Will Fans Get A ‘Girlfriends’ Reboot?

Persia White, who portrayed Lynn on the hit show 2000s show, teased the possibility of the program’s return last month after meeting with Kelsey Grammar. But Tracee, who played Joan, is letting fans know that they shouldn’t get their hopes up.

Diana’s daughter told VIBE:

The cast has always wanted to do it, but I’ll be honest with you, the ship has sailed. I don’t think it’s ever going to happen. I think it would be a miracle.”

Can somebody call Tyler Perry? Oprah?

Is The Entire Cast Even Down For A Reboot?

Tracee Ellis Ross also said she still speaks to her former castmates often. The actress shared that she has a group chat with White, Golden Brooks (Maya), and Jill Marie Jones (Toni).

“We have a thread of me and the girls and we text all the time; we talk about it, but I think we’re all at different places in our lives and our careers now,” she admitted.

The 51-year-old continued, “I think there was a point 10 years ago when they [‘Girlfriends’ cast] came on ‘Blackish,’ and we were all game, but we couldn’t get the powers that be to get on board.”

Tracee admitted it’s out of their hands.

“We’ve tried numerous times as a cast to make it happen, but unfortunately, we don’t own the rights to the show,” she explained. “We are not the producers. We are not Mara Brock Akil, CBS Paramount, or whoever the people are that own the show.”

In addition, the actress shared how devastated she was that the show was canceled, just like fans were.

“The truth is, I think we have been broken-hearted in the past, but now we are past being broken-hearted,” she said before adding, “We’re so happy that the audience still loves the show, and still wants it, but I don’t think it’s ever going to happen.”

For now, roommates, you can catch reruns of the show on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
