Netflix has announced that they are bringing back a new version of the Norman Lear sitcom, which ran on CBS during the 1970’s and 80’s.

Given that some of the other cast members (Pat Harrington and Bonnie Franklin) are no longer with us, that may have been a part of the decision to go simply with a new version. Another reason may simply be that the new series will revolve around a Cuban-American family.
