A revival of children’s cartoon Rugrats is in the works with the original voice cast set to return.

A trailer revealed characters Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie and twins Phil and Lil in an updated CG animation style.

Actors EG Daily, Nancy Cartwright, Cheryl Chase, Cree Summer and Kath Soucie will all be returning, network Nickelodeon said.

Nickelodeon Animation Studio said the revival will follow the toddlers as “they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view.”

Rugrats first aired from 1991-2004.

Ramsey Naito, president of Nickelodeon Animation, said: “Rugrats is one of the most iconic cartoons recognised by fans around the globe, and this original version is one we are taking great care and pride in creating for a brand new audience.

The Rugrats reboot is set to arrive later this year. A UK home for the show has yet to be announced.

The news was announced by ViacomCBS as it prepares to launch Paramount+, its rebranded streaming service, in the US next month.

It also said live-action versions of children’s TV favourites Dora The Explorer and The Fairly OddParents are in the works.

A new Rugrats movie was also teased back in 2018, although that has yet to come to fruition.
