Penny and her outrageous The Proud Family brood are making a comeback. Jo Marie Payton confirmed during the third hour of Good Morning America on Tuesday that the former Disney Channel animated series will be rebooted and debut new episodes on Disney+ in the new year.
Co-host Keke Palmer asked Payton how she resembles her character Suga Mama and the Family Matters alum said, “Suga’s large and in charge. That’s all I’ve got to say — except for Suga Mama will be doing some new episodes come February.”
