'Clone High' Reboot Picked Up for Two Seasons by HBO Max
The Chris Miller and Phil Lord-led revival just became real
Published Feb 10, 2021We first heard inklings of a Clone High reboot last summer, and today, HBO Max has announced its official two-season order of the revival, which is slated to reunite creators Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Bill Lawrence.
MTV Studios is on board to produce, while former writer Erica Rivinoja will also take part in the project.
According to THR, the cartoon cult classic's update will offer a "refresh" on the show's original premise: young clones of prominent historical figures go back to high school and try to survive comedic coming-of-age experiences as they "face the trials and tribulations of normal teenage life."
So far, few other details about the reboot have emerged, including whether or not Michael McDonald's Gandhi will return, after the character's early-aughts depiction got the series cancelled in the first place.
The original Canadian-American animated series — which ran for just one season back in 2002 — also starred Will Forte, Nicole Sullivan and Christa Miller, as well as featured numerous celebrity cameos including Andy Dick, Zach Braff, Tom Green, Donald Faison, Neil Flynn, Debra Wilson, Michael J. Fox and more.
