"Celebrity Deathmatch" technically aired from 1998 to 2007 but is considered a staple to 90's television! 

It looks like the stop-motion animation series is coming back with the help of Ice Cube.

President of MTV, Chris McCarthy said "everyone was excited to grow our partnership with Ice Cube and Cube Vision to reimagine this fan favorite. Deathmatch was the meme before memes, remains a hot topic on social media and will be a smart, funny way to tackle the over-the-top rhetoric of today's pop culture where it belongs — in the wrestling ring."

Cube said he was "happy to once again be working with Viacom and MTV on a fan favorite like Celebrity Deathmatch and to continue our success together."

The show is supposed to premiere sometime in 2019 and will be a weekly series.
