It’s a Reba family reunion!

Over the weekend, country music star Reba McEntire (68) performed a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The show was attended by the singer’s former Reba cast members, including Melissa Peterman (51), JoAnna Garcia Swisher (43) and Steve Howey (45).

Before the show started, the former co-stars posed for a nostalgic reunion picture that was shared on Instagram. The photo shows the three cast members smiling, and in the background, Swisher is casually holding a giant cardboard cutout of McEntire’s face. 

In the caption, Peterman wrote, “Mrs. H is at the Hollywood Bowl tonight!!! @stevehowey @jogarciaswisher @reba @hollywoodbowl.”

If that weren’t enough, the Reba alum also shared a funny video of Swisher walking to the concert venue with her sign in hand. In the video, the Sweet Magnolias star says, “Reba and I are leaving. We’ll meet you at the bowl.”

However, the moment Reba fans were anxiously waiting for came after the show, when the three castmates had a chance to take a quick snap with McEntire (AKA Reba Hart) backstage. 

Reba fans couldn’t contain their excitement about the mini-reunion in the comments section. One fan wrote, “I loved this show.” Another fan expressed their desire to see a show reboot, writing, “We NEED a reboot.”

Speaking of a reboot, Swisher appeared on the podcast The Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul back in February 2022 and shared her thoughts on a reboot. When asked about a possible revival, she shared, “We’d love to do it!”

The 2001 sitcom followed the newly divorced Reba Hart (played by McEntire) trying to navigate life while living in the Houston suburbs with her ex-husband Brook (Christopher Rich) and their three children. The show lasted six seasons until the final episode aired on February 19, 2007. 

This Reba reunion just made our day.
