“We would like to know, would you like to do a ‘Moesha’ reboot?" asked Ralph, who portrayed Dee Mitchell in the series, in footage from Fab TV. William Allen Young, who played Moesha’s dad Frank Mitchell on the show, also stood on stage.

“Yeah! Absolutely,” Brandy said. “I’m here to solidify that we’re gonna bring ‘Moesha’ back.”

Amid applause, Ralph said, “So you heard it right here: you will have a ‘Moesha’ reboot.”

“Moesha” originally aired on the UPN  from 1996 to 2001. The series followed teenager Moesha Mitchell as she dealt with struggles of high school and life in Los Angeles.
