The ‘Rugrats’ Are Back!
Nickelodeon

Rejoice! The classic animated children’s show “Rugrats” is coming back for a reboot!

On Wednesday, Nickelodeon announced that the program’s original cast members are reprising their roles in a new, CG-animated series.

The reimagining of the classic ’90s hit stars E.G. Daily (Tommy), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie), Cheryl Chase (Angelica), Cree Summer (Susie), and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil). It is set to debut this spring on Paramount+.

“Rugrats is one of the most iconic cartoons recognized by fans around the globe, and this original version is one we are taking great care and pride in creating for a brand-new audience,” Ramsey Naito, president of Nickelodeon Animation, said in a statement.

“Having the voice cast behind these special characters come together is one of the essential pieces to making the show recognizable and we can’t wait to watch this talented group bring them to life again.”

The all-new “Rugrats,” based on the series created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo, and Paul Germain, will be showrun by executive producers Eryk Casemiro and Kate Boutilier.

On Wednesday, Paramount+ released a first look, in which Angelica mischievously commands Chuckie to grab some frosted animal cookies!

“Rugrats” premiered in 1991 and ran for nine seasons over 13 years.

The show has also spawned three movies: 1998’s “The Rugrats Movie,” 2000’s “Rugrats in Paris: The Movie,” and 2003’s “Rugrats Go Wild,” a crossover between “Rugrats” and “The Wild Thornberrys.”
