New Primetime FLINTSTONES Cartoon in Development with ELIZABETH BANKS

Flintstones Reboot

Flintstones Reboot

Unfortunately, as of now, there's no indication in Variety's report as to how The Flintstones reboot will be different from the classic iteration of the show or where the idea came from.

Warner Bros Animation and Elizabeth Banks' production company Brownstone Productions are teaming up for a reboot of classic cartoon The Flintstones, according to Variety.

It will be produced by Warner Bros Animation, but now there is no network attached to its release.

While the new show now does not have a network attached, nor a premiere date, the original animated series aired more than 150 episodes on ABC over the course of six seasons, from 1960 to 1966.

It's claimed that sources close to the player are resigning themselves to the fact that Arsenal will not be able to give Palace what they want.

The series followed the The Flintstones - Fred, Wilma, toddler daughter Pebbles, and family pet Dino - who live in Bedrock. There have since been several spin-offs and new shows from The Flintstones including The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show, The Flintstone Comedy Hour, The New Fred and Barney Show, Fred and Barney Meet The Thing, The Flintstone Comedy Show, and The Flintstone Kids.

The new project's buzz comes seven years after Family Guy and American Dad! creator Seth MacFarlane first teased plans for a Flintstones revival that didn't ultimately pan out because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the president of Fox Entertainment didn't love the initial script. The franchise was previously brought to the big screen as a live-action film in 1994 and was followed by a sequel, The Flinstones in Viva Rock Vegas, in 2000.

That one has a 25 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer, along with a 21 percent audience score, meaning we should probably just let that one fade into obscurity. With Elizabeth Banks' behind it, it seems like it'll turn out pretty good. Time will tell, I guess.
