Regular Show is an American animated TV series that pivots around the lives and misadventures of two friends, a six-foot tall blue jay named Mordecai and a hyperactive raccoon named Rigby. The Emmy-winning series was created by J.G. Quintet, season 1 of the Regular Show debuted on the Cartoon Network on September 6, 2010.
Loosely based on Quintel’s college experiences, and inspired by The Simpsons and Beavis and Butthead, the characters of Regular Show include Mordecai, Rigby, Muscle Man, Hi-Five Ghost, Skips, Thomas, Margaret, Eileen, Benson, Pops and CJ who work at a state park in Tucker, Georgia. Quintel pitched the series as part of Cartoonstitute, a project to showcase short films created without the sometimes buzz killing ideas of network executives and audience focus testing. After hearing the idea, Cartoon Network decided to pick up the show for a test run. Fortunately for the network, the show has been a runaway success, garnering an average of 2 to 2.5 million viewers each week and securing multiple award nominations.
Season 7 of Regular Show premiered on June 26, 2015 and after just one month was picked up for another season. With stellar critical acclaim and chart-topping viewer ratings, it was no surprise that Cartoon Network decided to renew Regular Show for season 8. While fans will be happy to know that Mordecai, Rigby and the rest of the gang are coming back for an eighth season, they’ll have to keep an eye out for an official release date sometime in 2016.
