Animaniacs is coming out with a second season and now we have a release date for it.
The second season is set to drop this fall with 13 new episodes, on November 5. It will be headed to Disney majority owned Hulu.
In a press release a new promo was given.
“Yakko, Wakko, and Dot return for an all-new season of this iconic, family-friendly series with something for everyone: pop culture parodies, musical showstoppers, takedowns of historical baddies, and even some important safety tips. Join the Warners and Pinky and the Brain as they wreak havoc everywhere they go, from the Warner Bros. lot to an international beauty pageant, even all the way into outer space. Keep an eye out for season one favorites Starbox and Cindy, as well as some rejected Animaniacs characters that were left on the cutting room floor.”
Interestingly they mention “rejected Animaniacs characters” and I have to wonder if we will get the “Hello Nurse” joke back because a lot of fans were not happy with that being removed.
Other characters also disappeared including Slappy and Skippy, Rita and Runt and even Dr. Otto Scratchensniff is mostly out of it. But hey the original writers also weren’t asked back and some people found out about it via friends or social media.
Who is returning is Steven Spielberg as executive producer and Wellesley Wild as showrunner/executive producer.
The last season was a mixed bag in the reviews so let’s hope they’ve found their groove and they fix the problems fans had, but it sounds like they’re returning characters so we might be in for a save.
