This Is Not A Drill: A ‘Sister, Sister’ Reboot Is Happening

One of the show’s stars confirmed the news

We saw an insane amount of our favorite '90s shows and films being remade last year. From a new Hocus Pocus film to a Heathers television remake and the rebirth of MTV's TRL, it's safe to say that 2017 was chock-full of nostalgic feels. But it seems that 2018 is giving last year a run for its money because a new reboot of Sister, Sister is officially underway. 

Rumors of the show's reboot began swirling last year when one of its stars, Tia Mowry, said that the possibility was "not dead in any kind of way," and that cast members were "pushing as hard as we can to make people happy and make our fans happy.” Well, looks like they were successful because Jackée Harry, who starred on the show as Tia and Tamera Landry's mother Lisa Landry, confirmed the news while visiting Steve Harvey's talk show yesterday. 

“Yeah, it’s happening," she said matter-of-factly to Harvey. “I’m excited. Tia and Tamera [Mowry] are my babies, too. They won’t leave me alone. I can’t get rid of none of these women!”

The show aired from 1994 to 1999 on ABC, but, according to People, the reboot won't appear on the same network. There's also no word on which actors from the original cast will be in the modern version, but we can't wait to see it all come together.

Showtime just ordered a pilot episode of Casallina "Cathy" Kisakye's comedy anthology series, which will be executive-produced by Lena Waithe. The show, called How to Make Love to a Black Woman (Who May Be Working Through Some Shit), sounds like it'll be... informative.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, though the series is a comedy, it will also touch on some vulnerable subjects as well. It described the show as being about "connection and rejection that explore our most harrowing—and harrowingly comic—sexual secrets." Waithe said in a statement about the news, "Cathy's script is haunting, funny, and extremely vulnerable—it's the kind of script that doesn't come around very often." She continues, showing her excitement for the project: "I'm honored that Cathy trusts me with such a special project. I can't wait for the world to see it."

Kisakye, who previously worked with Waithe on The Chi, says that the show is close to her heart, and that the series will portray three-dimensional, complex women. "With How to Make Love, I'm thrilled to tell stories about the women I know, who are complicated, passionate, resilient, and relatable," she said in a statement.

Kisakye is the creator of the show, and will be writing the pilot script. It's the latest project to come to Showtime through Waithe's first-look deal and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, should it go to series, this would be the first anthology for the network.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.
