Neve Campbell Says “Party of Five” Reboot is “Wonderful”

The acclaimed TV drama is being rebooted. 

The series will make its return to the small screen more than 18 years after it ended on Fox (The original ran from 1994-2000). It followed the five Salinger siblings after their parents are killed in a drunk-driving accident and was renowned for tackling heavy issues head-on. 

The reboot, however, is coming back with a twist and will focus on an entirely new family and very different issues telling the story of five children in the Buendias family and their lives after their parents are deported back to their native Mexico.

During a special fan screening of her new film, Skyscraper, in Hong Kong on Saturday, Neve Campbell, who starred in the original series, spoke with ET saying that she thinks the planned reboot is “really wonderful.”

“They’re going to make it a Mexican family of kids whose parents are taken across the border from them. You know, in the same way that our family lost their parents and had to find a way to survive. It’s going to look at that story which a lot of people are dealing with so I think it’s really prevalent.”

If the reboot goes to series, it’s unclear whether any of the original cast members, Campbell, Scott Wolf, Matthew Fox and Lacey Chabert, will appear.
