Fairly OddParents was a staple Nickelodeon cartoon back in the day. Key words “back in the day.” The kids that watched it during its prime (myself included) now have zero interest in seeing it rebooted… especially a live action version.
Everyone remembers how truly awful the Drake Bell Fairly OddParents movie was… well, everyone except Paramount+ because they’re the ones heading the new show: Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder, which will focus on a grown-up Timmy Turner giving Cosmo and Wanda to his younger cousin. If you don’t think that sounds like a completely terrible idea, here’s a real photograph of the guy playing Timmy Turner:
The show is set to be released on March 31st, 2022, for all seven people that actually want to watch it. Entertainment Weekly describes the plot as this:
“The premise of the series focuses on Viv as she moves to the town of Dimmsdale when her dad, Ty (Ryan-James Hatanaka), decides to reunite with his high school sweetheart, Rachel Raskin (Laura Bell Bundy). Rachel’s son, Roy (Tyler Wladis), sees Timmy bestowing his fairy godparents on Viv as she deals with the change in her life, and now the two kids agree to take turns making wishes.”
