Good Times Trailer Reveals Just How Adult a Reboot Animated Netflix Series Is

This isn’t your grandma’s Good Times.

Netflix on Wednesday dropped the trailer for its forthcoming animated reboot of Norman Lear’s classic ’70s sitcom Good Times, and it has exec producer Seth MacFarlane’s raunchy fingerprints all over it.

The ‘toon iteration — from writer Ranada Shepard, who also serves as an EP alongside MacFarlane and the late Lear — follows cab driver Reggie (J.B. Smoove), the grandson of John Amos’ character from original sitcom, and his wife, the ever-aspirational Beverly (Yvette Nicole Brown), scratching and surviving in one of the last remaining housing projects in Chicago along with their teenage artist son, Junior (Jay Pharoah), activist daughter Grey (Marsai Martin), and drug dealing infant son, Dalvin (Gerald “Slink” Johnson).

“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,” reads the series’ official description. “The only thing tougher than life is love, but in this family, there’s more than enough to go around.”

All 10 Season 1 episodes are set to drop Friday, April 12.

“It’s a thrill to be partnering with Norman Lear and to help bring new life to his groundbreaking show Good Times,” MacFarlane enthused waaaaay back in Sept. 2020 when the project was first announced. “Animation is the ideal medium with which to reimagine the original show.”
