Status Cancelled/Lost

In early 2011, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane announced he would be reviving The Flintstones, but for a Fox audience, as he was a fan of the original series from the 60's. The first episode of that rebooted series would have aired in 2013.

Little was known about the project for a while, even if it was still being developed or not. Production of MacFarlane's 2012 film, Ted also made people believe it was cancelled.

When asked about the progress of The Flintstones at a convention to raise awareness about Ted, MacFarlane confirmed that whatever he had completed was shelved because Fox didn't think that an adult-oriented The Flintstones would be appealing to a large audience.

There are no more informations about the project's development and no element of whatever material has been made has been shown.

Flintstones went above the age limit of it most of the time anyway so he wouldn't have had an issue with his new no limits version as they pushed the limit anyway.

My brother actually works for Fox, and says that he was able to watch about 15 minutes of the pilot. He didn't really give much detail on the pilot, however, except the fact that they had the original character designs and that there were a lot of "iPod jokes." I'll be sure to contact my brother to see if he can give any more detail, but for now, this is probably the closest we're gonna get.

I remember hearing about how Seth was going to make a remake of The Flintstones, but it never happened. To be honest I'm kinda glad that this was cancelled because after looking at the newer seasons of Family Guy and how virtually every episode has been relying on mostly shock humor and humorless cutaway gags, one could assume that The Flintstones revival series wouldn't have been any better. But that's my own opinion.

I think some things are better left undiscovered.
