Everybody Hates Chris is making a TV comeback, with the recent big news that it's coming to streaming. After much speculation, original series creator and narrator Chris Rock has signed on to the remake of Everybody Still Hates Chris. He had previously revealed the following:
The SNL alum took to his Instagram account to share both the news and his reaction with his followers, and the response is worth recognizing.
There was nothing else that Rock could have said about the program that was not included in the initial report, which stated that he will return as the series' narrator but also as the executive producer. It's nice to know that Chris Rock will remain a regular participant in the new show, like the original comedy.
Everybody Hates Chris' adult version was first announced in 2021. At the time, it was unclear whether or not the comedy legend would be interested in the animated series. However, the new series will continue to develop following Chris Rocks' teenage years growing up in a working-class family in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
The original cast of the popular workplace sitcom Abbott Elementary is yet to be confirmed. It's possible that the original cast will reprise their roles or if a new cast will voice the whole Rock family.
Terry Crews and Tichina Arnold are currently developing Americas Got Talent and the CBS sitcom The Neighborhood, respectively. TV sister Imani Hakim is currently starring in the Apple TV+ comedy Mythic Quest, which is returning for a second season. Fans will have to wait to see if they will reprise their roles in the animated series.
Everybody Still Hates Chris will be released on Paramount+ and Comedy Central, while Paramount is using the same strategy for Mike Judges' newest season of Beavis and Butthead, splitting the South Park brand between traditional seasons and streaming films one day.
