Mowry shared the exciting news to her social media, letting her fans know that the show will soon be available for binge-watching. She said:

The move comes after Netflix content acquisitions manager Bradley Edwards and "Strong Black Lead" manager Jasmyn Lawson endeavoured to promote Black Hollywood.
The streaming service decided to add more Black-led content in 2018 after fans campaigned for it, with Netflix saying that they had more content for the African American audience than any other network.

Mowry will also be appearing in Netflix's new crossover, "Game On: A Comedy Crossover Event." This will see shows like "Mr. Iglesias," "Family Reunion," "The Big Show Show," and "Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love" intersecting.
The crossover will see Palina Chavez and Jencarlos Calena of "Ashley Garcia" appear on "Family Reunion" while Eva Longoria guest stars on "Ashley Garcia." Chavez opened up about working with Longoria, saying:
"Eva Longoria is such an inspiration to me. I was just so privileged to work with her and learn from her. I'm super honored."
Other shows that will be included in Netflix's upcoming releases include "Love & Basketball," " Love Jones," and "B*A*P*S."
They will also be producing a new show by Spike Lee called "She's Gotta Have It" as well as the romantic thriller "A Fatal Affair," by Nia Long and Omar Epps.
