Greetings to all on this average day like any other. Except, perhaps it's not.

The deliberately sensationalist title of this news post can't hide the fact of the matter: Code Lyoko is 20 years old and ended over 15 years ago (we won't talk about CLE, on principle).
This is why we first invite you to watch the video below (largely in a mix of English and French, all with Spanish subtitles), particularly the exchange that happens at


Before we dig into it, we need to provide some context (and credit).

This video was published on the Spanish channel
Tertulia Tiztazo, which is two months old and aims to cover various thematic subjects with each release (so nothing directly to do with Code Lyoko at its core), presented by José Tistazo. A new challenger in the now famous YouTube game has dropped a meteor on our modest little community. It may have flown under the radar...if our KaruzoHikari (known for his work on the Code Lyoko Sprite Game page) hasn't been on the alert for a non-extinction event!

So, back to the subject at hand: this huge bit of information (the potential return of Code Lyoko, no less) was first announced by French people speaking English with Spanish subtitles, on a channel with only two videos? I'm going to pre-empt the more suspicious among you: it sounds like it could be AI-generated, a fake. "Another one of X.A.N.A.'s tricks," as some members of the community would say.

But look, while nothing has been confirmed, the famous Sophie Decroisette (the former head writer) and Jérôme Mouscadet (the former director) have teased the future of the Code Lyoko licence. Despite being in franglish, their words are clear and apparently carefully weighed out. is committed to relaying information from media sources both prominent and independent, but we'll refrain from saying anything definitive: is this the first step in a series of promising news to come, or something that will never come to fruition, like the old MMORPG? Or worse yet, a project that does get finished, but ends up being pretty terrible? That part of the video never mentions CLE, which is already good news in and of itself, and something that lets us finish this news post on an encouraging note.
