The Daria spin-off series Jodie has been in the works for years, and now the animated TV series has been picked up by Comedy Central.

Jodie follows the life of Jodie Landon, Daria’s high school friend from the original MTV series. Tracee Ellis Ross will be the voice of Jodie for this new series, and serve as executive producer.

Daria aired on MTV from 1997 to 2002. During the show’s 70 episodes, viewers saw Jodie making her way through Lawndale High as one of Daria’s friends. Landon’s sarcastic demeanor, intelligence and poise will be portrayed onscreen again in Jodie.
