Everyone’s favourite monotone, feminist, sarcasm queen is coming back, because MTV is rebooting the beloved ’90s animated sitcom Daria.
The new series will be called ‘Daria and Jodie’, and will be written by Grace Edwards, who’s known for her work on ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ and ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’.
As Pitchfork reports, the new show is said to be ‘reinvented’ through the eyes of Daria Morgendorffer and her Lawndale High pal Jodie Landon.
‘Daria and Jodie’ will still tackle all the old issues they dealt with, though — “These two smart young women take on the world, with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race.”
It’s not clear whether the show will kick off while the girls are in college, or if it will be based further in the future, nor if we’ll be seeing an appearance from Jane Lane?!
The reboot comes as part of MTV‘s new production unit MTV Studios, which will focus on revivals, with ‘The Real World’, ‘Made’ and the sci-fi anime series ‘Aeon Flux’ all reportedly being rebooted too.
This could also mean a ‘Beavis and Butthead’ revival is on the cards, but only time will tell. The revival programs are reportedly being pitched to streaming services like Netflix, Apple, and Hulu.
Daria originally ran for five seasons, between March 1997 and January 2002.
