Keenen Ivory Wayans is bringing back ’90s favorite “In Living Color,” working with Fox for two half-hour specials set to run during the network’s 25th anniversary celebration, according to Deadline.com.

If the specials are a ratings success, the network would bring back the series full-time, with an all-new cast that would join the regular schedule next season.

The series helped propel fame for such stars as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier, and Jennifer Lopez (one of the dancing fly girls) as well as Wayans and family members Damon, Shawn, Kim and Marlon.

The series ended its run in May 1994 after 5 seasons and frequent battles with Fox censors over some of the sketches.
