Party of Five Turns 20: Where is the Cast Now?

at . Comments

Twenty years ago today, a show that could challenge Parenthood for most Kleenex required per episode premiered on Fox.

It introduced viewers to a baby-faced Scott Wolf, Lacey Chabert before she became so "fetch," Matthew Fox before he crashed on an island and Jennifer Love Hewitt before she whispered with ghosts.

Party of Five was meant to be a tween drama along the lines of Beverly Hills, 90210, but it ended up being a sweet, sentimental, tear-jerking family series that dealt with real-life issues such as death, teenage sex and alcoholism.

It even won the Golden Globe for Best Drama in 1996.

And I absolutely loved it. I passed around a petition my sophomore year of high school to stave off its elimination. I had a poster of Hewitt on my bedroom wall in college. I had issues.

So I had to honor the series in some way on its 20th anniversary. Below, we take fans back to the beginning and to present day, asking: the Party of Five cast... where are they now?
