Early last year the announcement that The Animaniacs is getting a reboot made every ’90s kid jump for joy. Now there’s even more good news––the entire cast is returning for the new show!
Unlike the parade of reboots from your childhood, an animated series has the benefit of relying only on voices and not faces to bring the beloved characters back to life. Despite a more than 20 year gap since the original Animaniacs left the air, the cast is ready to jump back into action and voice this zany crew of siblings once again.
The cast members themselves broke the exciting news on Twitter, sharing that Rob Paulsen (the voice of Yakko), Tress MacNeille (Dot) and Jess Harnell (Wakko) would all be returning for the new reboot.
“We cannot wait to work with Steven Spielberg and the entire Amblin and Warner Bros. teams to bring more sketches, catchphrases, songs and laughs from the Animaniacs to kids and adults everywhere,” said Craig Erwich, senior VP of content at Hulu. “Now one of the most beloved, inventive and funny animated franchises in history, Animaniacs and its cast of witty characters can live on, on Hulu. This marks yet another big move for us as we continue our efforts to be the No. 1 streaming destination for premium animated content.”
The new Animaniacs series will feature at least two seasons and be available exclusively on Hulu sometime in 2020.
