Here’s the breakdown of the latest news in nerd culture:
Animaniacs Return to TV
The hit Warner Bros. animated series, Animaniacs, is finally returning to TV after 22 years! Yakko, Wakko, and Dot are all returning with their original voice actors all attached. The same goes for Pinky and the Brain, who will also be featured like in the original series. The animation is updated but will keep the aesthetic and feel of the original series. The show will take place in modern day, but the humor looks to be on par with the original series as well. Steven Spielberg is also returning as executive producer of the series.
Two new seasons are planned to come to Hulu, with the first planned to release on November 20th this year. It’ll be exciting to revisit the Warner Brothers and Warner Sister after over two decades.
Tiny Toons Reboot Announced
The Tiny Toons will also be returning to TV. The reboot, which will be on HBO Max and Cartoon Network, will be titled Tiny Toons Looniversity, as opposed to the original Tiny Toons Adventures. The updated title may indicate the characters, like Buster and Babs, being a little older than in the original series while still attending school to take over for the Looney Tunes as the next great cartoon characters.
There is no release date set for the animated reboot yet, but like Animaniacs, it is greenlit for two seasons and will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg.
Cyberpunk 2077 Release Postponed Again
The release of the highly anticipated video game Cyberpunk 2077 has been postponed yet again. It has now been postponed three times and was originally announced roughly eight years ago. It’s safe to say that fans are itching to finally get their hands on this long-awaited game, and must be getting rather impatient waiting for it.
The previous release date for Cyberpunk 2077 was November 19th 2020, but it has now been pushed back to December 10th, 2020. On the bright side, December 20th isn’t much more of a wait. Hopefully this wait will allow the development team, CD Projekt Red, to work out any potential kinks and provide gamers with the best experience possible.
