Get ready for a Sister, Sister reunion! Ahead of the second season of the Netflix sitcom, Family Reunion, a holiday special will premiere.
The special will reunite series’ star Tia Mowry-Hardrict with her Sister, Sister co-star, Jackée Harry. The two recently reunited on screen for Lifetime’s 2018 Christmas film, My Christmas Inn.
Black Hollywood legend Telma Hopkins will also guest star in the special. Hopkins and Harry will play the sisters of Loretta Devine’s character, M’Dear.
The official logline from Netflix reads: It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but as we know, for it to be a Wonderful Life the McKellans must face the ghosts of Christmas past. The McKellans are back to spread Christmas joy in this holiday special about the importance of family, forgiveness, and empathy.
Here’s the description for the series, created by its showrunner, Meg DeLoatch: When the McKellan family moves from Seattle to Georgia to be closer to extended family, the transition is like being a catfish out of water. From 3-hour church services and huge humidity hair to M’Dear’s home cooking and family bonding, the everyday ups and downs of Family Reunion are real, memorable, toe-tapping, heart-stopping, laugh out loud authentic moments.
Mowry-Hardrict plays Cocoa McKellan, the free-spirited mother from Seattle. Anthony Alabi is her former football-playing husband, Moz. Devine is the family matriarch, M’Dear. Richard Roundtree, Talia Jackson, Isaiah Russell-Bailey, CJ Wright and Jordyn James also star.
