In addition to The Jeffersons, All in the Family will get a live reboot episode on the same night. On deck for All in the Family is Woody Harrelson playing Archie Bunker and Marisa Tomei playing Edith Bunker.
Both specials Live In Front Of A Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All In The Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons’ are set to air on ABC on May 22nd starting at 8pm ET. We just hope they keep both of the original theme songs for these reboots because they were so iconic! Will you be watching?
