Nickelodeon and Paramount have just announced the return of Rugrats.
Rugrats will always be favourite amongst a lot of 90’s kids. Now it is returning with 26 episodes as a new animated series. A new live-action movie featuring CGI has also been greenlit.
One thing they have confirmed will stay the same is we can expect a lot of adventures with our favourites Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica. We can also expect a lot of new characters.
“Rugrats is hands-down one of the most celebrated cartoons in TV history, and we are thrilled for a whole new audience to meet these iconic characters in brand-new adventures,” said Sarah Levy, COO of Viacom Media Networks and interim president of Nickelodeon. “What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can’t wait for today’s kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals.”
The “Rugrats” movie will be written by David Goodman and is set to be released on Nov. 13, 2020.
“Now feels like the ideal time to reintroduce this iconic cast of characters to a whole new generation of young fans,” said Brian Robbins, president of Paramount Players. “Kids who grew up with Tommy Pickles and the “Rugrats” crew will now be able to share that experience with their own children.”
Not everyone is excited about the news, however.
