The return of this awesome show (which ran for six long years from 1994 to 1999) on Netflix, also puts a full stop at the speculations around a reboot version of the show. The fans were desperate for the show to return with a reboot version; however, with the latest development, it seems that their wish is still far from being fulfilled.
Plot of Sister, Sister:
The plot of revolves around twin sisters Tia and Tamara, who were separated during birth. Their luck seems to work wonders when the siblings meet each other at a mall. Tamera’s adoptive father, Ray, allows Tia and her adoptive mother to move in with them so that the twins can live together. Both girls, poles apart from each other, get on a ride full of adventures and connections from the past.
In January 2018, a reboot version of the show was confirmed. But as per the latest development, the current status regarding the show’s new season is still unknown.
