The Bunkers are back — quite literally. Marisa Tomei, Woody Harrelson, Ellie Kemper and Ike Barinholtz are all set to reprise their roles for ABC’s second “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” remake of a classic “All in the Family” episode.

Joining them are Kevin Bacon, Jesse Eisenberg and Justina Machado. A person with knowledge of the plans for them tells TheWrap that their roles will be kept secret until the live performance on Wednesday, Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Lest you forgot, Harrelson plays Archie Bunker, Tomei is Edith, Ellie is Gloria Stivic and Barinholtz is Meathead. They took on those roles in the May version, which was a hit for ABC.

This time, the second half of the Jimmy Kimmel-Norman Lear event will be a live remake of a “Good Times” episode. That talent will be announced at a later date, ABC said on Wednesday.

“Live in Front of a Studio Audience: ‘All in the Family’ and ‘Good Times'” will be produced by Kimmelot, ACT III Productions, Gary Sanchez Productions, D’Arconville, Simpson Street and Sony Pictures Television. Lear, Kimmel, Brent Miller, Kerry Washington, Will Ferrell, Justin Theroux and Jim Burrows will executive produce, with Pam Fryman and Andy Fisher set to direct the live show.

The May event was nominated for three Emmys, winning the one for Outstanding Variety Special (Live). Check out that live special’s live (plus same day) ratings here.
