The Cartoon Network series Foster’s Home

A reboot of the Cartoon Network series Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends is on the way, with original creator Craig McCracken helming. Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is developing a reboot of Cartoon Network’s Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends with original creator Craig McCracken. The original animated series premiered on Cartoon Network in 2004 as a TV film, and then it began its regular run as half-hour episodes. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Mac and his beloved imaginary friend Bloo at an orphanage for imaginary friends that children have left behind. Over a decade since the series ended in 2009, more stories are to come, with the characters set to be a part of the new legacy at the studio.

President of Cartoon Network Studios, Warner Bros. Animation, and Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, has announced that Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends will return as an original preschool animated series. While it’s unclear if original characters like Mac and Bloo will return, Register said the reboot will be “welcoming a new cast of preschool-aged imaginary friends” that will be “just as silly and playful as the original bunch.” In addition to original creator Craig McCracken’s return as creator, producer, and director, Sarah Fell, VP, Original Kids and Family Animation, Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, will oversee the project’s development at the studio.

Classic Cartoon Network Shows Are Missing On HBO Max has an extensive catalogue of content, but it’s missing some fan-favorite shows from Cartoon Network. Will they ever be added? WarnerMedia has officially launched its own streaming platform, HBO Max, with content from The CW, DC Entertainment, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, and more, but it’s missing some popular titles, especially from Cartoon Network. The streaming wars continue to heat up, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, as streaming platforms are now the only way in which audiences can get their fix of films and TV shows, and WarnerMedia has now joined the battle.

HBO Max launched on May 27, and it arrived with a lot of licensed and original content, most notably Friends, Game of Thrones, all Lord of the Rings films and the whole Harry Potter saga. Contrary to other recently launched services, HBO Max has content for all ages and tastes, with Cartoon Network in charge of the younger audiences. The platform arrived with some well-known and beloved cartoon shows in its catalogue, but subscribers were quick to point out that the service is still missing a lot of Cartoon Cartoons.

HBO Max subscription can enjoy cartoons like The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, and Samurai Jack, but the platform is missing a lot of other popular and fan-favorite shows. Fans have voiced their disappointment when they didn’t find Ed, Edd n Eddy, Johnny Bravo, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Codename: Kids Next Door in HBO Max’s catalogue of Cartoon Network content, making them wonder if their deal fell through or if there’s another platform blocking them from joining WarnerMedia’s.

The Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends reboot is one of two projects Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is currently developing for Cartoon Network—the other being a Powderpuff Girls reboot. Other titles, such as the Gremlins and We Bare Bears spin-offs, are set to be released on Cartoon Network later this year. Cartoon Network continues to answer the call of nostalgia in bringing back beloved characters and universes with spin-offs and reboots seemingly happening at every major studio and network.
