IndieWire is reporting that Amblin Television and Warner Bros. are planning an Animaniacs reboot to be helmed by legendary director Steven Spielberg. The outlet states that the series revamp is due to Animaniacs‘ increase in popularity over the last year, likely due to its availability on Netflix.

Additionally, they say the show is still in the early stages of development and has no platform for release yet. However, seeing as Fuller House was a hit on Netflix, that might be the route WB goes to launch this reboot.

Animaniacs was a widely beloved show in the 1990s. Running from 1993-1998, the show produced a total of 99 episodes.

  1. “Animaniacs” was so SMART and I don’t know if they can get away with the same level of social satire that they did when they made the original. Don’t get me wrong–I’d love to see them try and SUCCEED, but I’m nervous that the new crew will be somehow neutered.
    This show went in HARD and won a Peabody, and if the reboot is anything like Bill Nye’s return to “TV”, then I’m all in.
