See A 'Family Matters' Cast Reunion In Lifetime's Flight Before Christmas

We will probably never get a Family Matters reunion, although if the Full House sequel/spin-off tv series Fuller House does big numbers, you never know. So for now, the closest thing we’ll get to a Family Matters reunion is the Lifetime television movie Flight Before Christmas that premieres this weekend.

The made-for-tv movie features Reginald VelJohnson (best known as  Carl Winslow on Family Matters or Sgt. Al Powell in the early Die Hard films) and his former television wife Jo Marie Payton (who played Harriette Winslow). As you may have guessed from the title of the movie, the story follows a woman (played by Mayim Bialik of The Big Bang Theory an) who gets dumped by her boyfriend right before the holidays and meets a guy (Ryan McPartlin of Chuck) on a flight home for Christmas. Watch the Flight Before Christmas trailer now embedded after the jump.
