Good Times’ Remake Coming to ABC in Next ‘Live’ Special


ABC is bringing its Live in Front of a Studio Audience franchise back for the holidays.

The network will air recreated classic episodes of Good Times and All in the Family on Weds., Dec. 18, ABC said in a press release Tuesday.

The live broadcast event follows the network’s popular May special that featured a 90-minute tribute to All in the Family and its spinoff The Jeffersons, produced by Norman Lear and Jimmy Kimmel.

“The holiday season is the perfect time for families to come together and enjoy another Live in Front of a Studio Audience special on ABC,” said ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke. “Only Jimmy and Norman can top what they accomplished the first time. From the superstar talent to the unforgettable music and the richly deserved Emmy win, their collective vision has introduced a whole new generation of people to these groundbreaking and timeless stories.”

Good Times aired for six seasons on CBS from 1974-1979. The series starred Esther Rolle, John Amos, Jimmie Walker, Ja’net DuBois, Ralph Carter, BernNadette Stanis and Janet Jackson. The groundbreaking sitcom was among the first on TV to feature two African-American parents. It was created by Mike Evans, Eric Monte and developed by Norman Lear.


Casting details for the holiday special will be announced at a later date. It’s unclear if the All in the Family portion will feature the same cast from May that included Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker and Marisa Tomei as Edith.

"remake" meaning still set in the 70's?

I can imagine Michael on a Metro PCS posting on boxden whilst hangin in a chow line.

One of the funniest episodes, when Marlon kept doing the hand club and shaking his head as Michael that sh*t was hilarious

The All in the Family/Jeffersons Live was good so I'm all in for this.

They'll probably do a Season 1 episode and have guest appearances, like they did with
All in the Family/Jeffersons and had Florence.

Hoping it's Thelma fine a*s.
