Arguably the best thing about Beavis and Butt-Head was that they introduced us to Daria. Now she’s set to make a return.
Yes, MTV have formed a new production unit – MTV Studios – and have dusted off the life of Ms Morgendorffer for an updated series featuring both her and friend Jodie Landon. Entitled, appropriately, Daria & Jodie, it will follow the two women as they take on the modern world – and is set to feature the same satricial voice that made the original series so loved by so many. Writer Grace Edwards, who’s worked on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Inside Amy Schumer and Broad City, is set to take charge of the project.
The news comes via Variety, who report that other MTV shows including Aeon Flux and The Real World are also in for the remake treatment.
Ah, if only Daria were a real person, as we’d love to hear her thoughts on all of this.
While we await any form of release date, you can bone up (shut up, Beavis!) on Daria facts here…
