Tichina Arnold Dismisses "Martin" Reboot Rumors


It doesn't look like that ‘Martin' reboot fans were hoping for will happen, but maybe a "rebirth" is likely.

In the early 1990s, television history was made when the hit show "Martin" premiered. The successful series was a fan favorite and starred Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold, Thomas Mikal Ford, and Carl Anthony Payne II. Weekly, the group of friends and lovers, would mesh in comedic banter, and after its final episode aired in 1997, fans cried, wanting more.

Over the years, there have been multiple rumors if the cast would rejoin for a Martin reboot; and back in 2018, there was a glimmer of hope. But, that was quickly dismissed after Tisha and Tichina recently appeared on the Tamron Hall Show. While there, Tamron asked about the possibility of a reboot, and Tichina gave the bad news.

"As Tisha told you, I kinda shoot from the hip," said Tichina. "And uh—it's something that we wanted to happen. We tried very hard to make it happen, but the way it looks to me, realistically, it's not going to happen. Not unless it's an animation. Tisha brought up a great idea to do an animation of it, but I always say, a show can never be rebooted without the original cast."

"Now, we may be able to have a rebirth, maybe," she continued. "But as far as a reboot, I don't think that's gonna happen." Tichina also mentioned Ford, as the beloved actor passed away in 2016. "Tommy's no longer with us; the show is never gonna be the same." It's sad news for Martin fans, but Tichina added, "Some things are best left alone."

While many Martin fanatics are troubled to hear this, like the two renowned stars said, they're always a possibility for a "rebirth" of sorts, so all hope isn't completely lost.
