Voice Casts Announced For Bedrock Series As It Moves One Step Closer To Becoming A Television Series

New voice casts have been announced for The Flintstones spinoff series Bedrock, with the previously announced executive producer Elizabeth Banks (who recently directed Cocaine Bear) playing the leading role of Pebbles. The newly released voice casts are Stephen Root as Fred, Amy Sedaris as Wilma, Nicole Byer as Betty, Joe Lo Truglio as Barney, and Manny Jacinto as Bamm-Bamm.

The project has successfully been approved to have a pilot presentation. A pilot presentation is when a network likes the idea, but doesn’t want to spend the money on shooting a pilot, as they are very expensive to create. So they just want a taste of what to expect, which can be a presentation as short as 5 minutes.

According to Fox, the primetime animated adult comedy series continues the story of everyone’s favorite modern Stone Age family, the Flintstones. Bedrock catches up with the Flintstone family two decades after the original, with Fred on the brink of retirement and 20-something Pebbles embarking on her own career. As the Stone Age gives way to a shiny and enlightened new Bronze Age, the residents of Bedrock will find this evolution harder than a swing from Bamm-Bamm’s club.

The last time we heard anything about Flintstones being developed as an animated series for the adult audience was in late April 2021. Now two years later, we have seen how Hollywood handles other beloved characters in the form of “modern sensibilities for adults”. The latest being that of Velma from Scooby-Doo. Assuming Bedrock does come out as a full fledged animated television series, will it also be a mature cynical type of comedy as we saw in Velma? Because apparently, that’s what it takes to become a likable tv series for adults, at least according to many in Hollywood.

And since this is supposed to be a ‘continuation’ of the original series, how does this line up with the animated movies where we see the engagement and marriage of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm? As well as, in the sequel movie, having kids together? Is Bedrock an alternate universe or is this before they become engaged?

Maybe we will find out someday. In the meantime, here is Kneon and Geeky Sparkles initial reaction to the news in 2021:
