WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW!!

An American sitcom sequel to the original ABC 1976–79 sitcom What's Happening!! focusing on its main characters as adults. It aired in first-run broadcast syndication from September 7, 1985, to March 26, 1988, and, like the previous series, What's Happening Now!! is loosely based on the motion picture Cooley High (written by Eric Monte and directed by Michael Schultz).

Series basis
In the series, Roger "Raj" Thomas (played by Ernest Thomas) has become a fledgling writer. He bought half of the restaurant Rob's Place (renamed Rob's) and was running the business with Shirley (Shirley Hemphill), making money for himself and his new wife Nadine (Anne-Marie Johnson), who was a social worker. Dwayne (Haywood Nelson) has become a computer programmer, and Rerun (Fred Berry) a used-car salesman. Raj and Nadine live in Raj's childhood home while Rerun and Dwayne share an apartment.

The antics and sarcastic one-liners were reminiscent of the first series. Raj's little sister Dee (Danielle Spencer) showed up on a sporadic basis in guest spots, with the explanation that she had gone away to college. Raj and Nadine also became foster parents to a young girl named Carolyn Williams, played by Reina King (sister of actress Regina King), who displayed the sass that was seen in Dee when she was younger.

Second season
By the second season, both Fred Berry and Reina King left the series. The writers wrote Carolyn out of the series by saying she had moved in with an aunt she didn't know she had.

Berry's departure, however, was more acrimonious. After the first season, Berry went to the producers and asked for a significant raise. Due to the popularity of his character, Berry believed he was the only reason viewers tuned in every week and that it should be reflected in his salary. Berry quit the series when the producers would not accede to his demands, and in retaliation the writers removed Rerun from the series continuity altogether (a practice referred to as "Chuck Cunningham syndrome", where a character is dropped from a series and then treated as if he/she never existed).[1] Rerun was seen in flashbacks during the second-season episode "The Yard Sale," however, and was mentioned by name. Berry's widow, Essie Berry, told Urbanite magazine at Georgia State University that their unwillingness to pay Fred Berry his due in both shows led to their early cancellations.

Third (final) season
During the third season, the series introduced a pair of characters that harkened back to the original incarnation of What's Happening!!. Maurice Warfield (Martin Lawrence) was a teenager who spent his afternoons as a busboy at Rob's under the supervision of Shirley and Raj while his best friend Darryl (Ken Sagoes) hung out with him. Together, they had many misadventures not unlike the original trio of Raj, Dwayne, and Rerun.

SEASON 2 and SEASON 3 have never had an official release and the second half of SEASON 3 has never been shown in syndication.

"The quality of this is astounding. The final 2 seasons look just as good as the first season. The menus are professional looking and are uniform with the season 1 release." Michael Shipman - Friday, June 26, 2020
