When the members of famous groups part ways, the fans that they would be leaving behind would always want a reunion of the said group. For example, if you watch the music video of Story Of My Life, you will notice that the comment section is full of hopefuls for a One Direction reunion. In social media, some are still expecting a 2NE1 comeback. However, not all separated groups remain separated for long. Recently, the cast of A Different World came together to reunite with their former acting colleagues.

A Different World is a TV series produced by NBC that ran from 1987 to 1993. It focused on the life of black students in a university. Its primary attention was on Denise Huxman at Hillman College, a fictional black college in the state of Virginia. The show followed her life and her interactions with other students in the said institution.

The reunion of the staff of a 90s classic

In a Yahoo Life report, it was stated that the cast used the Smiths’ Red Table Talk to recall their experiences during the production of the sitcom. The mentioned talk show is spearheaded by Jada Pinkett Smith, the woman who played the college freshman Lena James in A Different World.

The talk show episode featured some of the former characters of the show. They discussed the memories they made while creating the show and also the effect their show had on social movements. Someone claimed that their show inspired black people to attend universities, even though they were barred from doing so at that time. They had become successful in tackling sensitive topics, and they gave voices to those who fell victim to such topics we would often refrain from talking about. This had been the defining feature that set them apart from The Cosby Show.

Below, we will have a rundown of the main actors and actresses present in the talk show, and we will remember whom they played in the series.
