"It's the perfect time to bring back this show, and we can't wait to take fans, old and new alike, on this journey with us."

"The genius of the original Proud Family series was that, under the guise of a family comedy, it provided a brilliant social commentary on our life and times," added Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide. "With this new series, Bruce and Ralph will once again challenge everyone to think differently about the world we share."

"The show's humor and relatable stories are as relevant with audiences today as ever," Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+ chimed-in.
