A week in advance of Party of Five‘s premiere on Freeform, Hulu has made the first episode available to watch. Party of Five is a reboot of the classic 1994 drama series about siblings forced to rely on each other in the absence of their parents, but with a modern twist. Instead of the siblings being forced to band together in the wake of their parents’ deaths in a car accident, the new show features the parents deported as a result of immigration policies.
