It not such a sad world after all: because MTV Studios has announced the first of several planned spin-offs based on its early aughts teen comedy Daria.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tracee Ellis Ross will voice and executive produce Jodie, an animated series centering on Daria’s friend as “she comes into her own and enters the workplace in her first post-college job in tech.”
“Being able to give voice to fresh, feminist and unexplored stories of young women excites me,” Ross says in a statement.
“Jodie will spin off from the cult classic Daria, and with the brilliant, sweet and sarcastic black-girl magic that is Jodie Landon, we will feature a diverse cast, comprised mainly of unapologetically smart and ambitious young female characters who are vulnerable and flawed and interesting and funny."
Not only that, but Jodie will be the first adult animated show in almost 20 years that will star a black woman!
"It will be a smart, funny workplace comedy full of commentary about everything from gentrification to sex to tech to call-out culture.”
No release dates have been announced but we are so ready to see where Jodie will take us!
