‘You Heard It Right Here’: Brandy Says a Reboot of ‘Moesha’ Is Coming

“Mo to the, E to the.”

A lot of people sang those words between the years of 1996 and 2001 when the sitcom “Moesha” was on the air. And they’ve continued to do so in reruns.

But the famous theme song might be updated, because it was recently suggested that a reboot of the show is on its way.

The possibility was raised on Sunday at Sheryl Lee Ralph’s DIVA Foundation event, where Brandy Norwood and William Allen Young were in attendance.

Norwood played the star, Moesha Mitchell, on the show, Ralph played her stepmother Dee and Allen Young played her father Frank.

Other people on the series included Countess Vaughn as Moesha’s friend Kim, Shar Jackson as Niecy, Marcus T. Paulk as Myles and Norwood’s brother Ray J as Dorian Long.

The actor Lamont Bentley took on the role of Hakeem years before his death in a car crash in 2005 at 31 years old. And Yvette Wilson, who played Andell on the show, tragically passed away from cervical cancer in 2012 at the age of 48.

“We would like to know if you would like to do a ‘Moesha’ reboot,” Ralph asked Norwood onstage at her event.

“Yeah,” the R&B singer replied. “Absolutely. I’m here to solidify that we’re going to bring ‘Moesha’ back.”

“There you go,” Ralph said afterward. “So you heard it right here. You will have a ‘Moesha’ reboot.”

“So y’all really bringing it back?!” one Instagram user asked, seemingly doubtful about the series returning.

“Give us at least 2 seasons,” another person requested.

In regard to her music career, Norwood put out a single on Sept. 27 called “Freedom Rings,” which is said to be the first cut on her upcoming album, her first one since 2012’s “Two Eleven.”

The new single was released on the 25th anniversary of her debut LP “Brandy,” which dropped on Sept. 27, 1994.
