Netflix has announced an animated reboot of the classic sitcom, “Good Times.” 

Deadline reports JB Smoove, Yvette Nicole Brown, Jay Pharoah, Marsai Martin, Slink Johnson, and Rashida “Sheedz” Olayiwola will voice the characters of the animated reboot co-created by Ranada Shepard and Carl Jones (“The Boondocks“). 

The animated “Good Times” series finds the fourth generation of the Evans family living in apartment 17C of the last remaining housing projects in Chicago.

It turns out the more things change the more they stay the same and keeping your head above water is as challenging as ever.

The only thing tougher than life for this family is love, and there’s more than enough to go around.

The original “Good Times” was a spinoff of Norman Lear’s “Maude,” which was a spinoff of “All in the Family.” 

The series, created by Mike Evans and Eric Monte was television’s first sitcom featuring an African American two-parent family. 

Deadline exclusively reported the late Norman Lear will guest star in the first episode of the animated reboot.

Netflix has not confirmed a release date for the “Good Times” animated reboot, but it is expected to arrive sometime in the Summer of 2024.
