MTV is bringing back Daria and The Real World with the launch of its new production unit, MTV Studios. The shows are currently being pitched to streaming platforms like Hulu, Netflix and Apple, according to Variety.
Daria, the well-known angsty and animated series from the 1990s, will be titled Daria & Jodie, from writer Grace Edwards (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). Meanwhile, The Real World revival will focus on the social-media era, and Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis will be recreating the sci-fi animated series of Aeon Flux with producer Gale Anne Hurd of The Terminator and Aliens.
Various other show reboots from the ’90s and early 2000s are listed to be revived as well.
Part of what has made way for the creation of MTV Studios is the network’s collection of over 200 titles that spans over three decades of youth-focused content, MTV president Chris McCarthy told Variety.
McCarthy noted that it is possible for MTV Studios to give another try at rebooting MTV animated staples like Beavis and Butt-Head, after a recent short-lived revival on the cable network. You can find Beavis and Butt-Head as well as Daria on IGN’s list of the 25 best adult cartoon TV shows.
