out.”

She added: “We have the writers. We have everything. Everything is in place, so we’re going to be taking meetings in the next few months, so we’ll see.”

The cult children’s sitcom initially ran on ABC from its debut in 1994 until it switched to The WB a year later, with the show spanning six seasons before ending in May 1999.

Back in July, Tamera Mowry-Housley told PEOPLE that she had been in talks about the revival of Sister, Sister along with her sister and co-star.

“We’re meeting with writers and producers because we wanna make sure it’s all a great fit, but we are progressively moving forward to make this happen,” Mowry-Housley said. “We want to make sure that it is great TV and that it’s gonna be fun.


“We appreciate all of our fans’ eagerness because we are just as eager as you guys are.”
