This is not a drill: MTV is bringing "Daria" back
Remember when 14 years ago MTV cancelled Daria and you wanted to, like, crawl in a hole, curse the world, and never come out? Well, YOU CAN COME OUT NOW BECAUSE MTV IS BRINGING DARIA BACK! Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that MTV will be starting a channel called MTV Classic, which will air many of your old favorites like Daria, of course, as well as Beavis and Butt-Head, Pimp My Ride, Run’s House, and more.
So, to be clear, we’re not getting NEW episodes, but rather an indefinite blast from the past. But, regardless, we’re so excited.
“From Beavis & Butt-Head to Laguna Beach,” MTV President Sean Atkins said in a statement obtained by E! News, “MTV’s programming vault is a music and pop culture goldmine with universal resonance. MTV Classic gives audiences a modern and artful home for classic MTV programming and—alongside MTV, MTV2, MTV Live and mtvU—rounds out a diverse portfolio with music and youth culture at its core.”
WAIT, LET’S GO BACK. YOU HEARD (OKAY, READ) IT CORRECTLY. THEY’RE BRINGING BACK LAGUNA BEACH, TOO.
Other than their scripted and reality series, on Fridays, MTV Classic will also reportedly be re-airing “MTV Unplugged” in addition to “Storytellers” and other live music programming. So awesome.
You can catch it all on the channel where you currently watch VH1 Classic, which will turn into MTV Classic on Monday, August 1st. The first day of programming will include Total Request Live. AHH!
But, more importantly, when can you watch Daria? You’ll be able to catch that between 10pm and 1am.
