Natalie Morales is staying animated…
Paramount+ has renewed the revival of the classic Nickelodeon series Rugrats, featuring the 36-year-old Cuban American actress among the voice cast, for a second season.
The revival, which follows the titular tots and their imaginative shenanigans, features original cast members E.G. Daily, Nancy Cartwright, Cheryl Chase, Cree Summer and Kath Soucie as Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Susie, Phil and Lil, respectively.
In addition to Morales, the voice cast also features Nicole Byer, Ashley Rae Spillers, Tommy Dewey, Anna Chlumsky, Natalie Morales, Michael McKean and Omar Miller.
Paramount+ also revealed the premiere date for the second batch of Season 1 episodes, including the upcoming Halloween special.
The second batch of episodes, which will drop on October 7, will continue to see the Rugrats using their wild imaginations to defeat an outer-space villain, travel through Chuckie’s dad’s body, embark upon a daring mission to break Angelica out of preschool and more. The half-hour Halloween-themed special sees Tommy work with his friends’ help to save Angelica after she turns into a werewolf at a scary Halloween party as their parents seem to disappear one by one.
The original Rugrats series launched August 11, 1991, and became a phenomenon, spawning consumer products and three hit theatrical releases, cementing its place in pop culture history through its characters, storytelling and unique visual style. Rugrats was in production for nine seasons over the course of 13 years. The series earned four Daytime Emmy Awards, six Kids’ Choice Awards and its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
