Freeform Orders ‘Party of Five’ Reboot Pilot

Potential Update From the 1994 to 2000 Fox Serialized Drama

The latest revival of an old series potentially in the works is a new version of “Party of Five” on Freeform. Created by Christopher Keyser and Amy Lippman and originally airing on Fox from 1994 to 2000, the serialized drama featured Matthew Fox, Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell and Lacey Chabert, who, with their baby brother Owen cope with life after the loss of their parents in a car accident.

This time the siblings are named Buendias and the premise focuses on this “party of five” who deal with life without their parents who are suddenly deported back to Mexico.
