Submitted by on October 31, 2011 – 10:06 amNo Comment

Good news for all of you still stuck in the 90s…Fox is reviving the Keenen Ivory Wayans–created sketch-comedy show, In Living Color. The show, which launched the careers of Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez and various members of the Wayans clan, will be hosted by Keenen (just like the original), and will return for two half-hour specials to commemorate Fox’s 25th anniversary. According to Deadline.com, the specials will debut:

“…in midseason with a series option behind them, meaning that in success, the reboot will join Fox’s schedule as a regular series next season. I hear it was Wayans’ idea to revive the popular sketch-comedy series with a new cast. The new In Living Color will be produced by his production company Ivory Way Prods. in association with 20th Century Fox TV’s Fox 21.”

We’re hoping to see with the rebooted version of In Living Color the return of some of our favorite characters from the original, including Homey the Clown (originally played by Damon Wayans), Fire Marshall Bill (originally played by Jim Carrey) and Blaine Edwards and Antoine Merriweather (originally played by Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier), the flamboyant characters of “Men on Film.” This good news deserves “two snaps, a twist and a kiss!” For you young whipper snappers, check out one of the infamous “Men on Film” skits below:
