Return Of An Icon: Daria Is Coming Back To MTV

La la la la la

To quote the great Daria Morgendorffer, "I'm overcome with emotion."

MTV has announced that Daria will be returning in the form of a new series, with the iconic animated franchise being reinvented through the eyes of the beloved heroine and one of her closest friends, Jodie Landon. These two smart young women will take on the world with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race. The program -- which is part of a new production unit at the network called MTV Studios -- will be written by Inside Amy Schumer scribe Grace Edwards.

A brief history about the unforgettable cartoon: Daria and her unique Lawndale-based circle -- sister Quinn, parents Jake and Helen, BFF Jane Lane and her brother Trent, The Fashion Club, The Three Js, pal Jodie and misc Lawndale High faculty -- made their debut on MTV in March 1997. The combat boots-loving teen provided timeless (and amazingly acerbic) observations on adolescence, and the rest -- "la la la la la" -- is history.
