Attention, "Rugrats" fans! The popular animated series about a crew of adventurous babies is coming back ― to both the big and small screens.

Following the news that Kenan & Kel are working together again, ' 90s kids might just explode with euphoria because Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures have officially announced the return of Rugrats.

According to Variety, Nickelodeon and Paramount are set to relaunch the Rugrats series.

"Rugrats" first aired on Nickelodeon in 1991, ending in 2004.

Nickelodeon has ordered 26 brand new episodes featuring Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil and Angelica but will also introduce a new world of characters.

But not all are thrilled.

As long as scary Stu doesn't return to haunt our dreams, we might be on board. It followed a group of babies named Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil and Angelica.

The show's original creators, Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain, are executive producers the projects.

A live-action movie, written by David Goodman, featuring computer generated characters is slated to hit theaters in November 2020.

Paramount Players President Brian Robbins added: "Now feels like the ideal time to reintroduce this iconic cast of characters to a whole new generation of young fans". For instance, Chuckie was the kid who was scared of everything, meanwhile, Tommy was the de facto leader. Disney XD also jumped on the bandwagon past year with the new DuckTales series, which turned out to be better than anyone ever expected it to be. The lumpy-headed design of the classic cartoon characters will be a real test for the Uncanny Valley aesthetic.

Rugrats joins Nickelodeon's already announced Blue's Clues reboot as well as Rocko's Modern Life and Invader Zim, who are scheduled to receive their own specials.
