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.Originally Written By Epic Dope
