Come May 27, the Rugrats return to TV. Paramount+ — the streaming service from ViacomCBS — today unveiled the trailer and new art from the resurrected series, in which "the reimagined babies continue to explore their world in brand-new adventures that will both complement and evolve the original series’ beloved stories." 

The revamped Rugrats series stars E.G. Daily (Tommy Pickles), Nancy Cartwright (Chuckie Finster), Cheryl Chase (Angelica Pickles), Cree Summer (Susie Carmichael), and Kath Soucie (Phil and Lil DeVille) — all of whom are back in their original roles.

But there's a host of new voices on the way, too, from all sorts of names you already know. That'll include Ashley Rae Spillers and Tommy Dewey (Tommy’s parents, Didi and Stu Pickles); Tony Hale (Chuckie’s father, Chas Finster); Natalie Morales, (Phil and Lil’s mother, Betty DeVille); Anna Chlumsky and Timothy Simons (Angelica’s parents, Charlotte and Drew Pickles); Nicole Byer and Omar Miller (Susie’s parents, Lucy and Randy Carmichael); and Michael McKean (Grandpa Lou Pickles).

The first set of episodes drops on May 27, with more coming later. The premiere episode, dubbed "Second Time Around," finds Tommy leading the babies "on a daring adventure to help Chuckie after his big attempt to be brave goes horribly wrong."

The initial season will make its way to Nickelodeon on a later date, following its initial run on the streaming service.
