Not so fast, Sister, Sister fans.
Although series star Jackée Harry recently said in no uncertain terms that a revival of the popular ’90s sitcom about twins separated at birth is happening, her cast mate Tamera Mowry-Housley told EW on Saturday that nothing is certain yet.
“The thing is, nothing new is happening,” Mowry-Housley cautioned at EW’s SAG Awards party. “I think maybe Jackeé was really excited or something, but we’re still in the process. But nothing is confirmed yet.”
As for where the long-gestating project stands, she said, “We have a writer … we’re just trying to find a home for the show. But we have everything else, and everyone is signed on, so that’s what we’re waiting on. So one more step.”
Mowry-Housley added that her sister and costar Tia Mowry-Hardrict “is pregnant right now, and the writer is doing a play in New York, so things are kind of on hold, but we are continuing those meetings in a couple months.”
Asked if a revival could materialize sometime in 2019, Mowry-Housley said, “Oh my gosh, yes.”
The stars of Sister, Sister have long expressed their interest in a reboot, including Harry’s recent comments, which were made on Steve Harvey’s talk show. And Mowry-Hardrict said in 2015, “It’s just all about timing … so we’ll see. The fans, they really want it, so we’ll give it to them, probably.”
