Rumors have been circulating for a few weeks about a potential reboot of Martin.
Now in a recent interview, one of the show’s leads, Tisha-Campbell-Martin is confirming the news — and says she is involved with it.
She said, “I can’t tell you…It has been an honor to be Gina all these years. So….I can’t tell you guys anything. But it’s very exciting.”
A lot has happened since Martin was on air last. Recently, cast member Thomas “Tommy” Mikal Ford passed away. Then, we can’t forget that the show ended on a sour note behind-the-scenes as Tisha Campbell-Martin sued both Martin Lawrence and the show’s producers for sexual harrassment and verbal and physical assaults, which led to her not appearing in most of the show’s final season. The lawsuit was settled and the actress appeared in the last episodes, but in scenes without Lawrence.
Martin, which aired from 1992-1997, starred Lawrence, Campbell-Martin, Ford, Tichina Arnold and Carl Anthony Payne II.
Campbell-Martin and Arnold reunited in Everybody Hates Chris, in which Arnold starred and Campbell-Martin was a recurring cast member. Campbell-Maritn has been busy in recent years, starring in the recently-canceled ABC sitcom, Dr. Ken, and she starred in a film that recently bowed at Sundance, Blindspotting.
