“I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family’s coming back,” Davidson, who voiced Proud family father, 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 series ran for 52 episodes between 2001-2005 on Disney Channel, and was the first cartoon to feature an African-American family. The Proud Family was also the first animated series to premiere on Disney Channel. Most shows at the time would first premiere on ABC to see how audiences responded to new content before they were given a formal Disney logo and switched to Disney Channel.
There is no word yet if the rest of the original cast will reprise their roles for the rebooted series on Disney+ and Disney has not shared details on a date for the release of The Proud Family on Disney+ at this time, but we will be sure to update you as new details emerge.
