Recently, the cast of “Family Matters” reunited on the set of the show, sparking reboot rumors, but at least according to Jaleel White, that just isn’t in the cards.

“Reunions of any kind can be tricky affairs mainly due to scheduling. Several members of the #FamilyMatters cast no longer reside in the state of California and they traveled quite a ways to share this one special day. And special it was! Darius is a fool (lol) Bryton (Not So Little Richie) is more mature than all of us now, Shawn and Kellie, you still have jokes…?” White said.

He went on to specifically shoot down the rumors that streaming giant Netflix was looking at the possibility of a Family Matters reboot.

“No one was paid for our @entertainmentweekly gathering. It was done for YOU, the fans & to satisfy our own need to come together as a family. And to set the record straight, no one from #Netflix has ever contacted any of us to express an interest in doing a reboot. No hard feelings at all but that’s the God’s honest truth and life moves on with more blessings to come,” he explained.

He also paid tribute to the late Michelle Thomas, who played his girlfriend on the show, saying, “But no reunion would be complete without me acknowledging our beloved Michelle Thomas ?? This little ray of sunshine gave me some of the best physical comedy moments I’ll ever play on screen. Michelle’s smile never failed to brighten your day and I will forever miss my bubbly Myra Monkhouse #RIP ?1968-1998 ?? I love you, Michelle #prayersup??”
