Tracee Ellis Ross Revealed That Girlfriends Will Not Be Rebooted, She Says That Ship ‘Has Sailed’


Tracee Ellis Ross, the star of Black-ish, has clarified that there will be no Girlfriends reboot, despite Persia White meeting with executive producer Kelsey Grammer recently.

She informed Vibe magazine,

“The cast has always wanted to do it, but I’ll be honest with you, the ship has sailed. I don’t think it’s ever going to happen. I think it would be a miracle.”

Despite the reboot not happening, she revealed that She and her former cast mates still remain in touch. 

“We have a thread of me and the girls and we text all the time; we talk about it, but I think we’re all at different places in our lives and our careers now. I think there was a point 10 years ago and then when they [Girlfriends cast] came on Black-ish — we were all game, but we couldn’t get the powers that be to get on board,”

said the actress. 

She went on to say,

“We’ve tried numerous times as a cast to make it happen, but unfortunately, we don’t own the rights to the show. We are not the producers. We are not Mara Brock Akil, CBS Paramount, or whoever the people are that own the show. Golden, Persia, Jill, Reggie, and I have been game; we’ve all talked about it — but I genuinely don’t think it’s ever going to happen at this point.”

“The truth is, I think we have been broken-hearted in the past, but now we are past being broken-hearted. We’re so happy that the audience still loves the show, and still wants it, but I don’t think it’s ever going to happen,”

she added.
