The series, a critically acclaimed revival of Disney’s groundbreaking The Proud Family, is executive-produced by its creator Bruce W. Smith, and Ralph Farquhar.
The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder picks up the story of its central character, Penny Proud, and includes her madcap family: parents Oscar and Trudy, twin siblings BeBe and CeCe, and grandmother Suga Mama (and Puff!).

Paulk as Myron. Recurring new voices that will also return for the second season include Keke Palmer as Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins; Billy Porter and Zachary Quinto as Randall and Barry Leibowitz-Jenkins; EJ Johnson as Michael Collins; Asante Blackk as Kareem; Artist “A Boogie” Dubose as Francis “KG” Leibowitz-Jenkins; Bresha Webb as CeCe; and Aiden Dodson as BeBe.
The second season will feature a star-studded guest cast, including singer and producer Chance the Rapper; Gabrielle Union (L.A’s Finest); singer and dancer Normani; Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton); Anthony Anderson (black-ish); gymnasts Dominique Dawes, Gabby Douglas and Laurie Hernandez; Jane Lynch (Glee); Holly Robinson Peete (21 Jump Street); Maury Povich (Maury); Storm Reid (Euphoria); Courtney B.
