While this will be Lear’s first animated series, a recent episode of the current remake of Once Day at a Time was animated. An episode of Good Times was recreated in late 2019 as part of ABC’s second Live in Front of a Studio Audience special.
A premiere date and voice cast for the new series were not revealed. The original series aired for six seasons on CBS.
