UPDATE (November 27, 2019): Last August, actor Tommy Davidson who voiced Oscar Proud in The Proud Family revealed that the series will be returning on Disney+ but did not have a definite date on when the show would be coming back. According to E! News, Jo Marie Payton who voiced Suga Mama in the show announced on Strahan, Sara and Keke this week that the cartoon will reportedly return with new episodes in February 2020.
Keke Palmer asked Payton if she was anything like her character during the talk show and said, “Yeah. Suga’s large and in charge, that’s all I’ve got to say – except for Suga Mama will be doing some new episodes come February.”
Disney+ has not yet officially confirmed the return of The Proud Family, so stay tuned while we wait for more details to surface.
ORIGINAL STORY (August 19, 2019): Complex has just reported that The Proud Family will be coming back with new episodes exclusively on Disney+. During a premiere event for 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, actor Tommy Davidson who voiced Oscar Proud, revealed that the 2001 American sitcom will be returning to the new streaming service. Without revealing too much, Davidson said:
“I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family’s coming back,” Davidson told Where Is the Buzz. “It’s on one of Disney’s streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family’s coming back. They told me not to tell you [...] New episodes.”
Kyla Pratt, who played Penny Proud, previously addressed the possibility of a Proud Family comeback in a 2017 interview with CelebSecrets:
“I’m absolutely in love with that idea! I’ve seen that idea circling around the Internet for a while and I’ve seen drawings of a grown-up Penny Proud,” she said. “It’s great because I love animation. I don’t have to do my make-up or hair, I could just show up and be loud! I would love to be a part of that process and I wish they would pull something together because that would be really tight!”
Disney has not confirmed The Proud Family‘s return to Disney+ just yet, so stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, check out all the shows and movies you can stream on Disney+ on its launch day.
