Is A ‘Daria’ Reboot Actually Happening?


If you’re a huge fan of the MTV series Daria, the show about the aloof introvert teen who undergoes a series of interesting connections, you’re probably going to be pretty excited about the news that broke today.

Deadline announced today that MTV networks is launching MTV studios and with that new endeavor comes rebooting of several classic MTV programs.

It is reported that it will be focused largely on developing and producing reboots, revivals and spin-offs of series from MTV’s library of more than 200 young adult titles in addition to new shows, predominantly unscripted.

The programming slate will include animated comedy Daria & Jodie, a reimagining of MTV’s 1990s feminist series Daria, from writer Grace Edwards (Inside Amy Schumer); an update of the Emmy-winning coming of age unscripted series Made as well as recently reported live-action remake of MTV’s epic animated sci-fi series Aeon Flux, which was later made into a live action feature film. Also Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis will reboot  groundbreaking reality series The Real World with Bunim/Murray Productions.

Daria & Jodie, The Real World and Aeon Flux all are being pitched to streaming platforms like Hulu, Netflix and Apple.
