*The original “Soul Food” series ran on Showtime from 2000 to 2004 and it might be returning to Fox.
Based on the 1997 same name film, the show focused on the constant struggles and trials of a Black family in Chicago after the matriarch of the family passed away.
In its early stages of development, Fox is looking to bring new life to the series and bring in a new generation of television watchers.
The move is in step with a growing trend in the TV industry. Slowly but surly more mainstream networks, that were reluctant in the past, are now making way for more Black centered shows.
As far as the new “Soul Food” is concerned, the cast, plot, and debut date all remain a mystery.
