Freeform has announced that is picking up a reboot of the classic show Party of Five. The show followed five siblings struggling to make their way through life as a family after the unexpected loss of both of their parents. The show ran for six seasons, won tons of awards, and still has a passionate fanbase even though it's been over for nearly two decades. Freeform announced that the new version will be a "modern reimagining" - and the new plot is bound to make a few people upset.


In the initial series, the Salinger kids lose their parents after an accident with a drunk driver. The show followed the kids through six years of essentially raising each other and fighting their hardest to stay together as a unit.

Original Executive Producers Amy Lippman and Christoper Keyser released a statement saying they will focus on something closer to the heart of the current American political climate.

Twenty-five years ago, we imagined a story about five kids navigating the world after the untimely death of their parents. Today, stories of families being separated, children having to raise themselves in the wake of their parents' deportations, don't require any imagination; they are everywhere. This new iteration of Party of Five isn't a retread of the original; it's a whole new look at kids trying to parent each other in the wake of circumstances beyond their control, yet learning a similar lesson: that families persist no matter how great the obstacles.

Freeform's Executive VP of Programming And Development said the network "just had" to have the series and they were proud to help tell this new story.

News of the reboot is spreading fast on Twitter, and people have a lot to say. Warning: It's not always something good.









What are your thoughts? Does the retooling strike you as relevant and modern or like a "clear political agenda?" Maybe both? Let us know!

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
