This Is Not a Drill: There's a Daria Reboot in the Works

Your MTV fave is making a comeback!

Keisha Hatchett

MTV is reaching back into the archives to revive another classic: Daria. However, the reboot won't necessarily air on MTV.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network is launching MTV Studios with the hopes of selling reboots of some of their most iconic shows, like the animated classic, to other networks and streaming services. Under this plan, MTV is also working on bringing back the inspirational reality series Made alongside the previously announced live-action reboot of Aeon Flux and revival of the groundbreaking unscripted series The Real World.

Daria follows a cynical teen outsider during her high school years as she, along with her artsy best friend Jane, deal with idiotic peers and condescending adults. The series is a spin-off of Mike Judge's animated classic Beavis and Butt-Head, where Daria first appeared as a recurring character. It premiered March 3, 1997 and ran for five seasons (which you can now stream on Hulu), and spawned two movies.

Meanwhile, Made followed teens who hoped to become singers, athletes and various other desirable (and often fame-worthy) careers. The show tracked their often difficult journeys to becoming the person they hoped to be with the help of coaches. That series ran from 2002-2014 on MTV.

MTV Studios is also working on new, original programming including the reality series The Valley, which sounds a lot like The Hills and Siesta Key, and Straight Up Ghosted, which reunites long-lost friends who've lost touch over the years.
