The Animaniacs are coming to HULU but not for a while

All the way back in May of last year we heard that the classics 90’s cartoon Animaniacs would be getting a reboot. If you missed that story just click here to check it out. Since then things have been pretty quiet about the whole thing until today when it was announced that The Animaniacs will be making their return to the small screen through the streaming giant Hulu. For those of us that have fond memories of watching this show after a long day at school, this is some very exciting news. However don’t be expecting to see Yakko, Wakko, and their sister Dot right away. In fact, the new series is not expected to premiere until some time in the year 2020. A lot can change in 2 years so I for one am not getting too excited just yet. 

I am so pleased and proud that Animaniacs will have a home at Hulu,” Spielberg said. “Together with Warner Bros., we look to bring new audiences and longtime fans into this wild world of Yakko, Wakko and Dot. I am also excited that the full library of Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures episodes are included in the deal.

According to the Hollywood Reporter Hulu has already ordered 2 seasons of Animaniacs which won eight Daytime Emmys, and ran for 5 years, from 1993 to 1998. The fact that they are working with Steven Spielberg also throws up some red flags for me and makes me wonder if this series will actually see the light of day. I remember when Microsoft announced that they were making a Halo live-action series with Spielberg as director and here we are 5 years later and we’re still waiting. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
