Nick Announces ‘The Fairly OddParents’ Reimagined

‘Fairly OddParents: A New Wish,’ coming to Nickelodeon this spring, features the return of the Emmy Award-winning series’ lovable Wanda and Cosmos, a recently retired fairy couple, and introduces their new neighbor, 10-year-old Hazel; streaming internationally on Netflix later this year.

Nickelodeon has announced an all-new original animated series, Fairly OddParents: A New Wish, a reimagining of the Emmy Award-winning series The Fairly OddParents, coming to Nickelodeon in the U.S. this spring. The series extends the fairy universe to a modern generation while still honoring the humor and creativity fans grew up watching. The 20-episode series follows Cosmo and Wanda as they meet their latest spunky godchild, Hazel Wells. Together, the trio embarks on unimaginable adventures through Dimmadelphia, where anything is possible with a little bit of magic. Fairly OddParents: A New Wish will also stream internationally on Netflix later this year.

The series stars Ashleigh Crystal Hairston (Tiny Toons Looniversity, Craig of the Creek) as the voice of Hazel. Susanne Blakeslee (The Loud House, Amphibia) and Daran Norris (The Loud House, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder) reprise their roles as Wanda and Cosmos, the lovable, recently retired fairy couple.

The series follows 10-year-old Hazel Wells, who just moved to the big city of Dimmadelphia because of her dad’s new job. On top of being in an unfamiliar environment, it’s the first time she’s been without her brother, Antony, who’s just left for college, leaving her lonely and unsure of herself. All that changes when the pink-and-green-haired neighbors next door reveal that they are no ordinary neighbors…they’re Cosmo and Wanda, fairy godparents! And they’re coming out of retirement to make all of Hazel’s wishes come true. Despite hanging up their crowns after a 10,000-year vacation across space and time, Cosmo and Wanda are out of retirement and back to listening to their magical instincts… no matter how rusty they might be!

Nickelodeon Animation in Burbank produces the series; it is co-executive produced by David Stone (Teen Titans Go!), Lindsay Katai (Infinity Train), Hairston (Tiny Toons Looniversity, Craig of the Creek), and Daniel Abramovici (The Peanuts Movie). Fred Seibert (Adventure Time) and Butch Hartman (Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom) also serve as executive producers. Production is overseen by Nickelodeon for Big Kids senior vice president Claudia Spinelli and Nickelodeon vice president current series Kelley Gardner, with executive in charge Neil Wade overseeing the series.

Nickelodeon’s animated The Fairly OddParents series, created by Hartman, ran from 2001-2017; 172 episodes were produced. It followed the magical adventures of 10-year-old Timmy Turner and his well-meaning fairy godparents, who granted him wishes. During its run, the series received wide critical acclaim and won and received nominations for dozens of awards.
