Paramount Plus Renews the All-New 'Rugrats' for Season 2


From Nickelodeon Animation Studio, the First Batch of Season One Episodes
Are Available to Stream Now

Eight All-New Episodes from the First Season Drop Thursday, Oct. 7
Exclusively on Paramount+


Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, today announced the renewal of the original series RUGRATS for a second season (13 episodes) in the U.S., Latin America, Australia and Canada, with more adventures from the colorful imaginations of Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, Phil and Lil. The all-new RUGRATS first premiered on Paramount+ in May and the next eight episodes of season one will be available to stream exclusively on the service beginning Thursday, Oct. 7.

“Kids series are a key driver of engagement for Paramount+,” said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer, Paramount+. “With the renewal of RUGRATS for a second season, we look forward to bringing even more adventures with Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica and the rest of the Rugrats for kids and families to enjoy.”

“This next season of RUGRATS will dive even deeper into the secret life of babies and their unsuspecting parents, while continuing to highlight the main themes of friendship and family,” said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation. “For 30 years, the Rugrats have resonated with fans around the globe and we can’t wait to continue telling original and fresh stories with these beloved characters.”

From Nickelodeon Animation Studio, the brand-new RUGRATS series is a reimagining of the classic ‘90s hit that features rich and colorful CG-animation and follows the babies—Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, and Phil and Lil—as they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view. Following the season one run on Paramount+, the series will air on Nickelodeon at a later date to be announced.

In the all-new season one episodes, the babies will continue to find themselves in a variety of situations by using their wild imaginations, including defeating an “outer space villain,” traveling through Chuckie’s dad’s body, embarking upon a daring mission to break Angelica out of preschool and more. The new batch of episodes also includes a half-hour, Halloween-themed special where Tommy needs his friends’ help to save Angelica after she turns into a werewolf at a scary Halloween party as their parents seem to disappear one by one.

The series stars EG Daily (Tommy Pickles), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie Finster), Cheryl Chase (Angelica Pickles), Cree Summer (Susie Carmichael), and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil DeVille), all of whom are reprising their iconic roles in this new series.

The original adventurous babies’ voice cast is joined by new voices, including Ashley Rae Spillers and Tommy Dewey (Tommy’s parents, Didi and Stu Pickles); Tony Hale (Chuckie’s father, Chas Finster); Natalie Morales (Phil and Lil’s mother, Betty DeVille); Anna Chlumsky and Timothy Simons (Angelica’s parents, Charlotte and Drew Pickles); Nicole Byer and Omar Miller (Susie’s parents, Lucy and Randy Carmichael); and Michael McKean (Grandpa Lou Pickles).

Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio, the all-new RUGRATS is based on the series created by Arlene Klasky, Gabor Csupo, and Paul Germain. Kate Boutilier (“Rugrats”) and Casey Leonard (“Breadwinners”) are executive producers and Dave Pressler (“Robot and Monster”) and Rachel Lipman (“Rugrats”) serve as co-executive producers, with Kellie Smith (“The Fairly OddParents”) as line producer on season two. Charlie Adler (“Rugrats”) serves as the voice director. Production is overseen by Mollie Freilich, Senior Manager, Current Series Animation, Nickelodeon.

Today’s “RUGRATS” renewal news comes as the iconic series celebrates 30 years since the original launch. The original “Rugrats” series launched August 11, 1991 and instantly became a groundbreaking phenomenon, spawning consumer products and three hit theatrical releases, cementing its place in pop culture history through its iconic characters, storytelling and unique visual style. “Rugrats” was in production for nine seasons over the course of 13 years. The series earned four Daytime Emmy Awards, six Kids' Choice Awards, and its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Leonardo Showcase | TMNT | Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl | GameMill Entertainment

Leonardo Showcase | TMNT | Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl | GameMill Entertainment

Learn all about Leonardo's moves and mechanics from the developers behind Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

As everyone could probably predict, the majority of the TMNT leader's attacks rely on his swords. They apparently don't do all that much damage, but Leo's variety of slashes allow him to create extended combos and quickly chip away at his opponent's health.

Instead of KO'ing the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants through the blast zone, a good chunk of his moves on the ground or air aim to spike them downwards to take off stocks.

While Leonardo can't fire off a projectile like in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters, his Scissor Slash and spinning Endless Screw special look similar enough to the Super Nintendo / Sega Genesis title that they could be references to it.

Leonardo will be able to use the following moves in the game: Light Neutral “Horizontal Slash”, Light Up “Vertical Slash”, Light Down “Leg Sweep”, Light Neutral Air “Slash”, Light Up Air “Aerial Vertical Slash”, Light Down Air “Down Slash”, Light Dash Attack “Shell Shock”, Strong Neutral “Dual Horizontal Slash”, Strong Up “Dual Vertical Slash”, Strong Down “Scissor Slash”, Strong Neutral Air “Aerial Dual Horizontal Slash”, Strong Up Air “Dual Hit”, Strong Down Air “Aerial Scissor Slash Down”, Strong Dash Attack “Running Hit”, Neutral Special “Niten Ichi-ryu”, Up Special “Endless Screw”, and Down Special “Backflip”.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl continues the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme for Leonardo with his home stage Sewer Slam. It’s a small stage with one platform in the middle, which occasionally oozes out sludge from the pipes to push players it comes into contact with.

Take a look at today’s Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl video showing off the full moveset for Leonardo above.

Netflix's Live-Action 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Stars Show Off Their Chemistry on New Instagram Live

Netflix is prepping to release a highly anticipated live-action adaptation with its upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender series, and the stars that will be portraying some of your favorite benders are already sharing their chemistry on social media. With actors Gordon Cormier, Kiawentiio, Ian Ousley, and Dallas Liu portraying the likes of Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Prince Zuko respectively, the latest Instagram post featuring two of these stars proves not only the fact that these actors have chemistry, but that they are big fans of the source material that helped make the Nickelodeon series a fan favorite.

Prince Zuko and Sokka weren't always seeing eye to eye, with it taking quite some time for the brother of Katara to become friends with the exile from the Fire Nation. One of the major ways that they were able to break the ice was by sharing stories of lost loves, wherein Sokka was able to, hilariously, explain that his ex-girlfriend was transformed into a fish to become the moon spirit due to her destiny. With Zuko saying a now-legendary response in "That's rough, buddy," the two actors that will be portraying these characters in the upcoming adaptation shared this hilarious catchphrase that has become a big meme within the fan community.

Twitter Outlet Avatar News shared this hilarious exchange between Ian Ousley and Dallas Liu in which the upcoming Zuko and Soka sharing the hilarious exchange that helped define the relationship between the former enemies in the beloved franchise of Avatar The Last Airbender:

As Avatar fans know, this upcoming series won't be the only future project in the world of bending as Nickelodeon is currently working on new series and movies in the world of Aang and Korra via Avatar Studios.

What do you think of the chemistry between Dallas Liu and Ian Ousley? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
