The popular series The Flintstones will be continued, entertainment site reports Variety Tuesday. It will be an animated version that will be shown at Fox in the United States.
After earlier attempts have been made to get Fred and Wilma Flintstone and Barney and Betty Rubble back on television, this time it seems to work. Actress Elizabeth Banks serves as executive producer and also voices Pebbles, daughter of Fred and Wilma.
The show, which is the title Bedrock is set in a later period than the original series. Fred is about to retire, while Pebbles in his twenties focuses on her own career.
Fox president Michael Thorn is happy with the new series. “Even before the Simpsons, Griffins and Belchers came along, The Flintstones were a part of our lives. They are the first family of animation and they are absolutely going to rock.”
The original series ran for six seasons from 1960 to 1966 and has been repeated worldwide for years. It was the first animation show to win an Emmy Award.
It is not yet known when Bedrock will be on display for the first time.
