My Wife and Kids is easily one of the best Black sitcoms from the early 2000s, and luckily, we can all go back and re-watch the entire series since it's now on Netflix!

Created by Don Reo and Damon Wayans, My Wife and Kids premiered on ABC in March 2001 and had a series run of five seasons before coming to an end in May 2005. It starred Emmy-nominated actor Damon Wayans as a successful trucking company executive named Michael Kyle Sr who tries his best to be the best husband and father he can be to his wife and their three kids.

Joining Wayans in the main cast were Tisha Campbell, George O. Gore II, Jennifer Freeman, and Parker McKenna Posey. But where is everyone now in 2024? It's been quite some time since My Wife and Kids ended its run, so you might be wondering where the cast is today. No worries! We shared an update on where the cast is now and their current ages below.
