Brush off your combat boots and sarcastic attitude, because one of our favorite ’90s series is returning with a really refreshing update.
MTV just announced it’s developing a Daria spin-off centered on her best friend, Jodie. But that’s not the best part. The series, which is fittingly called Jodie, will feature Tracee Ellis Ross as the voice of Jodie.
The 46-year-old Blackish star, who will also executive produce the new series, expressed her excitement about her new endeavor on Instagram with a slideshow. She caption the photo series, “COME THRU JODIE ~ @mtv studios and @gracyact. I am thrilled to bring this project to life with Grace Nkenge Edwards and MTV Studios, both as executive producer and by voicing Jodie’s character.”
She went on to explain the magnitude of the show, saying, “Being able to give voice to fresh, feminist and unexplored stories about women of color excites me. Jodie will spin-off from the cult classic Daria with the brilliant, sweet and sarcastic black girl magic that is Jodie Landon.”
