Premieres September 30, 2021 on HBO Max.
FOX announced today that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is set to reboot the classic 1960s Hanna-Barbera series, The Flintstones. Production is set to begin this fall for a 2013 premiere. The series will be produced by both 20th Century Fox Television and Warner Bros. Television.
According to Deadline, in a video screened at FOX’s upfronts presentation, MacFarlane assured those in attendance that the characters will look the same–but new prehistoric technology will be introduced. An example he pondered was, “What is the animal version of an iPad?”
Launched as an animated version of “The Honeymooners,” Hanna-Barbera’s cartoon classic “The Flintstones” is heading to DVD in a complete series box set. From the town of Bedrock, modern Stone-Age couple Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their goofy best-friend neighbors Barney and Betty Rubble comically trudge through prehistoric daily lives. Rounding out the cast are pet dinosaur, Dino, Flintstones daughter, Pebbles, and Rubbles son Bamm Bamm. The DVD collection includes all 166 episodes of the animated sitcom’s six seasons and will be available in stores on October 28, 2008.
