The Lawrence Boys Are Back And We're Definitely Feeling The Brotherly Love
The three Lawrence brothers were some of the biggest stars of the 90s. Joey, Matthew and Andrew each starred in some pretty iconic shows and movies over the years, and now they are coming back to TV together!
The eldest, Joey, starred in Blossom and made everyone swoon in his ripped jeans and flannels. Matthew played Robin Williams' son in Mrs. Doubtfire before joining the cast of Boy Meets World. Andrew was lucky enough to be in the first Mr. Bean movie and also he voiced TJ in Recess!
The Lawrence brothers previously worked together on a show called Brotherly Love, but each has had a successful career out side of this.
Joey Lawrence has kept busy since Blossom and Brotherly Love ended, with shows like American Dreams, Run of the House, and Half & Half. He also went on to star in the show Melissa & Joey, with fellow 90s TV alum Melissa Joan Hart.
Matthew Lawrence finished up Brotherly Love before he got started on Boy Meets World, and has kept busy ever since. He was in a bunch of movies including The Hot Chick and The Comebacks, and has also joined his brother on Melissa & Joey for a few episodes.
Andrew Lawrence starred in Brotherly Love with his brothers early in his career. Immediately after he was in Bean, the Mr. Bean feature film. He then went on to voice T.J. Detweiler in Recess and star in shows like Oliver Beene, Runaway, and United States of Tara. Most recently he has been appearing in Hawaii Five-0.
The brothers announced their show and it's pretty exciting to think they will all be back on the screen together.

The Lawrence brothers have started shooting the pilot for their new show which they say will be a comedy about three brothers, but more grown up than their original sitcom.
Joey said that "We are making the show that we want to make, which is a single camera, half-hour, edgy comedy. Super funny. Lots of heart, but super funny," he says to Bustle. "We've got an Emmy award-winning writer that is killing it, and we are deep into the production of the pilot ... It's very exciting for us. It's been a long time but we just wanted to do it our way."
They haven't officially announced what channel the show is going to be airing on, but rumors say that it will be on "Pop". Pop currently airs other comedies like Hollywood Darlings and Return of the Mac so it would fit!
They are excited to try a new avenue without all the restrictions that being a show for teens had. Joey said that "We were in the confines of strict network guidelines, it was a whole different era back then of what they would allow us to do."
He explained that "We had to sugarcoat everything and wrap it all up. It's a different age now, thank god, in that regard. We can really have fun. And we're grown-ass men, so it's fun to really do it at this point where we can talk about things that are really going on."
So exciting that all these boys will be reunited on TV in a comedy that hopefully fit their audience! Will you be watching?
