This TV comeback will make every Nineties kid VERY excited!

Zig and Zag are coming back!

In order to celebrate the second birthday of RTÉjr, the popular 90’s duo will be back on Irish TV screens – though we reckon they might have to tone down the seedy jokes for their new audience.

The famous aliens will feature in  a new animation series on the commercial-free radio, online and television service for under-sevens, starting in 2016 with 26 episodes.

Viewers can expect to be taken on a fun-filled adventure as Zig and Zag explore and experience Earth from their new home in the 'burbs after touching down from Planet Zog.

Sheila de Courcy, RTÉ's Cross-Divisional Head of Children's Content said:  “With lots of exciting new animation coming to RTÉjr, it’s a particular delight to see Zig & Zag’s new animated series finally going into production! RTÉjr viewers’ parents grew up with the original alien brothers and I know that Double Z, Flickerpix and Jam Media are going to replicate the fun and mayhem for children today in what’s shaping up to be a super series for 2016.”

Zig and Zag made their debut in 1987 so we can be expecting some very excited adults as well as children. For now, we're just going to watch this on repeat…

A modern Irish classic.
