BET+ has announced a cast reunion special this summer to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the former Fox comedy “Martin.” Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold and Carl Anthony Payne II are set to appear, with other guests to be announced later. The series ran from 1992 to 1997.
The special, hosted by Affion Crockett and produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment, will feature interviews with cast members and directors, musical performances and commentary on the show’s impact and legacy.
“’Martin’ is one of the most beloved sitcoms in our community, both because it is hugely entertaining and because it played a pivotal role in changing the narrative of Black voices in entertainment and in culture through the portrayal of young, ambitious Black leads and healthy Black relationships,” said BET CEO Scott Mills in a statement. “Decades later, that representation is still just as important, which is why we’re so excited to honor a series that put Black culture front and center on our platform that embraces Black culture every day.”
