Janet Hubert, the original portrayer of Aunt Viv, is also set to return. Hubert departed the show mid-way through the series following an ongoing feud with Smith, and was replaced by Maxwell Reid for the latter half. In the reunion special, it is rumoured that Hubert and Smith are set to quash said feud.
