The multiple Emmy-winning series that we all love and know as “Clifford the Big Red Dog” is set to return with an all-new animated series in the fall of 2019 on Amazon prime and PBS kids.

Clifford The Big Red Dog is the animated children’s series based on the books that began in 1963 by Norman Bridwell. It focuses on emphasizing empathy and social-emotional themes while also increasing early literacy and imaginative play. “Clifford has always helped children understand their world and face challenges with kindness and understanding, life lessons he’ll continue to share in the new series,” says Iole Lucchese, Scholastic’s chief strategy officer and executive producer of the new series. The show is being produced by Scholastic Entertainment.

The original version of the series debuted on PBS in 2000 and ran for three seasons, airing in 110 countries. Late actor John Ritter voiced Clifford. Ritter died in 2003 but was nominated a year later for a Daytime Emmy for outstanding performer in an animated program. There is no news yet on who will voice Clifford on the reboot, a rep for Scholastic Entertainment said.

The reboot will feature 39 episodes with colorful new locations, new designs for Clifford and his owner, Emily Elizabeth, and plus new characters. There is no official release date for the reboot yet.
