It's official. Rugrats is returning to Nickelodeon for new episodes and a brand-new Rugrats Live-Action Movie. A new animated-series revival featuring the characters from the "90s cartoon has received with a 26-episode order from Nickelodeon; and Paramount Players, the new film division launched to develop projects based on properties from Viacom cable channels, has given a greenlight to a live-action film featuring CGI characters".

Returning to the new TV series as executive producers are the show's original creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain. (Note: Nickelodeon will have a big presence at the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, so perhaps they'll sneak in a surprise Rugrats panel!) As for the movie, David Goodman (Family Guy) will write the script; the targeted release date is now November 13, 2020. Some new characters will also be introduced, and the whole cast will enjoy some new adventures together. "Kids who grew up with Tommy Pickles and the Rugrats crew will now be able to share that experience with their own children". She had this to say.

That's right, Rugrats is coming back to Nickelodeon. The series premiered in August 1991 and ran for nine seasons over the course of 13 years. That film, a crossover with fellow Nicktoons series The Wild Thornberrys, followed the 1998 Rugrats Movie and its 2000 sequel, Rugrats in Paris. Each of the movies gained mixed reviews from critics, but made massive amounts of money at the box office. The series will continue the adventures of babies Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, twins Phil and Lil DeVille, Susie Carmichael and toddler-baby-tormentor Angelica Pickles.

Rugrats joins the recently announced return of Blue's Clues as the latest classic original series Nickelodeon is reviving. You can check out the original report over at Deadline.
