The widely popular 90’s animated series “Rugrats” has confirmed a 26- episode TV series and a live-action rendition. The show ran from 1991-2004 for a total of nine seasons and 172 episodes (excluding the spin off “All Grown Up” which ran from 2003-2008 with five seasons and 55 episodes).

There hasn’t been much information released about the reboots, but fans are hoping that the original cast and crew will return. The show’s original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain will return to the TV series as executive producers. Fans wish to see the voice actors and actresses will reprise their roles and keep the show’s original charm.

This show stood out because it showed the audience the life of babies: the hardships, the success, the failures and everything in between. It showcased the family of Tommy Pickles as well as his friends Chuckie and Kimmi Finster, Phil and Lil DeVille, Angelica Pickles and Suzy Carmichael. This revamp has claimed that it too will include the original characters along with many new ones. As for the actors and actresses playing them there has been no confirmation that the previous actors will come back to reprise their roles.

The live-action remake is rumored to include CGI and it’s release date is set for some time in 2020. There has been no air date released for the series, but we can expect to hear something about it in the coming months.

“Rugrats” will now join the list of recently announced revivals of childhood shows like: “Invader Zim”, “Blue’s Clues”, “Rocko’s Modern Life” and “Hey Arnold” which came out in 2017.

This revival could possibly be very successful or could flop, like several other failed revivals. In any case, it’s exciting for popular shows of the past to get a chance to come back and make a name for themselves yet again.
