Remember Johnson Family Vacation? The hilarious on-screen family will get a sequel thanks to FOX Searchlight and DeVon Franklin. And Cedric The Entertainer is returning! The original film starred the comedian, Vanessa Williams, Shad ‘Bow Wow’ Moss, Solange Knowles and Gabby Soleil, as a family trying to bond again on a cross-country road trip to their family reunion.

14 years later Johnson Family Celebration will reportedly, “pick up nearly two decades after the events of the original film, and will see the return of Cedric the Entertainer as Nate Johnson, the well-meaning patriarch of the Johnson family that embarked on an ill-fated cross-country road trip.” The movie also starred Steve Harvey, DeRay Davis, Jennifer Freeman (My Wife & Kids), Shari Headly (Coming To America) and Lisa Bonet’s husband, Jason Momoa.

Franklin’s production company will produce the sequel. There’s no word on if any of the original cast members besides Cedric will reprise their roles.
