Comedy Central has officially announced that Chris Rock, Terry Crews and Tichina Arnold will reprise their roles and return to star in the Everybody Hates Chris adult animated series reboot, titled Everybody Still Hates Chris.

New cast members include Tim Johnson Jr., Ozioma Akagha, Terrence Little Gardenhigh, and Gunnar Sizemore.

The series, first announced in 2021, is from CBS Studios, Chris Rock Enterprises and 3 Arts Entertainment. The half-hour series will premiere on Comedy Central later this year.

“I’m very excited to introduce the world to another funny side of my childhood,” said Rock in a statement.

“I wanted this job to get free tickets to a Chris Rock stand up show, but we ended up making something we’re proud of that is true to the original series we all loved,” said Sanjay Shah, showrunner and executive producer.

Here’s the official description of where we find the characters:

Everybody Still Hates Chris will feature Chris Rock as “Adult Chris,” narrating stories inspired by his experience growing up as a skinny nerd in a large working-class family in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, during the late 1980s.  Terry Crews will voice “Julius,” Chris’ father who is a gentle giant with a relentless work ethic, and cheap. He grew up dirt poor, so he knows the cost of everything down to the penny. He works two jobs to support the family, and on his days off, he takes on a third job. Tichina Arnold will voice “Rochelle,” Chris’ mother who is smart, strong-willed, and has a nurturing spirit, but she can also be hot-headed, especially when it comes to her kids. She tolerates zero nonsense, so she quits more jobs in a month than most people do in a lifetime.

Tim Johnson Jr. will voice “Young Chris,” a nerd who wants to be cool but he’s outshined by his younger brother, tortured by his little sister, and foiled by his cheapskate dad; Ozioma Akagha will voice “Tonya,” Chris’ feisty baby sister, with the face of an angel and the heart of a demon, who gets along with her middle brother Drew but leaps at any chance to get Chris in trouble; Terrence Little Gardenhigh will voice “Drew,” the golden child of the family who is the epitome of Black Excellence: handsome, athletic, a ladies man, taller and cooler than his older brother Chris; and Gunnar Sizemore will voice “Greg,” Chris’s only friend at school who is girl-obsessed, status conscious and raised by a single dad.

The original series ran for four seasons on UPN then the CW from 2005 to 2009 it was nominated for Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Awards.    

The reboot is produced by CBS’ Eye Animation Productions.

Rock, Shah, original series co-creator Ali LeRoi and Michael Rotenberg and Dave Becky of 3 Arts Entertainment executive produce. Titmouse is the animation studio for the series, with Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio and Ben Kalina serving as executive producers.
