Orrah and cast of ‘A Different World’

*Oprah Winfrey‘s “Where Are They Now?” is returning with all new episodes on Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014.

And she’s interviewing some mega stars for the upcoming season. Fans will get to know what’s going on with the cast of the hit sitcom, “A Different World” as well as what Raven Symone and Vivica A. Fox are up to.

“A Different World” came on the scene in the late 1980s as a spinoff to “The Cosby Show” when folks didn’t know that much about life at historically black colleges/universities. And series gave an accurate portrayal of not life for young black scholars, but college-aged folks altogether.

The show’s executive producer Debbie Allen with stars (and Hillman alum)  Cree Summer (Freddie Brooks), Dawn Lewis (Jalessa Taylor),  Sinbad (Coach Oakes), Darryl M. Bell (Ron Johnson), Jasmine Guy (Whitley Gilbert) and Kadeem Hardison (Dwayne Wayne) talked with Oprah about what they’ve been up to since the series ended two decades ago.

The new season might be returning on October 5, but fans will have to wait until Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 to watch the cast of “A Different World” sit down with the Queen of Talk.

But speaking of sitcoms, the stars of “A Different World” aren’t the only former sitcoms stars that sat down with Oprah and talk about where they are in their lives.
