First there was Twin Peaks, the Gilmore Girls, Will & Grace and The X-Files, now there’s yet another nineties TV remake on the way.
Party Of Five is getting a reboot almost 20 years after it went off air, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
US network Freeform has ordered a pilot from the show’s original series creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman, with the new evolution having a focus on immigration – a hot topic in America right now as President Trump threatens stopping the country’s Green Card Lottery and ending the DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – program, which allows people brought to the US illegally by their parents as children to live, work and study in the country.
Unlike many recent remakes, the show will star new actors rather than the original cast members Neve Campbell, Scott Wolf, Lacey Chabert and Matthew Fox.
Party Of Five aired for six seasons from 1994 to 2000 and centred on the five Salinger siblings, who banded together after their parents were killed in a car accident.
The reinvention of the show will see the Buendias siblings face challenges after their parents were deported to Mexico.
A premiere date for the reboot is TBC.
