We all know that Keke Palmer is a true boss in real life, but based on her recent social media post, the “Strahan, Sarah, and Keke” co-host could be stepping back into her role as fictional TV boss True Jackson.
“True Jackson, VP”, which aired on Nickelodeon from 2008 to 2011, starred Palmer as the vice president of the youth apparel division of fictional fashion brand Mad Style and followed her as she tried to balance attending high school, growing her budding fashion career, and navigating the daily ups and downs of being a teenager.
The 26-year-old singer and actress got millennials talking when she posted a video all but announcing a reboot of her Nick show. “Congrats! Another reboot! Y’all made this happen 😭🥴💀,” she captioned the TikTok video, one in which she danced around to the theme song (sung by her, of course).
There’s no official word from Nickelodeon yet on whether there are plans to bring back True and her crew, but with the amount of television classics that have been resurrected over the past decade, as well as the success of the series, it would make perfect sense. “True Jackson, VP” won five NAACP Image Awards during its three-season run and spawned a book series and Walmart clothing line.
The show concluded with the CEO of Mad Style promoting True to president of the company, which leaves room for the perfect spot to pick the story up almost a decade later if the rumors are true.
Also starring in the hit series were Robbie Amell, Ashley Argota, and Matt Shively, who have since responded to Palmer’s video about the possible return with a mixture of support and confusion:
