Rugrats is returning to our TV screens after 12 years

Nickelodeon’s most popular cartoon babies are back to answer all of your daytime children’s TV prayers.

Viacom Media Company have announced plans for a 26-episode series of new Rugrats episodes to air on Nickelodeon, to take you back a couple of decades and let your kids experience the joy of one of  your favourite childhood shows.

The reboot will feature all the superstar infants from the original run, including Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Susie and Angelica. That’s not all – there will also be a host of new unknown new characters to add to the excitement.

No plot details have yet been released, so we don’t yet know whether the series will follow on from where the 2006 series left off, whether it will be a prequel, or whether it will fast-forward 12 years to where the characters would be now. It could even time-jump to the future and feature the beloved group’s own rugrats. Though more details are set to be announced in the coming months.

Whatever the plot, it has been revealed that original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain will return as executive produces on the show, so it’s sure to live up to the original.

For an added touch of 90’s nostalgia, the company also announced that the gang of tots will be coming to the big screen for the fourth time. But, while in the past the Rugrats have headed for cinematic roles in their usual animated glory, this time they’ll be coming to life in the form of live-action and CGI.

The film is due to be released on 13 November 2020 by Paramount Pictures, and while no further details have been revealed, Viacom have said that the screenplay will be written by David Goodman. The plot also remains tightly under wraps.

The production of the animated series is already underway in America, so get ready for a Rugrats playdate in the very near future.
