The two played father and son on Wayans Jr. former show Happy Together.

One of our favorite television dads is gearing up for a return to primetime and he’s bringing one of his children with him!

Damon Wayans and his son Damon Wayans Jr. are set to star in a multi-camera father-son comedy series for CBS according to Deadline. The plot for the show follows “a legendary talk radio host and happily divorced “Poppa” (Damon Wayans) who has to drag his grown son (Damon Wayans Jr.), who has all his charm and none of his drive, kicking and screaming into adulthood before he turns 40.”

This marks Wayans’ return to network comedy. He previously starred on the hit ABC family comedy series My Wife & Kids with Tisha Campbell. His son appeared on the network as well, finding his own success on the comedy series Happy Endings, which lasted three seasons.

The father and son duo appeared onscreen together once in the past on Wayans Jr. CBS series Happy Together where they played father and son.

The upcoming CBS series is co-written by Damon Wayans and former Last Man Standing executive producer Kevin Hench with both Wayans executive producing the series.

No word on when to expect the series to premiere but we’re anticipating the series to be full of laughs.
