It looks like that Sister, Sister reboot really is happening, with star Jackée Harry pretty much confirming that it's in the works.

The actress, who played Tia Landry's adoptive mother Lisa on the '90s sitcom, appeared on Steve Harvey's talk show and was pressed on the subject.

"Yeah, it's happening!" Jackée declared, much to everyone's delight.

"I'm excited. Tia and Tamera [Mowry]... my babies too," she added. "They won't leave me alone. I can't get rid of none of these women!"

The sitcom, which ran between 1994 and 1999, starred identical twins Tia and Tamera as characters Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell, who are separated at birth though find each other years later.

Back in October, Tia also teased a potential revival and suggested that it could follow the twins 18 years later, now married with kids.

"I will say this, we are definitely closer than ever," she said. "That's basically all I can say. But I'm getting excited.

"As I know of now, definitely Jackée Harry and Tim Reid will definitely be part of the show.

"I think I would want it to pick up with where our lives are now. We're married with kids. But I definitely would want it to focus on the power of sisterhood.

"How wonderful and amazing that sisterhood and that relationship can be. How it helps you in whatever trial and tribulations you are in. When you have the sisterhood and that bond, that is so beautiful."

Well there's obviously enough interest to generate a reboot so take your attitude elsewhere

I think a lot of people of my generation here in the UK do, same with the US. But does it mean I’ll watch it? Probably not.

I personally wasn’t a massive fan of this compared to other shows of the same era.

I’d put Sabrina as arguably the most successful one out of all of those. Hated Clarissa though, and K&K was alright but grew tiresome.

Oh yeah, Sabrina was definitely the most successful. What I like about Sister Sister is that it’s just an enjoyable as an adult thanks to some of the dialogue and storylines.

My grandmother looks just like Jackee, and it scares me.

Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

Pretty much all reboots are terrible, I don't know why they keep doing them.

Anyways, I watched this show when I was a kid, but it's one of those shows best left in the past.

Lisa was always my fav, especially in the first 2 seasons. As an 8 year old boy, I used to imitate her all the time.

Lisa was the star of this show, she was camp as tits.

Wonder if Marques Houston is on board now his music career has fizzled out

Yes re. Lisa, so so camp.

Roger was redundant after the first 2 seasons. He was so funny in the early days, so sick and perverted, something I didn’t realise until I was older :lol:
