The iconic Gen X characters from MTV are entering the Gen Z world on a new network.

This updated version will also follow the clones of prominent historical figures in high school, including Abraham Lincoln, Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, and John F. Kennedy, as they deal with the trials and tribulations of being a teenager.

“We are thrilled to reunite with Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Bill Lawrence to re-imagine this cult classic as we rapidly grow our portfolio of beloved and iconic adult animation series,” Chris McCarthy, President, ViacomCBS Entertainment and Youth Group, said in a statement.
