The Ren & Stimpy Show is now joining the growing list of ’90s animated series getting a revival. Comedy Central announced in a release that the Emmy-nominated cult hit show is coming back, but not many further details beyond that.
“I want to thank our partners at Nick Animation as we re-imagine these iconic characters with a new creative team,” said Nina L. Diaz, president of content and chief creative officer for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group.
Noticeably absent from the terse announcement is any mention of the show’s original creator, cartoonist John Kricfalusi. That isn’t exactly a shock, however. In 2018, Kricfalusi was accused by two women of sexually harassing them while they were underage. He subsequently released an apology for his behavior, blaming his mental health and “poor impulse control.”
