Returning under ViacomCBS’ new MTV Studios, the show will be a “reimagined” version of the 2002 animated series with creators Phil Lord, Chris Miller and executive producer Bill Lawrence set to oversee the production. Additionally, South Park writer Erica Rivinoja, who wrote on the original Clone High, will serve as showrunner.
Clone High is a parody of the common high school teen drama but centered around a cast of clones of famous historical figures. The unique yet recognizable characters go to school together and face exaggerated problems faced by regular teenagers. It is currently unclear if the “reimagined” version of Clone High will be launching on Comedy Central like MTV Studios’ other upcoming shows.
For more entertainment news, The Simpsons will be recasting its Black characters with Black actors.
