GOOD NEWS! I LOVE GOOD NEWS! THANK GOD FOR GOOD NEWS! :)
Where my friends in their 30's at??! 25 years later, Ren & Stimpy are returning to TV thru ViacomCBS. The network will be reinventing the animated series for a "new era"
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Comedy Central has greenlit a "reimagined" take on the former Nickelodeon and Spike adult animated series. Details are scares but the ViacomCBS-owned cable network plans to hire a new creative team for the update, which will be reimagined for a new generation. The series hails from Nickelodeon Animation Studio. Additional information, including writers, an episode count and premiere date, have not yet been determined.
The updated Ren & Stimpy show marks the latest push into adult animation for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group president Chris McCarthy, who also greenlit Daria spinoff Jodie, updates of Beavis & Butt-Head and Clone High. Both Jodie and Beavis & Butt-Head were picked up for Comedy Central, while the new Clone High does not yet have a network attached.
"We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio," McCarthy said. "Ren & Stimpy joins our rapidly expanding roster of adult animation including South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head and Clone High as we continue to reimagine our treasure chest of beloved IP for new generations."
