Party of Five was one of the seminal television shows of the ’90s. In addition to being a massive hit for FOX, the show spawned the careers of several world-famous actors. Some of them went on to film careers, while others continued to make their mark on TV.

Since Freeform is rebooting the series for modern audiences, we figure now would be a perfect time to catch up with the original Party of Five cast and see where they are today.


Scott Wolf – Bailey Salinger

Scott Wolf played Bailey, the second-oldest of the Salinger family. He rose to fame following the show’s first season, and IMDb lists that he was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for his performance in 1999. Since then, Wolf, 51, has continued to find work on acclaimed television shows.

He played Dr. Jake Hartman during the last two seasons of Everwood, and Dr. Scott Clemmens on the NBC medical drama The Night Shift. In 2019, TV Line announced that Wolf was cast on the CW series Nancy Drew. He plays Carson Drew, a criminal defense attorney and the father of the main character.

Wolf has been married to Kelley Marie Limp since 2004, and People reports that they have 3 children.


Neve Campbell – Julia Salinger

Neve Campbell became a movie star while she was still on Party of Five. She was cast in the horror classic Scream (1996) during the show’s third season, and would go on to reprise her role in three sequels. Campbell’s other notable films during this period include the drama 54 and the erotic thriller Wild Things (both 1998).

Campbell, 46, has continued to land high-profile films and television shows. She starred opposite Dwayne Johnson in the action blockbuster Skyscraper (2018) and had a recurring role on the Netflix political drama House of Cards (2016-17).

According to People, Campbell has 2 children with longtime boyfriend and actor J.J. Field.

Fox was the protagonist of all six seasons, during which time he earned Golden Globe, Emmy and Satellite Award nominations.

Since Lost ended in 2010, Fox has made sporadic appearances in film and television. His most notable films include the zombie drama World War Z (2013) and the acclaimed western Bone Tomahawk (2015). IMDb reports that Fox has been married to Margherita Ronchi since 1992, and they have 2 children.

She found success while she was still on the show, appearing in the box office hits I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and Can’t Hardly Wait (both 1998). Hewitt continued to land lucrative work on film and television after the show was cancelled.
