Martin: The Reunion is a 90-minute special airing on BET+. Special guests will include Snoop Dogg, Brian McKnight, Le’Andria Johnson, Reginald Ballard, Tracy Morgan, Tommy Davidson, Marla Gibbs, and Sean Lampkin.
Martin ran for five seasons on Fox. Lawrence and his co-stars played a slew of different characters and inspired an entire generation of fans. The impact of the show is still felt today. In fact, drag queen Monet x Change played one of Lawrence’s characters from the sitcom while playing “Snatch Game” on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 7 in the May 20 episode. From the active fanbase to those clamoring for a reboot, it looks like Martin: The Reunion will have an easy time bringing in viewers.
“To be able to sit here thirty years later with this amazing cast that has had such an impact on pop culture is truly a blessing,” Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly. “I am always humbled that the fans still want more of the show and its characters. I am looking forward to the reunion special.”
Martin Lawrence executive produces the special along with Jesse Collins, Stan Lathan, Robert Lawrence, Rae Proctor, Stacy Lyles, Dionne Harmon, Jeannae Rouzan-Clay, Robi Reed, and Tiffany Williams, with Bentley Kyle Evans serving as co-executive producer and Brittany Brazil serving as producer.
