Sister, Sister star Jackée Harry—who played Tia Landry’s (Tia Mowry) adoptive mom, Lisa—says that a revival is happening soon. Harry confirmed the news on Steve Harvey’s talk show earlier this week, and made fans of the beloved 90s sitcom very happy. “Yeah, it’s happening!” Harry said when asked about the revival, even though ABC has yet to confirm any of the rumors.
“I’m excited. Tia and Tamera [Mowry] … my babies, too. They won’t leave me alone. I can’t get rid of none of these women!”
Tamera Mowry-Housely (Tamera Campbell) talked to People magazine in July about a possible revival, and how it was still in the early planning stages.
“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. 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.”
Her real-life twin, Tia Mowry also spoke with NYLON magazine in 2017 about how they are actively working on bringing the hit show back for their fans, but that it hasn’t been easy to garner the right people’s interest in a revival.
“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… [but] 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.”
Sister, Sister originally premiered on ABC for only two seasons between 1994 and 1995. The show was then picked up by The WB, where it ran for four seasons until its finale in 1999.
