After the success of the May 2019 “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” special featuring “remakes” of episodes of “The Jeffersons” and “All in the Family,” ABC has committed to two more similar specials.

  • The show, from Jimmy Kimmel and Norman Lear, had actors recreating one episode from each of the classic shows.
  • Going forward, ABC is planning to air another one in December for the holidays as well as another in the Spring of 2020.
  • ABC didn’t announce which shows would be recreated, with sources saying much of that will depend on rights.
  • It also isn’t clear if the star studded cast will return for one or both of the upcoming specials.
