While the last episode of the Brady Bunch classic television show aired almost fifty years ago, the fictional family remains as tight-knit as they were on the show. For instance, the “Peter Brady” actor Christopher Knight posted a picture of all of the Bradys having dinner together. Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), and Susan Olsen (Cindy) were all in attendance. However, Mike Lookland (Bobby) and Eve Plumb (Jan) along with a couple of others did not attend.
“Dinner last night at Basta with family,” Christopher Knight said in his Instagram post. “Missing Tina, Mike, Kelly, @theeveplumb and Ken.”
Unfortunately, not all of the original Brady Bunch cast still lives today. Parents Mike and Carol played by Robert Reed and Florence Henderson have passed away. However, Knight had a solid showing of his former television family show up to the meal.
While the whole cast did not make it to this particular dinner, they have appeared together with all living members of Brady Bunch in the past. For instance, HGTV hosted them in a Very Brady Reunion in 2019 where the cast joked around together and reenacted some scenes.
The Brady Bunch Can’t Escape their Roles
While Eve Plumb may not have been present at the reunion dinner, she cannot escape her role as Jan on Brady Bunch. However, she certainly doesn’t mind the attention–IF it gets her in the door. And honestly, who wouldn’t love the recognition?
On the other hand, Eve was only eleven years old when she was cast in Brady Bunch. So we understand why she might want recognition for her more mature roles. For instance, she appeared in the 1988 film I’m Gonna Git You Sucka as Kalinga’s wife. However, she rarely gets recognized for that role with the same frequency as Jan from Brady Bunch.
Either way, it’s always a pleasure to see the gang back together, whether it’s all of them or just a few of them. Hopefully, we will see more fun family reunions of Brady Bunch moving forward. We may not get the full fun of the dinner scenes in the show, but we will happily take what we can get.
