Everybody hates Chris—even in animated form.
A reimagined animated version of sitcom Everybody Hates Chris—which ran for four seasons from 2005 to 2009—called Everybody Still Hates Chris is coming to Paramount+ and Comedy Central, E! News confirms.
The animated series is similarly inspired by the teenage years of Chris Rock, who returns as narrator and executive producer.
Everybody Still Hates Chris, according to MTV Studios, will chronicle Rock’s “experiences growing up as a skinny nerd in a large working class family in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, during the late 1980s.”
The original live-action series, which starred Abbott Elementary’s Tyler James Williams as Rock, was set from 1982 to 1987. The cast also included Terry Crews, Tichina Arnold, Tequan Richmond, Imani Hakim and Vincent Martella.
Other than Rock’s narrating duties, an additional voice cast has not been announced.
“Chris Rock is one of the most gifted comedians of all time and we’re excited to partner with him, 3 Arts and CBS Studios to bring this to life,” said Chris McCarthy, President/CEO, Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios, “and welcome it as the next big hit in our expanding arsenal of iconic adult animation that includes smash series such as South Park and the new Beavis and Butt-Head.”
