*It’s been 18 years since “Moesha” rocked the airwaves and there have been endless rumors that a reboot, with nothing confirmed—until now.
Singer Brandy has announced that a series reboot is in the works!
“Moesha” aired on the UPN from January 23, 1996, to May 14, 2001. The series starred Brandy Norwood and Sheryl Lee Ralph, who portrayed Moesha’s stepmother Dee Mitchell.
Brandy was a guest at Ralph’s recent DIVA Foundation event where she announced the exciting news about the show. Joined onstage by Sheryl and William Allen Young who played Moesha’s father, Frank Mitchell, in the series, Lee asked Brandy, “We would like to know, would you like to do a ‘Moesha’ reboot?”

The series also starred Marcus T. Paulk, Lamont Bentley, Yvette Wilson, Shar Jackson, Ray J, and Countess Vaughn. Bentley died in a car crash 14 years ago, and Wilson succumbed to cervical cancer in 2012.
