“Oscar, haven’t you embarrassed her enough?” Trudy asks, to which the overbearing father replies, “Oh no, I’m just getting started.” 

From there, we see that some things truly don’t ever change, as Oscar puts in overtime to protect his daughter, telling her there’s no “dating before you’re married.” 

As we all know, it “ain’t no party like a Suga Mama party,” and she storms in ready as ever to torment her youngest son—saving all her love for her favorite and eldest child Bobby. 

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

Billy Porter and Zachary Quinto will both appear on the show in recurring roles as gay fathers to their 14-year-old activist daughter, portrayed by Keke Palmer.

Lizzo, Lil Nas X, Chance the Rapper, Tiffany Haddish, Gabrielle Union, Normani, Marsai Martin and Lena Waithe will all make guest appearances in the series. 

Disney Channel aired two seasons of The Proud Family from 2001 to 2005. In the same year the sitcom concluded, The Proud Family Movie premiered.

Pratt recently discussed her fears and excitement surrounding the reboot with TV Insider, saying while she’s glad the show is returning, she hopes they can do it justice this time.

“I got to do that character from the age of 14 to 17, so it’s a part of my childhood and for years, people have always been like, ‘You guys need to bring that back. There weren’t enough episodes. It was so amazing,'” she said, adding “it’s coming back now, it’s going to be on Disney+, we have a bunch of new episodes, and it’s basically the old Proud Family rebooted, an upgraded version.”

The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder debuts on Feb. 23.
