6teen Reunion Special on the Way
Fresh TV is working on a reunion special for their animated dramedy 6teen. Taking to social media, voice actors Megan Fahlenbock (Jen) and Christian Potenza (Jude) shared the good news last week. Details on the episode are scant, though Fresh TV president and series co-creator Tom McGillis posted on Twitter that the characters fans have come to love have aged, ending his message with “#8teen.”
The series followed a group of six 16-year-old friends in a shopping mall as they deal with the trials and tribulations of growing up.
Produced in Toronto, Canada by Fresh TV and Elliot Animation, 6teen originally debuted on Teletoon in 2004. After 95 episodes, the show concluded in 2010. In the United States, the series was initially aired on Nickelodeon and its sister channel The N (now known as TeenNick), before really attracting an audience after running on Cartoon Network in the wake of the success experienced by fellow Fresh TV series Total Drama. The series is distributed globally by Nelvana, who is involved with the new special.
6teen fans also have something to look forward to in the new Total Drama. Set in a daycare, the new spinoff features Jude from the series as a toddler.
