The Flintstones are coming out of the Stone age


Warner Bros. Animation is developing a “The Flintstones” sequel series called “Bedrock” for Fox, starring and executive produced by Elizabeth Banks, known for “Cocaine Bear”. Set 20 years after the original, Banks will voice an adult Pebbles Flintstone.

The voice cast for the “Bedrock” series has been announced, featuring Stephen Root as Fred, Amy Sedaris as Wilma, Nicole Byer as Betty, Joe Lo Truglio as Barney, and Manny Jacinto as Bamm-Bamm.

The “Bedrock” cast has extensive experience in adult animation voice acting. Stephen Root, known for his role as Bill Dauterive in “King Of The Hill“; Amy Sedaris, who played various roles on “BoJack Horseman”; and Nicole Byer from “Tuca & Bertie,” who appeared in numerous popular series like “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Archer,” “BoJack Horseman,” and “American Dad.” Joe Lo Truglio, famous for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” also has experience from his time on “American Dad.” However, for Manny Jacinto, known for his role as Jason on NBC’s “The Good Place,” “Bedrock” will be his first animated role.


The show features Fred Flintstone nearing retirement while Pebbles starts her career, as Bedrock transitions from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. Lindsay Kerns will write and co-executive produce, and the series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Fox Entertainment, and Brownstone Productions.

It’s been 2 years

When “Bedrock” was announced in 2021, Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn said:

Long before the Simpsons and Springfield, the Griffins and Quahog, or even when the Belchers started serving burgers on Ocean Avenue, there were the Flintstones and Bedrock. Their imprint on the animation universe is undeniable and the idea of adapting it for today’s audience is a challenge we here at Fox are very much looking forward to taking on with Warner Bros., Elizabeth, and Lindsay. No pressure whatsoever, really.


Two years after the initial announcement, Fox has ordered a pilot presentation for the “Bedrock” project, with Elizabeth Banks as executive producer.

“The Flintstones” is an iconic American animated sitcom created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. It first premiered on September 30, 1960, and ran for six seasons until April 1, 1966, on the ABC network. The show was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and is often regarded as the first prime-time animated television series.

Set in the prehistoric town of Bedrock, the show followed the lives of the Flintstone family, which consisted of Fred Flintstone, his wife Wilma, their daughter Pebbles, and their pet dinosaur, Dino. Their neighbors, the Rubbles—Barney, Betty, and their son Bamm-Bamm—also played significant roles in the series.

The Flintstones was a parody

“The Flintstones” was a parody of the popular 1950s sitcom “The Honeymooners,” featuring a working-class family facing everyday problems with a prehistoric twist. The show was groundbreaking in its time, as it was the first animated series to feature a primetime slot and to depict a couple sharing a bed.

The success of “The Flintstones” led to various spin-offs, television specials, and films, both animated and live-action. Some of the notable spin-offs include “The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show,” “The Flintstone Comedy Hour,” and “The Flintstone Kids.” The franchise has also inspired comic books, theme parks, and a vast range of merchandise.

Over the years, “The Flintstones” has retained its status as a beloved classic, with its characters and catchphrases still widely recognized today. The series’ influence can be seen in subsequent animated sitcoms like “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy,” which have similarly targeted adult audiences.
