MTV is rebooting the beloved animated sitcom “Daria.” The new series is called “Daria & Jodie,” and it will be written by Grace Edwards, who’s worked on “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and more. According to a press release, the new “Daria” will be “reinvented through the eyes of heroine Daria Morgendorffer and one of her closest friends Jodie Landon.” The description continues, “These two smart young women take on the world, with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race.”

The “Daria” reboot is part of MTV’s new production unit called MTV Studios, which will focus on revivals. In addition to “Daria,” MTV Studios will reboot “The Real World,” “MADE,” and the sci-fi anime series “Aeon Flux,” which will be remade as a live action show. According to Deadline, the programs are “being pitched to streaming platforms like Hulu, Netflix and Apple.”
