The classic 70s sitcom will be recreated as an animated Netflix series and 10 episodes have been ordered.

Norman Lear, who developed the original version, is on board for the reboot, along with NBA star Steph Curry and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

Carl Jones has created the new show and will serve as showrunner.

Check out a Twitter announcement for the revival of Good Times below.

While this will be Lear’s first animated series, a recent episode of the current remake of One Day at a Time was animated.

An episode of Good Times was recreated in late 2019 as part of ABC’s second Live in Front of a Studio Audience special.

In this classic sitcom, Florida and James Evans struggle to raise their kids – irrepressible artist JJ, voice-of-reason Thelma, and politically active Michael – in a Chicago housing project.

They have help from wisecracking neighbors, buffoonish building superintendents and friends.

The first episode of the hit show premiered on 8 February 1974. The original series aired for six seasons on CBS till 1980.
