Here's a fun fact to make you feel old: It's been over 20 years since Sister Sister premiered on ABC. But we may soon have the chance to relive the '90s, because it sounds like a reboot's in the works. In response to rumors of a revival, Jackée Harry—the actress behind the twin sister protagonists' mom Lisa Landry—told Steve Harvey on his talk show, "Yeah, it’s happening!"

"I’m excited," she added. "Tia and Tamera...my babies, too. They won’t leave me alone. I can’t get rid of none of these women!"

For those who don't know, Sister Sister revolves around a classic Parent Trap–style plot: two twins are separated at birth—one adopted by a single dad, and one by a single mom, in this case—and find their way back together. Hilarity ensues, six seasons' worth.

Tia and Tamara Mowry haven't confirmed the news, but Tia told Nylon last year that she was planning to revive the series. "We’re looking, right now, for a producer and a writer, someone who can kind of be a leader of the pack in regards to running the show," she said. "We’re moving forward, we’re taking those strides. They’re slow strides, but we’re pushing as hard as we can to make people happy and make our fans happy."

It sounds like her hard work may finally be paying off, and we'll soon get to see what antics Tia and Tamara are up to 20 years later.
