So this morning Penny casually hit us up on Twitter with a little message! She shared that the Proud Family is coming back to Disney.

Then Tommy Davidson confirmed it:

“I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family’s coming back,” Davidson, who voiced Proud family patriarch Oscar, told Where Is the Buzz at the carpet premiere of 47 Meters Down: Uncaged. “It’s on one of Disney’s streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family’s coming back. They told me not to tell you. New episodes.”
The original iteration of the series ran for 52 episodes between 2001-2005 on Disney Channel.
Kyla Pratt voiced protagonist Penny Proud, a family-oriented teen who often butted heads with father Oscar and bullies The Gross Sisters when attempting to enjoy misadventures with friends Dijonay (Karen Malina White), Sticky (Orlando Brown), Zoey (Soleil Moon Frye) and “frenemy” LaCienega (Alisa Reyes).
Paula Jai Parker starred as Proud family matriarch Trudy alongside Jo Marie Payton as Henrietta “Suga Mama” Proud, the spunky poodle-owning grandmother with a crush on the Caesar Romero-inspired Papi (Alvaro Guttierez).
The series’ popularity culminated with The Proud Family Movie, a 2005 Disney Channel Original Movie that acted as a finale for the Bruce W. Smith-created series.
The only question I have now is what’s going to happen to Suga Mama?
If Suga Mama has passed can we get some flashback scenes between the years that have passed and maybe introduce some spunky and witty aunties pic.twitter.com/FOi6zcWsMF
