The Diary of a Wimpy Kid TV Series is an animated tv series on the Paradox Network and the 21st overall tv series to arrive on the network. The show was created by Benjamin Marvin.


The Diary of a Wimpy Kid TV series was originally proposed to the Paradox Network by Jeff Kinney in summer 2018 as an attempt to follow in My Weird School's foot steps. The distribution rights to Diary of a Wimpy Kid was up in the air following The Long Haul movie. Paradox and Fox split the rights. Fox retained film rights, and they shared the rights to animated and live action tv series.

The show will be fully animated and will feature the entire original cast from the first three movies and its composer Edward Shermur. It was revealed that through digital manipulation, Zachary Gordon and Robert Capron would sound like they did in the Rodrick Rules film.

Not much was revealed about the show except that the first season would contain 18 episodes and would loosely follow the books. The networks did reveal the first four episodes however.

The show takes place in Westmore Middle School in plainview Massachusetts and follows the wacky adventures of Greg and the people around him.

Following the Disney-Fox Merger, Brooke Jordan confirmed that the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series would continue despite Disney's announcement of a new Diary of A Wimpy Kid series on Disney+. In late 2020, Paradox would make a $600 million dollar for the entirety of Disney's stake in Wimpy Kid.

Brooke Jordan had confirmed in July 2020 that season two would contain more original stories, following the structure of My Weird School
