New 'Rugrats' Series Will Feature a More Diverse Cast

Paramount+'s revival of Nickelodeon's beloved '90s series Rugrats will feature a more diverse cast, it has been revealed!

Betty DeVille is now a Latina and is part of the Carmichaels’ main group of friends. The news follows actor Natalie Morales, who voices the character in the new series, revealing that the character, mother of twins Phil and Lil, is also now gay in the new series.

Charlotte’s executive and put-upon assistant Jonathan is now a Latinx character who plays a much bigger role in the show. Additionally, Grandpa Lou also has a wider, more diverse group of friends that he interacts with throughout the series.

Another change fans can expect to see in the Rugrats revival is a slightly younger Susie Carmichael, who has been aged down so that she can no longer talk to adults and spoil Angelica’s plots. This gave the writers more freedom with the plot developments and kept Susie part of the core group of babies.

The all new Rugrats premieres Thursday, May 27 on Paramount+! Try it FREE today at
