Yakko, Dot, and Wakko are making a return for two more seasons. The Animaniacs will bring back Steven Spielberg, who had worked on its original run in the 90s. Here is what Spielberg said:
“I am so pleased and proud that Animaniacs will have a home at Hulu. Together with Warner Bros., we look to bring new audiences and longtime fans into this wild world of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. I am also excited that the full library of Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures episodes are included in the deal.”
The Hulu deal goes beyond just two seasons. This deal was made between the streaming service, Amblin Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation. It includes exclusive streaming rights of the original Animaniacs episodes, Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain, Pinky and the Brain, and Tiny Toon Adventures.
Hulu is no doubt a must-have subscription for all fans of the 90s. Animaniacs had run for 99 episodes between 1993 to 1998. This series had featured voices of Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, and Tress MacNeille. Animaniacs focuses on the Warner Brothers, Yakko, Wakko, and their sister Dot. Since the show ran for 99 episodes, their upcoming first episode will be the 100th episode.
A potential Animaniacs reboot had been reported in May, but it was not clear where this reboot would land. Details have been now worked out, and Hulu is confident to bring back this animated series. As of now, it is unclear if networks like Netflix were in the running, but it is tough to imagine Netflix did not try to at least scoop up a revival.
President of Warner Digital Series and Warner Bros. Animation, Sam Register with Amblin Television’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey are the executive producers for the new Animaniacs reboot. The new episodes will arrive on Hulu by 2020.
