“Moesha” is headed back to television.
Nearly two decades since the show went off air, Brandy has announced that a reboot of the popular ’90s sitcom is in the works. During Sheryl Lee Ralph’s DIVA Foundation event earlier this week, the actress, who played Brandy’s stepmother Dee Mitchell on “Moesha,” asked the singer if she wanted to see the show return.
“We would like to know, would you like to do a ‘Moesha’ reboot?” asked Lee (via ABC News Radio).
“Yeah! Absolutely,” Brandy responded before telling the crowd, “I’m here to solidify that we’re gonna bring ‘Moesha’ back.”
Added Lee, “There you go. You heard it right here. You will have a ‘Moesha’ reboot.”

“Moesha” aired from 1996-2001 on UPN. Brandy played high school student Moesha Denise Mitchell in the series, which also starred Marcus T. Paulk, Lamont Bentley, Shar Jackson, Countess Vaughn, and her brother Ray J.
In 2017, the cast reunited for the first time in 16 years on “The Real.”
Since “Moesha” ended, Brandy has appeared on shows including BET’s “The Game” and FOX’s “Star.” She recently earned a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance for “LOVE AGAIN,” her collaboration with Daniel Caesar off his album CASE STUDY 01.
