Mowry accompanied the announcement with a picture of herself all smiles as she hung from the stairs of a mobile home.
The photo showed the mother-of-two dressed in a blue top tucked into printed shorts. A pair of shiny brown heels completed her glamorous look. Her caption read:
“Hey, girl! Back to playing 'coco' on @netflix #familyreunion. I love my job.”
Following the post, fans patronized the comment section to commend Mowry’s endeavors. Many expressed their excitement over having the actress back on screen and how much they anticipated the new season.
Since the premiere of the Netflix show, "Family Reunion," which had Mowry starring alongside notable personalities like Loretta Devine, the actress became a definition of “mom goals.”
It happened at the early stages of their success on “Sister, Sister.”
Mowry played Cocoa McKellan, a Seattle-based mother-of-four who is outspoken, free-spirited, and fun. Although the series was hardly her first Netflix show, her role as Coco remains one of her most iconic. The movie’s success garnered her a fanbase her teenage self would never have imagined.
Mowry has been open about some of her challenges in Hollywood and how the industry came to accept her. Speaking to interviewers about her experiences as an actress, she recalled how a magazine once denied her and her sister, Tamera Mowry a feature on a magazine cover.
It happened at the early stages of their success on “Sister, Sister" and the reason they were denied the opportunity was because they were Black.
As most may recall, Mowry and her twin sister rose to fame when they co-starred on the WB series, “Sister, Sister” in the ‘90s. The duo attained celebrated heights as the fictional sisters, Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell who were separated at birth.
Following their stint on the series, Mowry appeared in other shows like “Twitches,” “The Game,” and “Tia Mowry At Home” starring in most alongside her twin sister.
Fast-forward two decades down the line, they have both become celebrated actresses, with the Netflix revival of “Sister, Sister” hitting the streaming giant’s top ten list within days of its announcement.
