‘Good Times’ animated series is coming to Netflix

Netflix will get an animated revival of the 1970s comedy “Good Times” from Carl Jones, Seth MacFarlane, and Stephen Curry.

CBS ran the original comedy from 1974 to 1979 for six seasons. Television's first black two-parent family sitcom. Norman Lear created the program on the Evans family, who lived in a disadvantaged black Chicago area.

Jones updated the Evans family from the 1970s to the 2020s, according to the news announcement. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane and Curry executive produce the adult-animated series.

According to the news announcement, Lear, Brent Miller (Act III Productions), Erick Peyton and Jeron Smith (Unanimous Media), and Erica Huggins (Fuzzy Door) are executive Sony Pictures TV makes.

The show 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.

This is the official summary: An animated reboot of Norman Lear follows cab driver Reggie and his wife, the ever-aspirational Beverly, as they struggle to survive in one of Chicago's last housing projects with their teenage artist son, Junior, activist daughter Grey, and drug-dealing infant son, Dalvin.

More changes, more stays the same, and keeping your head above water in a knee-on-your-neck system is harder than ever. The only thing harder than life is love, but this family has enough.

Netflix will release all 10 episodes Friday, April 12.
