Yabba Dabba Doo? More like Yabba Dabba Two! Fox and Warner Brothers today have announced that they are coming together to make a sequel series to The Flintstones entitled Bedrock.

The network is developing the series as a primetime adult animated comedy series starring Elizabeth Banks as Pebbles Flintstone. Bedrock will follow the Flintstone family two decades after the original, with Fred on the brink of retirement and 20-something Pebbles embarking on her own career. As time marches on, the residents of Bedrock are forced to deal with societal and cultural changes.

The pilot script for the series is being written by Lindsay Kerns, who has written for shows like Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous and DC Super Hero Girls. Elizabeth Banks will also produce the series through her deal at Warner Brothers if the show is picked up to series. This will be the second time Fox has tried to bring back The Flintstones for their network, the first time being shepherded by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. Hopefully, this will be more fruitful for Fox than that endeavor.
