Titled The FairlyOdd Parents: Fairly Odder, the series sees Caleb Pierce play a grown-up Timmy Turner alongside Audrey Grace Marshall as his cousin Viv and Tyler Wladis as her new step-brother Roy Raskin.
Susanne Blakeslee and Daran Norris also return as animated characters Wanda and Cosmo from the original series.
After the trailer was released, many viewers criticised the show – comparing it negatively to a Saturday Night Live skit.
“The new live action fairly oddparents show is genuinely one of the worst things I have ever seen,” one Twitter user wrote.
“This is either an elaborate SNL skit or I’m being pranked,” another wrote.

Wtf is this shit? This looks like a bad SNL parody of The Fairly Oddparents.
The fact that this show manages to find new lows of shit to sink down to while just not dying is astonishing. https://t.co/z8leXKvvVQ

Remember when I’ve always said that The Fairly OddParents died a slow and painful death?
Well now it’s come back with a vengeance and became a fucking zombie. https://t.co/fHUGbU2pFi

Created by Butch Harman, The Fairly OddParents originally spanned five seasons from 2001 to 2006 on Nickelodeon, before it was revived in 2007 for another five seasons and a television film. The original show concluded in 2017.
In 2011, a live-action television film was released titled A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! Set 13 years after the original series, it starred Drake Bell (Drake & Josh) as a 23-year-old version of Timmy, alongside Daniella Monet as Tootie.
The success of the film led to two sequels: A Fairly Odd Christmas and A Fairly Odd Summer in 2012 and 2014 respectively.
The Fairly OddParents: Fairly Odder will be released on Paramount+ on March 31 in the US.
