Rugrats was always one of my favorite Nickelodeon cartoons of all time as it was original and featured a lot of likable characters.

Now the franchise is getting an animated reboot as well as its own live action movie in the near future.

As reported by The Wrap, Nickelodeon has ordered a new Rugrats animated series that will run for 26 episodes.

Production of the new show has already started with series creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain coming back to serve as executive producers.

The TV show is not the only thing getting revived because a motion picture based on the franchise is also in production at the same time.

The release date for the movie is November 13, 2020. The film's writer is David Goodman and it will feature CGI characters set in a live action environment.

Both the new TV series and movie will feature the original characters such as Tommy, Charlie, Angelica plus Phil and Lil. The TV show and movie is also expected to feature some new characters we have not seen before either.

Paramount's Brian Robbins commented on the reason why they are reviving the Rugrats franchise. You can read his comments posted down below.

"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."

Details for both projects are scarce right now, but hopefully some trailers and images will be released very soon for the new show and new movie. Fans are now old enough to have their own children to watch the show!
