It’s 25 years later and Oprah Winfrey is reuniting the cast of the groundbreaking television show, A Different World.
The Hillman College crew was all under the same roof for an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? on OWN.
The cast reunion consisted of stars Jasmine Guy, Kadeem Hardison, Darryl M. Bell, Dawnn Lewis, Cree Summer, Sinbad, and Debbie Allen, sharing how they addressed difficult life issues in each episode and reflecting on their favorite memories of six seasons together.
During the interview, the cast also mentioned the lasting impression and impact the show has on young viewers some 20 years later.
“To this day still, I’ll be on Twitter and just say that I’m getting together with these guys and everybody goes crazy. You just get a flood of people saying, ‘I wouldn’t have gone to University if it wasn’t for your show,’” Summer said.
“That’s the genius of Dr. Cosby,” Guy added. “He understood the power of the medium, so he chose a setting that would influence people as well as make them laugh.
Oprah: Where Are They Now? with the cast of A Different World premieres October 26 at 9/8c.
