Right now, it's still ambiguous as to whether the entire original cast will be returning for the reboot, but it is safe to say that Davidson will be associated with the project.
Disney+ has already promised a huge array of content for the whole family, including the entire back catalog of Disney movies, original content from both the Star Wars and Marvel franchises and a ‘reimagination’ of some older franchises, as well as a partner subscription with Hulu and ESPN+. But, needless to say, the streaming service will also have a few surprises up their sleeves. Earlier this week, Davidson announced the comeback of The Proud Family, even though the officials have asked him not to talk about it.
Davidson broke the news to Where Is The Buzz at the premiere of 47 Meters Down Uncaged. The original animated show originally ran for 52 episodes on Disney Channel from 2001-2005 and the plot of story revolved around the story of teenager Penny Proud as she figured out how to gain her independence and tackle junior high school.
The girl got herself into all sorts of funny situations alongside her parents, Trudy and Oscar, and her grandma, Henrietta, who is also known as 'Sugar Mama'. Penny has dealt with bullies The Gross Sisters while embarking on adventures with friends Dijonay, Sticky and Zoey, as well as ‘frenemy’ LaCienega.
With The Proud Family returning to Disney+ and apparently being a new season, not a reboot. I only have one request— TRAFON (@RiseFallNick) 17 August 2019

Davidson has voiced the character of Penny's dad while the protagonist was played by Kyla Pratt. The series ended with the 2005 Disney Channel Original Movie, The Proud Family Movie, but there are clearly more adventures to be had as the family will be back in action on Disney+.

Speaking to Where is the Buzz, Davidson said, "I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family’s coming back. It’s on one of Disney’s streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family’s coming back. They told me not to tell you. New episodes."

Right now, it's still ambiguous as to whether the entire original cast will be returning for the reboot, but it is safe to say that Davidson will be associated with the project. The new episodes will be aimed at a much younger audience, but it is safe to say that there'll be a few nostalgic young adults out there who are curious to see what Penny and her pals get up to.
