Party of Five

Last Updated on: February 14th, 2023

Disney’s “Party of Five” series is a reboot of the classic 1990s television show originally created by Christopher Keyser and Amy Lippman. The new version, which premiered on Freeform (a cable channel owned by Disney) in 2020, shifts the focus from the original’s premise of five siblings managing life after their parents’ death to a more contemporary issue.

In the reboot, the story centers around the five Acosta children as they navigate daily life struggles after their parents are deported to Mexico. The show delves into themes of family unity, resilience, and the challenges faced by mixed-status families in America. This iteration of “Party of Five” seeks to offer a modern take on the family drama genre by addressing significant social issues relevant to today’s discussions around immigration and deportation.
