Comedy Central is continuing its nostalgia trip into the early 1990s…
After previously green-lighting reboots or reimaginings or revivals or whatever-you-may-call-thems of Beavis and Butt-Head and a Daria spin-off, Comedy Central now has announced it’s bringing back The Ren & Stimpy Show.
“I want to thank our partners at Nick Animation as we re-imagine these iconic characters with a new creative team,” said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group.”
Nickelodeon launched the original Ren & Stimpy alongside Rugrats and Doug in 1991, and it became an Emmy-nominated favorite, running through 1995.
“We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio,” said Chris McCarthy, President of ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group. “Ren & Stimpy joins our rapidly expanding roster of adult animation including South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head and Clone High as we continue to reimagine our treasure chest of beloved IP for new generations.”
