A new The Fairly OddParents series is coming to television but this one will be a mixture of live-action and animation with a 13 episode first season. There is so much to unpack here in terms of information, but the new series will be set after the original series ended for continuity and have Timmy Turner’s cousin Vivian “Viv” Turner and stepbrother Roy Ragland dealing with everything Dimmsdale has to throw at them. Now here is the question will there be some villains like Denzel Crocker, Vicky, Juandissimo Magnifico, Jorgen Von Strangle? It seems since we are in the same timeline we could see some of the same characters. The best part of this announcement is that both Susanne Blakeslee and Daran Norris to voice Wanda and Cosmo!
The story will also see how Timmy transfers his fairy godparents to Viv and how Roy happens to see it so that they both will inherit their powers. This should be interesting having two kids with control over the fairy godparents. Looking forward to seeing Audrey Grace Marshall, Tyler Wladis and Imogen Cohen play the roles of Viv Turner, Roy Ragland, and Zina Zacarias. The only thing we are worried about is that The Fairly OddParents had some really crazy scenes that were easy to accomplish with animation and made the magic feel really powerful, it is going to be interesting how that translates over to live action.
The Fairly OddParents had one of the greatest episodes of all time in Channel Chasers, let’s hope they can replicate the same fun in a live-action series.

Once there, her cousin, Timmy, entrusts his fairy godparents, Wanda and Cosmo, to help her adjust by taking her under their wings. Witnessing the fairy transfer take place, Viv’s new stepbrother, Roy, also inherits them and the two siblings must come together to overcome the obstacles in their path, all with the help from their new wand-wielding and wish-granting fairy godparents.
