‘Good Times’ Animated Series is Coming to Netflix | Watch Trailer

*An animated reboot of the 1970s sitcom “Good Times” is coming to Netflix from creator Carl Jones, Seth MacFarlane, and NBA star Stephen Curry.

The original sitcom aired for six seasons on CBS from 1974 to 1979. It was television’s first African American two-parent family sitcom. Norman Lear produced the show, which centered on the Evans family, who lived in a poor, black neighborhood in inner-city Chicago.

Jones modernized the setting, transitioning the Evans family from the 1970s to the 2020s, according to the news release. Curry and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane are executive producers on the adult-animated series.

Per the news release, executive producers include Lear, Brent Miller (Act III Productions), Erick Peyton and Jeron Smith with Unanimous Media, and Erica Huggins (Fuzzy Door). Sony Pictures Television produces.

The series stars J.B. Smoove (Reggie Evans), Yvette Nicole Brown (Beverly Evans), Jay Pharoah (Junior Evans), Marsai Martin (Grey Evans), Gerald “Slink” Johnson (Dalvin Evans) and Rashida “Sheedz” Olayiwola (Lashes by Lisa). 

Here’s the official synopsis: An animated reboot of the Norman Lear series finds the latest generation of the Evans family, cab driver Reggie and his wife, the ever-aspirational Beverly, scratching and surviving in one of the last remaining housing projects in Chicago along with their teenage artist son, Junior, activist daughter Grey, and drug dealing infant son, Dalvin. It turns out the more things change the more they stay the same and keeping your head above water in a system with its knee on your neck is as challenging as ever. The only thing tougher than life is love, but in this family, there’s more than enough to go around.

Watch the trailer above.

All ten episodes will be available on Netflix Friday, April 12.
