BACK TO THE FUTURE: ABC Orders a Live-Action Remake of Classic Cartoon ‘The Jetsons’

Get ready to meet George Jetson and family — again.

George, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy and Jane his wife are set to return to the small screen in ABC’s new, live-action adaptation of the classic cartoon, the network confirmed.

The multi-camera sitcom — about a modern family living in a world of robots, holograms and flying cars — will be set 100 years in the future and will capture the iconic family through a modern filter.

The characters will be based on the Hanna-Barbera classic that originally ran from 1962-1963.

This marks the second time the Jetson family will make a return to TV. Following the show’s original run in the ’60s and subsequent years of syndication, the show returned with new episodes in 1985, and continued to air new material until 1989, when stars George O’Hanlon and Mel Blanc died.

The updated version will feature Gary Janetti (“Family Guy,” “Will & Grace”) as executive producer and writer, and Robert Zemeckis (“Back to the Future”), Jack Rapke (“Cast Away”) and Jackie Levine as executive producers.

“The Jetsons” is just the latest classic show to get a reboot. Will you be tuned in?
