The Latest '90s Show to Get Rebooted Is . . .

The Latest '90s Show to Get Rebooted Is . . . Party of Five!

Apparently, 2018 is the year we'll all become re-obsessed with our favorite '90s franchises. Between the Roseanne reboot and another shot at Sister, Sister, we thought all of our nostalgic series dreams had already come true . . . but then came the news that Party of Five will return to screens sometime soon.

If you're envisioning picking up where the original story — which was like Seventh Heaven meets The Boxcar Children — left off, think again. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Freeform has picked up the series, which will follow a new group of siblings in the wake of their parents' unexpected deportation to Mexico. So don't expect to see Lacey Chabert, Matthew Fox, and the rest of the cast reprise their roles (unless they make cameos) in the reboot!

For original '90s fans and a new generation of teen viewers who are less familiar with Party of Five, Freeform will reportedly begin airing reruns of the series several nights a week leading up to the reboot. Keep your eyes peeled for details, because we're sure to get the scoop on casting news and release dates sometime soon.

So, I won't see Bailey and Sarah get back together and live happily ever after? 😢

I liked Party of Five but I won't watch a reboot. I will however watch the reruns if they show them.

That show was terrible the first time around. A show about teens free from parental restriction, doing whatever they want, sleeping around, buying themselves cars, etc with the insurance, having an emotionally 12 year old oldest brother supposedly "parenting" them, and no one at all being any kind of parent or guardian to the 10 year old and the baby. Like a teen's fantasy or something.

I loathed Bailey and Sarah. I liked Neve Campbell, so watched the first year or two I think.
