Although his role in the “All in the Family” was not the main one, later he got his own TV series where George Jefferson was the main character, which was called “The Jeffersons”. The TV series had 11 seasons and were proved to be very successful. Thus, it also played a huge part into accumulating Sherman Hemsley net worth.
