'Rugrats' Is Returning To Nickelodeon With New Episodes And Live-Action Movie

For the past decade we have pretty much lived by the teachings from Rugrats. Like when Chuckie said: "I don't have that much time, Angelica. I have to take my afternoon nap." It made us understand the importance of an after work snooze.

Or when Angelica said: "Sometimes I wish I could be you, just so I could be friends with me," it brought our inner sassiness right out.

If you're feeling a little nostalgic don't worry too much because a new animated-series is back with the characters from the '90s and we can't wait.

Variety reported that Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures have announced that there will be a relaunch of the entertainment franchise with a 26-episode order from Nickelodeon.

Paramount Players, the new division launched to develop projects from Viacom cable channels, have also given the go ahead for a live-action film featuring CGI characters.

The TV series and the film will include our favourite, beloved characters but there will also be a few new recruits.

According to E! News, the original series creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain are set to return to the TV series as executive producers.

The movie, which will be written by David Goodman is being released on November 13 2020. Oh, it'll be worth the wait.

Sarah Levy, COO of Viacom Media Networks and interim president of Nickelodeon, told Variety: "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.

"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."

And Brian Robbins, president of Paramount Players, added: "Now feels like the ideal time to reintroduce this iconic cast of characters to a whole new generation of young fans.

"Kids who grew up with Tommy Pickles and the Rugrats crew will now be able to share that experience with their own children."

The original Rugrats episodes were first aired in 1991 and was in production for nine seasons over 13 years.
