Johnny Galecki played young Russ in the film and got his big break after the movie premiered. Now, he is mainly known for his roles in Roseanne and The Big Bang Theory. He recently reunited with Chevy Chase, Diane Ladd, Beverly D’Angelo, and Juliette Lewis at the screening.
A Griswolds spin-off show is coming to HBO Max
In addition to this amazing reunion, it has been confirmed that a Griswolds spin-off television series is in early development. It will premiere on the new streaming service, HBO Max. Johnny is working on the show as an executive producer. Writer Tim Hobert will be writing the scripts. He has also worked on shows such as Scrubs, Community, and The Middle.
Reportedly, the show will follow the Griswolds in modern-day, who still live in Chicago. No word on if any of the original cast will be back to play their former roles. We will keep you posted as more information comes out!
