Get your ridiculous wishes ready with obtuse, rubber goose, green moose, guava juice, giant snake, birthday cake, large fries, and some chocolate shake!

That’s right, the classic hit animation series, Fairly Oddparents is coming back and this time the reboot is a live action one.

All right, maybe not entirely a live action series, a hybrid of some sorts, with two animated pink and green haired floating fairies as well.

The plot this time doesn’t involve Timmy Turner entirely. Instead, the show will focus on Timmy’s 13-year-old cousin, Viv, and her stepbrother Roy, who both move back to Dimmsdale due to their father remarrying his childhood sweetheart. To make things less harrowing, Timmy decided to let Vivian inherit Cosmo and Wanda as her fairy godparents, however she has to share it with her stepbrother Roy because somehow he saw the transfer take place.

Nickelodeon recently revealed that the live adaptation is already in the works with a cast of new and familiar faces.

Susanne Blakeslee and Daran Norris will reprise their roles and give their voices to Wanda and Cosmo. Audrey Grace Marshall will be playing Vivian while Tyler Wladis is Roy, Ryan-James Hatanaka as Ty Turner, Viv's father, and Imogen Cohen as Zina Zacarias, Viv and Roy's friend. As for Timmy’s cameo, his actor is yet to be announced.

The original show ran on Nickelodeon from 2001-2006 and follows the story of Timmy Turner, a 10-year-old boy and his fairy godparents Wanda and Cosmo, who grants his wishes. Most of the time Timmy’s wishes go southward causing mishaps and mayhem.

Christopher J. Nowack is the show’s executive producer and showrunner. He is joined by Samantha Martin, Freid Seibert, and original show creator Butch Hartman as producers.

There are no further details on when the show is expected to be released.
