‘The Proud Family’ Revival in the Works at Disney+

Star Jo Marie Payton says new episodes are coming in 2020

A revival of Disney Channel’s “The Proud Family” is in the works at Disney+, series star Jo Marie Payton said on Tuesday.

Payton broke the news on the third hour of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” telling host Keke Palmer that Suga Mama, her character from the show, is “still large and in charge” and “will be doing some new episodes come February.”

A representative for Disney+ declined to comment.

Payton’s “Proud Family” co-star, Tommy Davidson, made a similar tease to @WhereIsTheBuzzTV back in August.

“The Proud Family” ran for three seasons on Disney Channel between 2001 and 2005. In addition to Payton and Davidson, the voice cast also included Kyla Pratt, Paula Jai Parker, Alisa Reyes, Karen Malina White, Orlando Brown, Soleil Moon Frye and Tara Strong.

A revival would follow in the footsteps of “Lizzie McGuire,” another Disney Channel series being revived at the streaming service with much of the original cast reprising their roles.
