Emily Elizabeth and Clifford the Big Red Dog are coming back! And frankly, we’re super excited. Based on the book series by Norman Bridwell, ‘Clifford’ will return to television in 2019. It will be airing on PBS Kids (just like it did back in the day) and Amazon Prime Video, where many PBS Kids shows are available for streaming. After airing in the early 2000s, the show ended after the star, John Ritter died unexpectedly. A retooled version, ‘Clifford’s Puppy Days’ aired for a while after.
So, why now? “There is something enduring in Clifford’s gentle, loyal spirit that touches fans even after they become adults,” said the show’s executive producer Iole Lucchese in a statement. Many children’s stores become classics instantly, and the ‘Big Red Dog’ is no different.
