Rugrats Reboot: Popular Kids Cartoon Is Getting A Revival With Original Cast

Remember Rugrats? Well, prepare to have a blast from the past.

Tommy Pickles and co are set to return for a brand new series of the kids' classic, which originally followed a group of toddlers (and bossy big sister Angelica) as they navigated the world.

The series, which reunites the original voice cast, will launch on new streaming service Paramount Plus, it was announced earlier this week.

And judging by these first look pictures, nothing has really changed. While our eyes are being treated to fresh new animation, Angelica is still bossy, Chuckie is still uncertain, and Tommy still leads the pack.

Us 90's kids will remember having grown up with Rugrats - the series originally debuted in 1991 and ran for nine seasons, before the final episode aired in 2004.

The franchise also spawned three movies that were commercially successful, including The Rugrats Movie, Rugrats in Paris and a crossover with another popular Nickelodeon show The Wild Thornberrys titled Rugrats Go Wild.

The popularity of the Rugrats characters saw fans follow them even when they became teenagers in sequel series All Grown Up! which aired from 2003 to 2008.

The new Rugrats reboot is expected to launch later this year, but a date is yet to be confirmed.
