*The revolutionary 90s sketch comedy show “In Living Color” is on its way back to television.
According to reports, the show’s creator, Keenen Ivory Wayans is working with FOX to revive the classic series.
It’ll all begin with two half-hour specials of the original show in 2012 as part of the network’s 25th anniversary celebration. But there’s a bit of a twist. The specials will include new faces and fresh musical performances.
If the shows get a good response, we might be seeing “In Living Color” on a regular basis.
“In Living Color” debuted in 1990 and broke stereotypes by employing a cast of mostly black comedians and introducing hip-hop and dancing to mainstream television. It helped launch the careers of Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier. It ended its run in 1994 after five seasons.
Speaking of Carrey and Foxx, there’s no word yet on whether they will appear on the show, or if Jennifer Lopez (J Lo) will return and do a special appearance as a dancing Fly Girl.
