The Rugrats are back. Nickelodeon has revived the classic animated sitcom for a 26-episode 10th season, with sibling network Paramount greenlighting a feature film to release November 2020.
Viacom Media Networks and Nickelodeon said via statement:
“Rugrats is hands-down one of the most celebrated cartoons in TV history, and we are thrilled for a whole new audience to meet these iconic characters in brand-new adventures. What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can’t wait for today’s kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals.”
“Now feels like the ideal time to reintroduce this iconic cast of characters to a whole new generation of young fans. Kids who grew up with Tommy Pickles and the Rugrats crew will now be able to share that experience with their own children.”
The original Rugrats survived 172 episodes spanning nine seasons from 1991 to 2004, along with three movies — 1998’s The Rugrats Movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie (2000) and Rugrats Go Wild (2003).
