According to Sister, Sister star Jackée Harry, a reboot of the family dramedy is happening
More than 20 years after its premiere, is Sister, Sister returning?
Series star Jackée Harry appeared on Steve Harvey‘s talk show Tuesday and made fans of the family comedy that turned the Mowry sisters into stars very happy when she revealed that a reboot is in the works!
“Yeah, it’s happening!” a smiling Harry confirmed when asked about the ongoing rumors. (It is not in the works at ABC, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to PEOPLE.)
“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!” she quipped.
Harry, 61, starred on the show, which aired from 1994–99, as Lisa Landry. Sister, Sister chronicled the lives of identical twins Tia Landry (Tia Mowry-Hardrict) and Tamera Campbell (Tamera Mowry-Housley), who were separated at birth but, after meeting at the mall, move in together with their respective single adoptive mother and single adoptive father.
But on Wednesday, Tia tweeted nothing new is in the works: “Hey guys! Been seeing loads of tweets about the Sister, Sister, reunion. I hate to say it, but I have no NEW news to report to you. Sis and I have been trying to get this going as we still are, BUUUT no NEW news. Trust, you will hear it from us first if it’s a solid go:)”
In July, Mowry-Housely told PEOPLE that the real-life twin sisters’ beloved ’90s sitcom was getting closer to returning to air.

“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 at the time.
“We want to make sure that it is great TV and that it’s gonna be fun,” she explained. “We appreciate all of our fans’ eagerness because we are just as eager as you guys are.”
Back in 2015, Mowry-Housley’s sister first teased a potential reboot, telling Meredith Vieira, “It’s just all about timing … so we’ll see. The fans, they really want it, so we’ll give it to them, probably.”
