Do we have a 'Proud Family: Louder and Prouder' release date yet?

We don't know the exact date when the Proud Family reboot will premiere, but we know it's coming out in 2022. Right now, not much has been released about the series so far. But the show will follow Penny and her friends as she navigates the world around her.

And there's been plenty of 'Proud Family' love on Twitter.

Tons of people online, including Keke herself, are very excited that she will be on The Proud Family reboot. "Dreams come true," she commented as she retweeted Disney Channel's original announcement of the show. "There’s a new girl coming to town," Disney Plus said. "Prepare to fall in love with 14-year-old activist Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins, voiced by @KekePalmer, from the upcoming Original Series."

Disney describes Maya as "extremely mature for her age." She "will not hesitate to shut anyone down with her blunt honesty and wisdom. The adopted daughter of mixed-race parents, Maya is new to town and initially disassociates herself from Penny and her crew because she is skeptical about what she perceived to be the superficiality of social cliques. However, Penny eventually gains her hard-earned respect and the two become good friends."

Besides Keke, other big names are also attached to this reboot. People like Tiffany Haddish, Gabrielle Union, Normani, and more are all said to be guest stars on the show. Plus, they all appear in a behind-the-scenes video for the show. They all talked about how The Proud Family impacted them growing up.
