‘Party of Five’ Reboot Canceled by Freeform After 1 Season

Series ended on March 4

Freeform has canceled its “Party of Five” reboot after one season.

The decision comes more than a month after the series aired its finale on March 4.

The reboot was an immigration-themed update to the 1990s drama and centered on the Acosta children after their parents are suddenly deported back to Mexico. It was produced by Sony TV and was from original series’ creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman.

It starred Brandon Larracuente, Emily Tosta, Niko Guardado and Elle Paris Legaspi. Bruno Bichir and Fernanda Urrejola played the Acosta parents.

Freeform president Tom Ascheim, who greenlit the series and developed the modern update of the former Fox drama with now-ABC entertainment president Karey Burke, is set to depart the network this summer. He will move to Warner Bros. to handle the studio’s children and young adults programming.

Ascheim will be responsible for leading the global strategy for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang, managing the studios of Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation and having global responsibility for the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) channel.
