After its runaway success (and an Emmy win!) on ABC earlier this year, Live in Front of a Studio Audience is back with segments plucked from episodes of All in the Family and Good Times.

The family comedies of the ’70s are getting a refresh with new casts in familiar roles. In this case, many of the All in the Family cast members from the previous special will return, but there are a few new faces in that lineup, as well as an entirely new cast for Good Times.

Ahead of the December 18 premiere, get acquainted with who is playing who in the next Live in Front of a Studio Audience special. And be sure to tune in beginning at 8/7c on ABC to catch all of the live action.
