Martin: The Reunion Trailer Teases “Wazzup” with the Cast After

Wazzup, Wazzup, WAZZUP?!!

Cue that ’90s nostalgia because BET+ is hitting us right in the heart with a long-awaited Martin: The Reunion, a special for the hit classic series.

It’s been 30 years in the making!

Martin: The Reunion

Sadly we’re down one key cast member after the tragic death of Tommy Ford. However, for the first time in three decades, the cast will come together to reminisce, relive some of their favorite moments, and commemorate one of the most pivotal and influential series in modern Black TV culture.

Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Tichina Arnold, and Carl Anthony Payne II will settle in on the iconic living room set of the series and relive some of their glory days with what was and remains a Black cultural juggernaut series.

Martin - The Series

Comedian Affion Crockett will host the 90-minute special, and it’ll have some surprise guest appearances, special musical performances, and loads of behind-the-scenes commentary.

Anyone who remembers when the series aired in its glory day can recall how Martin was universally adored and lauded.

Martin was one of FOX’s highest-rated series from ’92-97.

It was also a mecca for many other popular figures at the time. It was nothing to see cameos and guest appearances by famous athletes like Shaq, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Thomas Hearns.

It also featured models like Beverly Johnson, iconic actors like Sherman Hemsley, and fellow comedians like Chris Rock and Tommy Davidson.

Martin’s titular character of the same name was a disc jockey. It evolved in the business, so it was also common for the series to feature and have a plethora of cameos from musical appearances.

From R&B to Hip Hop to Gospel, some of the biggest musicians would drop by during episodes. Notorious B.I.G, Babyface, Snoop Dogg, Method Man, Boyz II Men, Bebe and Cece Winans, and more appeared whenever.

In addition to the stellar cast, great characters, and comedy, the excitement over recognizable faces dropping by was some of the series’ strongest appeals.

Martin: The Reunion will bring back some of that with special appearances and guest stars.

It’ll also explore some of Martin’s many characters in the series, famously the iconic Sheneneh Jenkins, who fans probably recall the most. There’s also Edna Payne (Martin’s mother), Ol ‘Otis, Jerome (the Pimp), and a snot-nosed, precocious kid named Roscoe, and more.

The cast will also take time to give a tribute and honor Tommy, played by the late actor Tommy Mikal Ford.
