  • Taiyō Saitō as Kotetsu Ōsawagi
  • Chikara Honda as Haru Ōsawagi

In addition, Kinosuke, the son of one of the staff members of the show, will play the baby Yūta Ōsawagi.

Tōichirō Rutō (Ossan's Love franchise) is directing the show, with scripts by Makoto Ueda (The Tatami Galaxy, Night is Short, Walk On Girl, Penguin Highway). Erika Fujita and Akiko Kamiyama are credited as producers, while Shinji Abe is credited as chief producer.

The show will premiere in April on TV Tokyo, TV Hokkaido, TV Aichi, TV Osaka, TV Setouchi, and TVQ Broadcasting Kyushu. The series will have new episodes every Friday, except for on TV Osaka, which will air a new episode the following week every Monday.

Hamaoka launched the original Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku (Super Radical Gag Family) manga in Weekly Shōnen Champion in 1993. The 31-volume manga spawned three sequels: the 28-volume Ganso! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku from 2002 to 2010, and Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku, which began in 2010, and ended in March 2018 with 24 volumes. The currently-running Appare! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku series launched in March 2018.

The original Super Radical Gag Family manga inspired a 33-episode television anime two decades ago in 1998. Akitarō Daichi (Fruits Basket, Kodocha, Now and Then, Here and There) directed the anime at Studio DEEN. Maido! Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku also inspired a television anime in 2014, and Daichi again directed the series.
