A beloved cartoon series from the 90s is set to return with reports that a “SWAT Kats” reboot is in the works.

The new series will be produced through the collaboration between the pair of Christian and Yvon Tremblay and India's Toonz Media Group and will cater to kids aged 5 to 11-years-old.

According to KidScreen, “SWAT-KATS Revoluion” is now in pre-production for global distribution through Toonz, a company aiming to establish a new international linear kids channel to help air its back catalog of content.

For those who may now know, the original “SWAT Kats” ran for two seasons from 1993 to 94. The cast is led by Razor and T-Bone, two residents of Megakat City who turn their junkyard into a base of operations. They fight crime in a fighter jet which will undergo a redesign in the new series.

According to Mukund Cailrae, Toonz Media Network, rebooting the series now would be perfect with Disney and Viacom CBS focusing on streaming services.

The rebooted animated series will launch in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and the MENA region.

"We're bringing our shows wherever there's a content gulf, and with animation, which travels easily internationally and crosses cultural barriers, there's a lot of potential for us to grow," Cairae said.

Also, it would be best to note that showrunners will address the concern of violence in the upcoming series that led to its cancellation.

Back then, Ted Turner wanted the series to tone down the amount of violence in animated series but his statements were misunderstood by Tremblay Brothers. This was about other shows such as “Beavis & Butthead.”

"It has been a long time coming to provide an update on Swat-Kats Revolution, we sincerely apologize. I hope this update will bring you comfort that the efforts to bring back SK is very much alive and we are actively pushing to make it happen...For us the challenge is not IF a new series will be produced, but WHEN will it be done...," Christian Tremblay said in a Kickstarter update.
