Guys, A 'Daria' Revival Is Happening & I'm Pleasantly Optimistic

One of the best parts about MTV back in the late '90s and early '00s was staying up late and watching their TV shows before the midnight block of music videos would start. (Yes, they really used to play hours of music videos at night. Crazy, right?) I would hope my parents wouldn't catch me watching the racy college show Undressed, and would laugh at Clone High and Celebrity Death Match. But my absolute favorite? Daria.

Daria was about a girl who didn't necessarily fit in, who had a popular sister named Quinn, a best friend named Jane, and was hopelessly in love with Jane's brother Trent. She was sarcastic and witty, smart and sometimes timid. I loved every single part of that show and have since watched the show at least two more times through. I especially loved when they would show the characters in hilarious costumes as the credits rolled. When the show ended in 2002, I was sad.

But apparently I don't have to be sad anymore!

Yes, in the time of revivals it would seem that Daria has come up next on the list. Variety reports that MTV has created MTV Studios, a new outlet for both new TV shows and a revival of some fan favorites including Daria, Made and The Real World. The new variation of Daria will be written by Inside Amy Schumer writer Grace Edwards and will follow Daria and one of her close friends Jodie as "these two smart young women take on the world, with their signature satirical voice while deconstructing popular culture, social classes, gender and race."

This will definitely be something to watch!
