‘In Living Color’ making comeback

    Eighteen years after "In Living Color" faded to black, the comedy sketch show will return to TV.

    Fox announced Friday that Keenen Ivory Wayans’ show, which ran from 1990 to 1994, is making a brief comeback next year.

    The network revealed that Keenen will host at least two 30-minute "In Living Color" specials next spring. Fox stated that the new shows will offer a modern-day take on the sketch-comedy classic.

    The "In Living Color" update will, therefore, feature a cast of fresh talent. Musical performances and special guests will be thrown into the mix as well. Could that mean some of the original cast members could pop up on the show?

    No exact dates for the return of "In Living Color" have been set at this time.

    "In Living Color" was a major vehicle for the Wayans family members and their various careers, but it also served as the launching pad for such entertainers as Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey and David Alan Grier. Jennifer Lopez and "Dancing With the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba even did stints as Fly Girls.
