It’s official: Oprah Winfrey has reunited the cast of A Different World.
Oprah brought the cast of the hit 90s sitcom together Wednesday in Los Angeles to tape an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, an Oprah Winfrey Network publicist confirms to theGrio.com.
Debbie Allen, an executive producer on the show, posted a behind-the-scenes group shot of the cast on her Facebook page. She wrote:
Thank you Oprah Winfrey for bringing us together! Reunited and it feels so good!!!!! #ADifferentWorld.
Cast members present for the reunion also included Sinbad, Dawnn Lewis, Cree Summer, Jasmine Guy, Kadeem Hardison, and Darryl M. Bell.
I have been trying with some very powerful people behind me [to reboot A Different World]. The difficulty is that it’s very convoluted when you’re mixing old writers and new writers. I just wanted to have the name so that I could get started again. Bill Cosby wanted to see this happen. Right now we’re kinda at a stand still. I got really far up that ladder, and then I got stopped. So we’re going to re-investigate it again because it’s such a good idea.
Tune in for an all-new episode of Oprah:Where Are They Now? featuring Candy Spelling, a reunion with the battling blondes of Knots Landing, and Antonio Sabato, Jr., airing this Sunday, June 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
