Did you use to watch The Proud Family and miss when it went off TV? Then get excited because Disney+ has ordered the revival of the groundbreaking animated series!
18 years after "The Proud Family" Disney Channel premiere, it's still beloved for its characters, stories and multilayered humor and for its messages about inclusion and cultural diversity in a smart, modern way.
The new animated family sitcom "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder" is currently in production at Disney Television Animation with Academy Award-winning creator/executive producer Bruce W. Smith and executive producer Ralph Farquhar, who led the original series, at the helm, reuniting them with Calvin Brown, Jr. who is co-executive producer and story editor.
In a joint statement, Smith and Farquhar said, "In our minds, the show never really went away, as we still had tons of stories left to tell. It's the perfect time to bring back this show, and we can't wait to take fans, old and new alike, on this journey with us."
Picking up the story of its central character Penny Proud, the new series will also include her madcap family: parents Oscar and Trudy, twin siblings BeBe and CeCe, and her grandmother Suga Mama (and Puff!). Of course, it would not be "The Proud Family" without Penny's loyal crew Dijonay Jones, LaCienega Boulevardez and Zoey Howzer, among others.
Reprising their voice roles are: Kyla Pratt as Penny Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar Proud, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy Proud, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer and Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez. Cedric the Entertainer will also return as Uncle Bobby Proud.
For those of you who can't wait for the new series release, you can watch all previous seasons of “The Proud Family” now available on Disney+.
