Reportedly, the reunion special takes place on the iconic “Martin” living room set and is hosted by comedian Affion Crockett. BET’s description of the reunion reads:

“The cast will look back on the show’s most hilarious moments, revisit the iconic characters Martin made famous and pay an emotional tribute to the late, great Tommy Ford. Complete with musical performances and drop-ins by celebrity super fans, ‘Martin: The Reunion’ brings back the wazzup wazzup wazzup passion fans have been waiting for.”

“Martin” aired on Fox from 1992 to 1997 and starred Martin Lawrence as Martin Payne, a Detroit DJ for WZUP radio (and later host of a TV show), along with his girlfriend Gina (Tisha Campbell) and their friends Pam (Tichina Arnold), Cole (Carl Anthony Payne), and Tommy (Thomas Mikal Ford). The series became one of the highest-rated and beloved sitcoms of the 90s with reruns still playing on cable networks today. All five seasons are now streaming on BET+ and HBO Max.
