‘Family Reunion’: Modern parenting in a Black family!
‘Family Reunion’ revolves around a nuclear Black family who travels to Columbus, Georgia from Seattle, Washington for the McKellan Family Reunion and ultimately decide to live closer to the rest of the extended family. Season 1 Part 1 saw husband and wife Moz (Anthony Alabi) and Cocoa (Tia Mowry) McKellan face challenges in raising their four children after their sudden settlement in Columbus. Part 2 continued to explore the generational gap between different members of the family. It ended on a major cliffhanger that left the viewers wanting to know whether or not Jade, the oldest daughter (Talia Jackson) would return after leaving the birthday party with her boyfriend.
The series is also known to feature a number of popular actors in guest roles. In the past, it has featured Erica Ash, Charlie Wilson, Jaleel White, Mark Curry, and Kenya Moore. With part 3, the show intends to expand this list of guest stars with actors Brandi Glanville, Tahj Mowry, Kelly Perine, Bella Podaras, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Anika Noni Rose, Bruce Bruce, and Willie Gault.
