Chronology

Preceded by

Back to the Future Part III

Back to the Future: Back in Time is a science-fiction adventure comedy miniseries that airs on NBC on November 22 to December 27, 2019, on Back to the Future Part II's 30th anniversary. The series is based on the 2010 video game, Back to the Future: The Game.

The series also features the reprised roles of Michael J. Fox, Crispin Glover and Lea Thompson as Marty, George and Lorraine McFly, respectively.

Production

The miniseries was set to debut on the 30th anniversary of Part II.

Fox provides the dialogue for Marty in the series, along with Glover as George and Arthur, and Thompson as Lorraine. Claudia Wells is called to do an extra scene in the first episode. Audio recordings from the game are used for the other characters in the series, including Doc Brown.

Alan Silvestri's score from the film trilogy is reused for the miniseries, rather than composing new music.

The series' episodes are edited for television, due to its profane words like "shit", "bullshit" and "asshole", including its suggestive content. However, the DVD and Blu-ray release has all the episodes non-edited.
