Nickelodeon Slated to Premiere 'Rugrats' Revival in 2021; Nancy Cartwright to Reprise Role of Chuckie Finster

Vanity Fair is reporting the exciting news that voice actor Nancy Cartwright (The Simpsons) that she'll be reprising her role of Chuckie Finster in Nickelodeon's Rugrats revival! Additionally, Vanity Fair also reports that Nickelodeon is planning to debut the network's revived Rugrats series during Fall 2020!

Update (5/14) - Vanity Fair have updated their post to say that Nickelodeon is now planning to premiere the Rugrats revival in 2021!

Nancy Cartwright is best known for providing the voice of Bart Simpson on the long-running, record-breaking animated series The Simpsons. Having voiced the mischievous 10-year-old for over three decades, Cartwright's name will always be synonymous with the role. When not voicing Bart, however, the actor has lent her voice to a variety of other animated characters over the years. She notably took over the role of Chuckie Finster on Rugrats in 2001 following the retirement of the late Christine Cavanaugh, who has since passed away, but was so good even diehard fans couldn't tell the difference. She would also voice the role in the movie sequel Rugrats Go Wild and the spin-off series All Grown Up!.

In a recent Impress Me segment for Vanity Fair, Nancy revealed that taking over the role of Chuckie was one of the most - if not, the most - challegning jobs of her voice acting career. You can watch Nancy's video, in which she watches and reviews some of the most popular impressions of Bart Simpson, Ralph Wiggum (The Simpsons), Chuckie Finster (Rugrats), and Rufus (Kim Possible) on YouTube and gives her opinion and advice on each, below!:

Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures announced in July 2018 that they were relaunching Nickelodeon's beloved '90s animated series Rugrats with a 26-episode new season from Nickelodeon and a live-action film featuring CGI characters from Paramount Players. However, although the TV series is still planned, the new Rugrats movie has reportedly been shelved for the time being.

Rugrats focuses on a group of toddlers, Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, twins Phil and Lil DeVille, and Angelica Pickles, and their day-to-day lives that became adventures in their imaginations. The original Rugrats Nicktoon series launched in August of 1991 and instantly became a groundbreaking phenomenon, spawning consumer products, three hit theatrical releases, various video games and 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, and also spawned three spin-off series, All Grown Up!, Angelica and Susie's School Daze and Rugrats: Tales from the Crib. The series earned four Daytime Emmy Awards, six Kids' Choice Awards and its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
