The world wants, no, demands more Flintstones content, and Elizabeth Banks is going to make it happen.
Banks will executive produce and star in Bedrock, an animated Flintstones spin-off series that follows an adult Pebbles Flintstone, voiced by Banks. The project was actually first announced back in 2019 and now it’s ended up at Fox. This isn’t Fox’s first attempt to revive The Flintstones, either – they once ordered a Flintstones reboot from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, but ended up passing on the project in 2012.

When I was growing up in the ’90s, channels like Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network were gaining popularity and figuring out exactly what they wanted to be in the rapidly expanding world of cable television. The result was plenty of experimental cartoons that maybe shouldn’t have been expressly for kids (such as Ren & Stimpy and Johnny Bravo), but that also meant that there were classic cartoons from decades past that were finding traction with the children of parents who grown up with them a generation before.
In recent years, as each of those networks has expanded their reach of original programming, going so far as to have spin-off channels like Teen Nick and Disney XD. Sadly, this means classic cartoons have gone by the wayside, and there hasn’t been an easy way for those who want to watch shows like Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, The Flintstones and more. But that’s about to change with the new Boomerang subscription service.
