Patricia Heaton Announces EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND Reunion

By Jessilyn Lancaster, Managing Editor

The Barone family may have lost Frank and Marie, but that won’t stop them from reuniting later this month.

Patricia Heaton, who played Debra Barone in EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, announced that some of the cast will reunite to read six scenes.

Heaton will join series stars Ray Romano, Brad Garrett and Monica Horan, as well as series creator Phil Rosenthal, for the virtual table read to benefit The International Myeloma Foundation. Peter Boyle, who played family patriarch Frank Barone, and Doris Roberts, who played the overbearing mother (in-law), died in recent years.

Boyle died of myeloma in 2006, and the International Myeloma Foundation’s Annual Comedy Celebration began in 2007 as a tribute to the late actor.

The reunion will be streamed on Oct. 23. 

The family sitcom aired for nine seasons from 1996 until 2005. Roberts and Heaton even presented an award at the 2000 Movieguide® Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry.

Heaton is a devout Christian and recently starred in CAROL’S SECOND ACT.
