‘The Proud Family‘ is Coming to Disney+ and with All-New Episodes! According to one of the shows main voice actors, Tommy Davidson, The Proud Family will not only be available for streaming on Disney+ but will also be getting all-new episodes.
Tommy Davidson lends his voice for the quirky, loud, and lovable dad, Oscar Proud, in the Disney Channel Original Series, The Proud Family. He recently spoke with Where Is The Buzz during a red carpet event to spill the “Proud Snacks” to fans everywhere.
“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.
Disney+ will include other animated originals such as: CG-animated Monsters at Work (spinoff of Pixar’s Monsters, Inc.), Toy Story 4 spinoff short series Forky Asks a Question, the Pixar-produced SparkShorts, Marvel Studios What If…? series and a revival of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Another Disney Channel based franchise, High School Musical, finds new life on the streaming service in the live-action High School Musical: The Musical: The Series which follows the next generation of East High Wildcats as they put on their own production of High School Musical.
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. Disney+ launches November 12, 2019 for $6.99/month.
