Norman Lear has said that he is very excited for the reboot and that he encouraged the cast to make the characters their own. They will not be aiming to recreate these incredible characters just like the original cast did, because well, that would be impossible! We hope that they do the characters justice though!

Learn what a producer has to say about the special

According to Entertainment Weekly, Brent Miller (Norman Lear’s producing partner and executive producer of the special) said, “Norman and Jimmy have been very clear to the cast that they understand that these are big shoes to fill, and they want them to feel comfortable creatively. They have really, over and over again, insisted that they do not try and replicate these roles or become Jean Stapleton or Carroll O’Connor. That they take on these roles as who they feel Archie and Edith are, or George and Weezy.”

What do you think about the actors that they cast to play the characters from All in the Family and The Jeffersons? Will you be watching it live in a few days?
