Comedy Central has announced a reimagination of the Emmy-nominated cult hit The Ren & Stimpy Show as it continues to double down on adult-focused animation.
“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.
The Ren & Stimpy Show aired for five seasons on Nickelodeon from 1991 to 1995. The following year, the series had a run on MTV.
“We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio,” added 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.”
