Is Keke Palmer getting back to business in 2021? The actress, who’s currently juggling hosting gigs on ABC and Quibi, posted a TikTok on Tuesday suggesting that a reboot of her Nickelodeon comedy True Jackson, VP is in the works for next year.
Watch Palmer’s tease, which includes solid choreography to the show’s iconic theme song (which she sang herself!), via the tweet below:
True Jackson, VP starred Palmer as a 15-year-old fashionista who lands the opportunity of a lifetime when the CEO of Mad Style hires her as the vice president of its youth apparel division. The series also starred Ashley Argota (The Fosters) and Matt Shivley (The Real O’Neals) as True’s best friends Lulu and Ryan, Danielle Bisutti (The O.C.) as True’s office nemesis Amanda, Robbie Amell (The Flash) as True’s boyfriend Jimmy, Ron Butler (Bunheads) as Mad Style receptionist Oscar, and Greg Proops (Whose Line Is It Anyway?) as CEO Max Madigan.
The series ran for three seasons on Nickelodeon (2008–2011), concluding with a two-part “Mystery in Peru” event. And Palmer has kept plenty busy since then, nabbing memorable roles on shows like Showtime’s Masters of Sex (2014), Fox’s Scream Queens (2015–2016), Fox’s Star (2018) and MTV’s Scream (2019). As previously mentioned, Palmer is also flexing her hosting muscles, serving alongside Michael Strahan and Sara Haines on ABC’s GMA3, and with Joel Kim Booster on Quibi’s Singled Out reboot.
If True Jackson, VP does reopen its doors, it’ll join a long list of kids’ shows from the ’90s and ’00s that have enjoyed successful reboots as of late. Boy Meets World (1993–2000) gave us Girl Meets World (2014–2017), Full House (1987–1995) gave us Fuller House (2016–2020) and That’s So Raven (2003–2007) gave us Raven’s Home (2017–present).
