The sixth season of Good Times opened with a three-part story (later edited as a four-parter for syndication), in which Esther Rolle returns to the series in the role of Florida Evans. Minus her second husband, Carl (whose absence is never explained, nor is Carl ever referred to again), Florida leaves her Arizona home to return to the Evans family apartment in Chicago, where daughter Thelma (BernNadette Stanis) is preparing to marry Heisman Trophy-winning football player Keith Anderson (Ben Powers, in his first series appearance). In addition to serving as the season opener, "Florida's Homecoming" represented Good Times' schedule change from Tuesday to Saturday night.
