“The Fairly OddParents” Is Getting a Live-Action Series

One of the most beloved Nickelodeon animated classics is getting the live-action treatment. Get ready to head back to Dimmsdale, because The Fairly OddParents is officially coming back. 

Nickelodeon’s president and CEO, Brian Robbins, confirmed the news on July 12 in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Robbins revealed the Emmy-winning series, which aired on Nick from 2001 until 2017 and had worldwide success, is going to be relaunching on Paramount+ with a follow-up live-action series. “The Fairly OddParents show is a hybrid so that the fairies are animated and all the humans are live actors,” Robbins revealed of the straight-to-series project, which will feature 13 episodes in its first season.

As an interesting tidbit, THR also confirmed that the show, which is currently in production in L.A, will feature some of the original stars from the animated series. Namely, Susanne Blakeslee and Daran Norris, who have voiced Wanda and Cosmo since its premiere, will still lend their voices to the iconic duo. 

The live-action series will pick up right where its animated counterpart ended. Instead of Timmy Turner, the show will follow the story of the former protagonist’s cousin, Vivian “Viv” Turner, and her “new” stepbrother, Roy Ragland. Newcomers Audrey Grace Marshall, also part of Emmy-nominated The Flight Attendant, and Tyler Wladis will be taking on the titular roles. Though it doesn’t yet have a set release date, the live-action series is expected to debut later this year on the streaming platform.
