Richie Rich Series Is Heading to Netflix

TIME

Soon you’ll be able to watch Richie Rich on Netflix.

The 1980’s cartoon is getting a live-action reboot to be hosted exclusively on Netflix, The Wrapreports. The half-hour comedy series will have a 21-episode run, debuting in early 2015.

The show will star Jake Brennan, known for his appearance in the 2013 thriller Dark Skies. The plot varies a bit from the classic tale of a young boy who has everything and more, with Brennan’s Richie falling into extreme wealth after inventing new green technology. AwesomenessTV, a DreamWorks Animation-owned multi-channel network that makes kid-friendly shows and videos, is producing the show.

Here’s hoping this version is better than the 1990s film starring Macaulay Culkin.
