This reimagination of Ren and Stimpy joins ViacomCBS’ previously-announced modern takes on Beavis and Butt-Head (also at Comedy Central) and Clone High. The new Beavis and Butt-Head, from creator Mike Judge, will see the iconic Gen X characters as they “enter a whole new Gen Z world.” Meanwhile, MTV Studios’ new Clone High will follow the clones of prominent historical figures in high school dealing with teen woes.
