The adult sci-fi animated series debuted in 2002 on the now-defunct Teletoon in Canada and ran for one season. Created by The Lego Movie‘s Phil Lord and Chris Miller and Scrubs‘ Bill Lawrence, Clone High takes place at a high school populated by the clones of well-known historical figures, including Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Joan of Arc and Gandhi.
While the series was cancelled due to low ratings, a cult following in the years since ultimately led MTV to greenlight two new seasons in 2020. The revival takes place 20 years after the original and features returning voices Will Forte (Abe), Nicole Sullivan (Joan), Phil Lord (Scudworth), Chris Miller (JFK and Mr. B) Christa Miller (Candide), Donald Faison (George Washington Carver) and Judah Miller (Scangrade).
Check out the trailer for the revival below:
It’s important to note that the first season of Clone High isn’t actually available in Canada on any subscription streaming service or even up for purchase from stores like iTunes and Google Play. Bell has confirmed to MobileSyrup that only the revival of the series is coming to Crave.
