Netflix has released the trailer for the animated reboot of Norman Lear’s beloved sitcom “Good Times” which hails from executive producer Seth MacFarlane and showrunner Ranada Shepard.

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.

They reside there along with their teenage artist son, Junior, activist daughter Grey, and drug dealing infant son, Dalvin.

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.

The voice cast for the new series includes J.B. Smoove (Reggie), Yvette Nicole Brown (Beverly), Jay Pharoah (Junior), Marsai Martin (Grey), Gerald ‘Slink’ Johnson (Dalvin) and Rashida ‘Sheedz’ Olayiwola (Lashes by Lisa).

The late Lear has given his blessing for the series and remains credited as an executive producer alongside Brent Miller, Steph Curry, Erick Peyton, Jeron Smith, Erica Huggins and MacFarlane.

The ten-episode first season will debut on Netflix on April 12th.
