LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) — Prepare yourselves for the return of Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Angelica Pickles, Susie Carmichael and Phil and Lil DeVille.

An all-new “Rugrats” CG-animated series is slated to premiere on streaming service Paramount Plus (once CBS All Access) in 2021, announced Nickelodeon at ViacomCBS’ investor day.


Set to reprise their roles are stars E.G. Daily (Tommy), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie), Cheryl Chase (Angelica), Cree Summer (Susie) and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil). Nickelodeon Animation Studio is producing the revival, which promises to follow the toddlers as “they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view.”


The original “Rugrats” series, which debuted in 1991 on Nickelodeon, ran for nine seasons across 13 years, earning four Daytime Emmys and six Kids’ Choice Awards.

“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,” said Ramsey Naito, president of Nickelodeon Animation.

“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 CG-animated revival is based on the original series created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo and Paul Germain. Eryk Casemiro and Kate Boutilier are executive producing with Dave Pressler and Casey Leonard on board as co-executive producers and Rachel Lipman as co-producer. Mollie Freilich, Nickelodeon’s senior manager of current series animation, is overseeing the production.

Separately, ViacomCBS is rebooting “Dora the Explorer” and “Fairly OddParents” as live-action series. JB
