“There’s been lots of talks. We have the ball rolling. It’s just a matter of time. We have a writer. I feel like I came up with a fresh take on how we can bring it back with the whole cast in a way that is fresh and new but still nostalgic.” – Tajh Mowry on the Smart Guy reboot
Sitcom In Development – Smart Guy, a Disney comedy from the 1990s, is getting a relaunch, which is presently in the works. Despite the fact that the sitcom was developed by Disney, it first aired on Warner Bros. from 1997 to 1999. T.J. Henderson, a goofy 10-year-old prodigy who jumped classes from elementary school to high school, was played by Tahj Mowry, brother of Sister, Sister’s Tia, and Tamera Mowry. John Marshall Jones, Jason Weaver, Essence Atkins, and Omar Gooding also appeared in the series.
A reboot of Smart Guy is in the works, according to actor Mowry. It’s still in the planning stages, according to Mowry, who has been meeting with the creative team through Zoom to talk about it. Mowry believes that the revival will appeal to the original series’ viewers while also bringing something “fresh and new” to the series. In terms of the cast, Mowry hopes to see everyone from the first season return, but he can’t guarantee it. He made it clear that he will reprise his part as T.J. Henderson, and that the show would now center on T.J.’s adult life.
