Hulu announced the WarnerBros cartoon Animaniacs will be making its comeback on the platform November 20 with a 13-episode season. This release date comes after the streaming service announced its two-season series order for the 90s cartoon two years ago. Another 13 episodes for season 2 is scheduled for 2021.
Yakko, Wakko and Dot are all part of the new rebooted series. If that isn’t nostalgic enough, Pinky and the Brain are returning to the small screen as the notorious villains threatening the siblings’ world.
Stephen Spielberg is back in the executive producer’s chair for the series, with Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, and Amblin Television co-presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving as executive producers.
“I am so pleased and proud that ‘Animaniacs’ will have a home at Hulu,” Spielberg said. “Together with Warner Bros., we look to bring new audiences and longtime fans into this wild world of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot.”
Animaniacs originally debuted on television in 1993 where it ran for five seasons.
