Following Tommy Davidson’s announcement last year, Disney+ has finally confirmed a new The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder series featuring the original cast and director/executive producer from the original show.

Original series creator/executive producer Bruce W. Smith and executive producer Ralph Farquhar will return alongside co-EP and story editor Calvin Brown. “In our minds, the show never really went away, as we still had tons of stories left to tell,” Smith and Farquhar said in a statement. “It’s the perfect time to bring back this show, and we can’t wait to take fans, old and new alike, on this journey with us.”

Reprising their voice acting roles are Kyla Pratt as Penny Proud, Tommy Davidson as Oscar, Paula Jai Parker as Trudy, Jo Marie Payton as Suga Mama, Karen Malina White as Dijonay Jones, Soleil Moon Frye as Zoey Howzer, Alisa Reyes as LaCienega Boulevardez, and finally, Cedric the Entertainer as Uncle Bobby.

The Proud Family originally debuted in 2001 and ended its run in 2005 with a movie release titled The Proud Family Movie. The comical cartoon series followed the life of 14-year-old Penny Proud, voiced by Kyla Pratt, and her family through the meanderings and challenges of teenage life. All of the original Proud Family episodes are also available on Disney+
