The variety show will come back as two half-hour specials in the Spring of 2012. The specials will serve as a trial run for a possible full season.
Keenen Ivory Wayans, the original show's star and creator, will serve as host and executive producer this time around. The new version of 'In Living Color' will feature a new cast of comedic talents.
After the jump, enjoy a video of Jim Carrey impersonating Vanilla Ice in a classic 'In Living Color' sketch.
Just as notable, the show became a launching pad for everyone from Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx to then-choreographer Rosie Perez and Jennifer Lopez (the latter earning her first high-profile job as one of the show's "Fly Girls").
To commemorate the anniversary, we take a look back at some of the best musical parodies the show had to offer. And good luck not getting nostalgic -- or rueful -- of the '90s if you remember these.
Well, sort of. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Foxx is teaming with former 'In Living Color' writers Fax Bahr and Adam Small to develop a new "urban-flavored sketch-comedy show" for Fox.
Foxx, of course, rose to super-stardom thanks to his role on 'In Living Color,' which ran from 1990-1994, while Bahr and Small went on to create Fox's seminal sketch series 'MADtv.'
The cha-cha's kind of rough without Julianne Hough.
No, those are not new lyrics to Julianne's latest country single, but our way of emphasizing major 'Dancing With the Stars' news: Hough, dancing veteran on the show, will not be returning for its 10th season.
Hough confirmed the news Tuesday morning on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, saying "I'm not [going back] next season. But I love that show."
As for season 11, Hough added "we're going to cross that bridge when we get to that."
But this isn't any old list – our Top 40 TV Shows of the '90s is just the first in a new series of countdowns in which we'll put our AOL Television seal of approval on the top 40 series of every decade.
Every other month we'll tackle another decade, going all the way back to the '50s, to recall the best comedies (hello 'Lucy'), the best prime-time soaps (do you remember who shot JR?), the best cop shows, animated series and groundbreaking TV shows.
So kick off 50 years of silver-screen bests with the greatest shows of the '90s, including everyone from 'Beavis,' 'Buffy' and 'Simpsons' to 'Freaks and Geeks' and teens on the 'Creek.'

The original version of Star Trek has been a show with two faces. On the one face, it was a serious show that dramatized the good and glorious future we humans could have after we screwed everything up (though, with so many wars going on around the galaxy, how good and glorious could it be?). On the other face, at least to some, it was a campy science fiction show that featured poor special effects, bad acting, and tunics that really didn't hold up to space travel too well.
Since the show left the airwaves in 1969, that second face is the one that television shows throughout the decades have parodied. Whether it be the original series itself, or the subsequent movies, or the conventions that sprung up from this show that lasted only 79 episodes. Shows both animated and live-action have found ways to skewer the show's, and its fans', good intentions. After the jump you'll find a few examples of those parodies either to laugh with or be angry at.
The new show, Never Better, is being directed by Marc Buckland (My Name Is Earl, Ed) and centers on another family man, only in this incarnation, Damon is a guy who's struggling to be a good father and spouse despite his flaws and mistakes.
