Timmy was an average kid…but now he is all grown up in the new Fairly OddParents live-action series. The show is set to premiere on the Paramount+ streaming platform on Thursday, March 31. Picking up years after the original series ended, the new series will follow Timmy Turner’s cousin, Vivian “Viv” Turner, and her new step-brother, Roy Ragland.
The original series which the live-action show is based followed the adventures of Timmy Turner, a 10-year-old boy with two fairy godparents (Cosmo and Wanda) who grant him wishes to solve his everyday problems. Fairly OddParents ran from 2001 and ended in 2006, but resumed production in 2008. The show has seven seasons in total and it is Nickelodeon’s second longest-running animated show, second only to SpongeBob SquarePants.
Audrey Grace Marshall will play the role of Viv opposite Tyler Wladis as Roy, as they navigate through their new family life in Dimmsdale and take turns making wishes with their newly appointed fairy godparents.
From the first glimpses of the trailer, we can get a glimpse of a fan-favorite character from the original series, Jorgen Von Strangle, who is known as the fairy commander from Fairy World. We can also see that the original Wanda and Cosmo voice actors Susanne Blakeslee and Daran Norris will make a return to their characters in animated form.
All 13 episodes of Fairly Odder will be available to stream next month. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer below:
