'Daria' Reboot in the Works on MTV Studio Slate

Share

The show is being written by Grace Edwards, who has written for Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer and MTV's Loosely Exactly Nicole.

Daria Morgendorffer, bastion of '90s monotonal cynicism, is returning in an MTV reboot of cult classic animated series Daria.

Also in the works are remakes of sci-fi anime "Aeon Flux"; staple reality shows "Real World" and "Made"; along with new docuseries "Straight Up Ghosted", which will follow young people trying to rekindle lost relationships, and "The Valley" in the essence of "The Hills" and "Siesta Key".

Just like the 1990s original, the new Aeon Flux centers on its titular "badass heroine assassin" Aeon Flux as she partners with a crew of biohacking rebels as they fight to save humanity.

No word yet on when the new and rebooted TV shows will launch. But there's one major difference between the two: the reboot won't be animated, it'll be live-action. Following the two women as they "take on the world", the series will explore and deconstruct gender norms, racism, societal expectations, popular culture, and social classes.

There's now no word on when we can expect Daria & Jodie to grace our screens but in the meantime, get schooled on sarcasm via the entire back catalogue of Daria on Stan.

In a remarkably candid response, MTV president Chris McCarthy told Deadline that the network was considering a new version to air on television, but admitted that would mean the network would have to "bastardize it".

MTV Studios is also planning some new, non-reboots as well.

We'll keep you updated on Daria & Jodie as things develop!

MTV is reaching back into the archives to revive another classic: Daria. The show was produced by MTV Animation and ran for five seasons, following intelligent, acerbic teen misfit Daria as she navigated the daily aggravations and hypocrisies of school, family and the world in general with her artsy best friend, Jane. Her apparent absence in the reboot might turn potential viewers off.
