The iconic Cosmo and Wanda are ready for a comeback to grant the wishes of another little lonely kid while trying to teach them some important lessons along the way. Nickelodeon has greenlit 20 episodes for the animated sequel The Fairly Oddparents: A New Wish.

While character designs haven’t been revealed, Nickelodeon did offer quite a lot of information regarding what fans can expect from the upcoming The Fairly Oddparents: A New Wish animated series. The best part of the announcement is that actors Susanne Blakeslee and Daran Norris will reprise their roles as Wanda and Cosmo, respectively.

The premise of the show deals with our new 10-year-old lead Hazel (Ashleigh Crystal Hairston). She’s moved to the big city of Dimmadelphia due to her dad’s new job. Hazel feels out of place and lonely in the unfamiliar environment and to top it off her older brother left for college. However, things take a turn for the better when Hazel realizes that her next-door neighbors, with green and pink hair, are actually powerful fairy godparents named Cosmo and Wanda.

As for what Cosmo and Wanda have been up to, well, apparently, they retired and went on a 10,000-year vacation across time and space. But their magical instincts come calling when they see Hazel. From what I can tell, the narrative will lean into the comedy arising from both characters being a bit rusty when tapping into their magical abilities.

The creative team will aim to expand the universe and introduce it to the modern generation while honoring the OG through the upcoming cartoon series.

I mean, that can be yet another case of something easier said and done. Certain cartoons are a product of their time and trying to reimagine such content for the current audience doesn’t always end well. But hey! As a fan of OG The Fairly Oddparents, I’m rooting for the upcoming sequel.

The award-winning The Fairly Oddparents series ran from 2001 to 2017 with a whopping 172 episodes. So, the sequel has a lot to live up to.

I took to Twitter to take a glimpse at the fan reaction, and a bunch of them want Timmy Turner to make a cameo or be involved in the new series in some manner. On the other hand, certain fans don’t want a sequel at all, and I don’t blame them.

For those who might not know, the live-action sequel The Fairly Oddparents: Fairly Order debuted on March 13, 2022, and it wasn’t able to attract much of an audience. 

Whatever happens with this particular project, it’s sure to make for some lively online discussion.

The Fairly Oddparents: A New Wish is supposed to air sometime in Spring of this year on Nickelodeon in the USA. The series will be made available internationally via Netflix later this year.

The Fairly OddParents: A New Wish has been produced by Nickelodeon Animation in Burbank. The series is co-executive produced by David Stone (Teen Titans Go!), Lindsay Katai (Infinity Train), Ashleigh Crystal Hairston (Tiny Toons Looniversity, Craig of the Creek), and Daniel Abramovici (The Peanuts Movie). Fred Seibert (Adventure Time) and Butch Hartman (Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom) serve as Executive Producers.
