‘Daria’ revival in the works


Daria is making a comeback!

We know Daria Morgendorffer isn’t one for smiling, but this news might just do the trick. Maybe.

Daria & Jodie, a tentatively titled reimagining of the ’90s animated comedy Daria, is one of several nostalgic projects in development at MTV Studios, our sister site Deadline reports. Grace Edwards (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Loosely Exactly Nicole, Inside Amy Schumer) is on board to write. Peruse the show’s official description below:

The iconic animated franchise is reinvented through the eyes of heroine Daria Morgendorffer and one of her closest friends Jodie Landon. These two smart young women take on the world, with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race.

Daria ran for five seasons (1997–2002) on MTV, telling the story of a cynical pizza enthusiast widely considered to be one of pop culture’s preeminent animated feminist icons.
