Imagine my surprise when my sister called me Sunday afternoon and said, “Girl, did you know Soul Food is coming back on TV?” My heart almost jumped out of my chest! After scribbling down the details, I quickly went to Instagram to express my excitement! Unfortunately, there are no new episodes, only the ones we came to love on Showtime. I’m really hoping they all can come together and bring us more Soul Food! Whose with me?
If you are not familiar with this original Showtime series, here is a summary of what the show is about (Per Aspire TV):
Based on the critically acclaimed 1997 film from writer/director George Tilman, Jr. the series takes an honest, touching look at tradition and family life through the trials and tribulations of a tight-knight African-American family living in Chicago. Although the Joseph’s beloved matriarch, Mama Joe (Irma P. Hall) has passed away, she is still there in spirit and her words of wisdom resound through her grandson Ahmad (Aaron Meeks).
Maxine (Vanessa Williams, Raising Izzie), the middle Joseph sister, Ahmad’s mother and homemaker, is married to Kenny (Rockmond Dunbar, The Mentalist) a hard working and loving man working hard to provide for his family.
Bird (Malinda Williams, A Baby For Christmas), the youngest sister, is a feisty hair stylist married to ex-con Lem (Darrin Dewitt Henson, Being Mary Jane) who is trying to turn his life around.
Teri (Nicole Ari Parker, Rosewood) is eldest newly single sister who puts more into her high-profile law career than she does into her love life until she meets the handsome delivery man Damon (Boris Kodjoe, Real Husbands of Hollywood).
