State of Grace aired for two seasons on FOX Family, which is now known as Freeform after several years as ABC Family. Fans of the series will see a reunion of the stars and creators of the series later this year.
According to Buzzfeed, the reunion of those involved with State of Grace will take place at the ATX Television Festival this June.
The news outlet shared Mae Whitman’s comments about the planned reunion. In an email, she said:
“State of Grace was probably the most important experience of my whole adolescence,” Whitman told BuzzFeed News in an email. “I met my best friend and became a woman in one of the most loving, supportive, and incredibly creative environments, and I have remained forever grateful. I love every single episode of it and everything related to it and I can’t wait to bring two of my favorite things — State of Grace and ATX Festival — together!”
Alia Shawkat also shared her thoughts about the reunion with Buzzfeed. She said:
“State of Grace was such an important time in my life. The name itself defines my experience, working with such talented writers cast and crew. I am so excited to have the show shared again with new audiences. It’s been hidden for too long for Grace and Hannah to hang out. To be able to talk about this show again with my best friend Mae Whitman and Hollis and Brenda is a true honor.”
The State of Grace reunion is not the only cast reunion planned for the ATX Television Festival. Earlier this week, it was reported that the cast of Friday Night Lights would reunite during a special event.

My 11 year old and I used to watch this show every time it was on. We both loved it. I was thrilled we watched a show that had good values, no vulgar language, no inappropriate behaviors. Just fun and valuable lessons. I had taped some of the shows but since it has gone off the air I have tried to find DVDs of all the shows. I have not had any luck. Just very glad there is a chance State of Grace will come around again!
