Rugrats to Return with New TV Series and Movie


The iconic animated series Rugrats will be making a grand return, after 14 years of absence. According to recent reports, Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures are getting ready to relaunch the Rugrats franchise via a 26-episode series and a live action/CG hybrid movie. Both the animated series and the movie will revolve around original characters Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Angelica, and Susie but will also introduce new characters. The original creators of Rugrats, Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo, and Paul Germain will be returning as executive producers and production is already underway in Burbank, California.

The planned Rugrats movie, on the other hand, will be written by David Goodman and is scheduled for a November 13th, 2020 release by new Paramount Pictures division, Paramount Players. The upcoming Rugrats film is the seventh film to be announced as part of the cross-company initiative.

“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, Viacom Media Networks and interim president, 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.”

“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.”
