A few months ago news was circulating that Nickelodeon was going to revive some of it's classic shows ''We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way'' said content president Russell Hicks.
Now Chris Viscardi and Russell Hicks exclusively confirmed to MoviePilot that they are currently working on a revival of the hit 90s show Rugrats that aired from August 11, 1991 to June 8, 2004.
The revival will be more of an reimagining of the show with Dil and Kimi omitted from the show and will only focus on the original five (Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil and Angelica) of course Susie will in every now and gain.
The tweaked show is being readied “for the current audience that we have,” said Hicks. “You have to remember people who are going to watch really don’t have a recollection of ‘Rugrats,’” he added. “You have to make it relevant to them but also nod to the audience that is going to be interested.”
The company recently launched “The Splat!” a primetime and overnight block of classic programming, on its Teen Nick cable network.
