Finally, the reunion Martin fans have been waiting for is happening! Earlier this year, Martin Lawrence (Martin Payne), Tisha Campbell (Gina), Tichina Arnold (Pam) and Carl Anthony Payne II (Cole) filmed a 30-year reunion special for BET+ on February 20, 2022.
But the cast of the popular series is marking the major milestone without Thomas Mikal Ford, who played Tommy. Sadly, Ford passed away from a ruptured abdominal aneurysm in 2016 at the age of 52. The long-awaited reunion will undoubtedly capture the cast sharing heartfelt memories of their beloved co-star.
This televised Martin reunion is going to be a must-watch for loyal fans. Comedian-actor Affion Crockett will be the host. The show’s line-up includes cast interviews, musical performances, special guest stars and other surprises.
Martin aired on Fox from 1992-1997. Decades later, fans can still get their fix of “Marty- Mar” and the crew in re-runs of all five seasons now on BET+.
Lawrence said in a statement, “To be able to sit here thirty years later with this amazing cast that has had such an impact on pop culture is truly a blessing. I am always humbled that the fans still want more of the show and its characters. I am looking forward to the reunion special.”
