Despite airing its final episode more than 15 years ago, ‘Sister Sister’ remains one of the most loved and lauded sitcoms of all time.
From the antics of leads Tia and Tamera Mowry, to the laughs served up by supporting characters Lisa, Ray, and of course Roger, the show set a precedent few have been able to rival.
Still, with both Mowry sisters having blossomed into womanhood and enjoying success in their solo endeavours, a reboot seemed somewhat far-fetched.
During an interview to promote new show Instant Mom, Tia revealed that she wants to revisit the twins’ on-screen story, going as far as to relay the direction she’d want it to take.
Sister 2 Sister aptly reports:
When OK! magazine caught up with Tia for the 20th anniversary of her classic sitcom, airing now on The Hub, the actress got really excited after the idea of a movie was brought up. She’s so gung-ho about the idea that she’s even come up with a plot line for a potential Sister, Sister movie follow-up.
Last time “Sister, Sister” fans saw the twins playing Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell, the characters were in college working towards their degrees. Tia was even considering an internship with the WNBA.
If they ever got to revisit those roles, the “Instant Mom” star wants to examine how different the sisters’ lives have become in the years since “Sister, Sister” went off the air.
“Oh, my gosh! I would love to do Tia and Tamera go to Paris or to see where are they now. Maybe one of them is married, one’s not, one of them’s extremely successful and the other one’s struggling and she has to help the one who’s struggling. One of them has a family, the other one doesn’t.”
Nostalgia can be a tricky road to journey down, yet we’d be lying if we said we weren’t excited by the concept!
In there here and now, though, fans can catch Tia on Nickelodeon’s Instant Mom and Tamera on The Real when it returns for a full season run in September.
