Do you remember the TV show “Party of Five” that was on back in the ’90s?
The widely popular show was on FOX for six seasons between 1994-2000. The storyline centered around a family (of five) that lost both their parents in a car accident. The older brother became the parental figure to his younger siblings, which of course made things difficult because who’d ever want that responsibility?
If you haven’t seen the original show, it’s on Netflix now.
A reboot of that show is in the works, but this time it will feature an all-Latino cast.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the original creators of “Party of Five” — Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman — are developing the project for Sony Pictures Television Studios.
Although a network has not picked it up yet, we’re sure it’s a matter of time considering the original creators are the ones pitching it.
This storyline will focus on a family who lost their parents after they were deported.

This development, especially its storyline, is so relevant to what’s going on in our country today, and many families will be able to relate to this.
“It’s such a present issue,” Lippman said in an interview with Vulture. “It’s unavoidable and heartbreaking and it’s on the news every single night. And all these show creators are feeling that same incredibly rich source of storytelling.”
Now we’re wondering who will be cast on the show?

If you recall, the original cast featured Scott Wolf as Bailey Salinger (the heartthrob), Matthew Fox as Charlie Salinger (the eldest brother and hotter than Bailey), Neve Campbell as Julia Salinger (the oldest sister with a lot of drama), and Lacey Chabert as Claudia Salinger (the little sister who was pretty annoying as all little sisters are). There was also a baby and other characters that came in and out of their lives.
If casting is reading this, here’s some of our suggestions as to who should be on the show.
Ryan Guzman should play the older brother.
Diego Boneta could be the new Scott Wolf.
Becky G as the older sister.
And as little Claudia the role should go to Anthony Gonzalez, who was the voice of “Coco.”
Because who says it has to be a girl?! We want to see more of Anthony!
