Then there's James Pickens Jr., Courtney B. Vance, Marsai Martin, Jaden Smith, Glynn Turman, Lamorne Morris, Tina Knowles, Holly Robinson Peele, Al Roker, Gabby Douglas, Jane Lynch, Brenda Song, Laurie Hernandez, Bretman Rock and, if you can believe it, more.
Original series lead Kyla Pratt is set to reprise her roll as Penny along with other recurring cast members KeKe Palmer, Asante Blackk, rapper A Boogie, Raquel Lee Bolleau and Marcus T. Paulk.
Set a few years after the original series, the reboot will follow the adventures of Penny, a few years older now, her friends and larger than life family. Palmer, who plays a teen activist in the upcoming show, said of Louder and Prouder that "even though it was on a kids network, it still had the right amount of edge for it to be accessible to everybody."
he Proud Family: Louder and Prouder is set to premiere some time in 2022 with all of the seasons of the original Proud Family currently available to stream on Disney+.
