Nickelodeon To Revive Favorites Like ‘Rugrats’ And ‘Hey Arnold!’?
Hey 90s kids, remember those beloved classic cartoons and live-action shows on Nickelodeon? Well, there might—yes, operative word, might be a chance that they will be appearing onscreen once again. Bring on the nostalgia and read on for more details.
In an interview with Variety, Nickelodeon president of content and development Russell Hicks said that the Viacom-owned kiddie network is contemplating on bringing back some its oldest programs, with them not necessarily returning as series, but possibly in formats like a movie or special.
“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” he said.
There were no specifics on which programs are being shortlisted to make their comeback but viewers might just have to wait and see what Hicks meant when he said they are reappearing in a “fresh new way”.
For those who want to take a walk down memory lane, as well as for the younger generations who would like to know what the fuss is all about, Vulture suggests visiting NReboot to get your Nickelodeon fix.
It could be said that some, if not majority of Millenials or people born in the 80s or the 90s (via Dictionary) can’t help but keep their fingers crossed for the possible return of “The Angry Beavers”, “Rocko’s Modern Life”, “Doug”, “Clarissa”, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”, “CatDog’, “All That”, and “Ren and Stimpy”.
Lastly, could the premiere of a new show starring Kel Mitchell, an alum of “Kenan and Kel” be the start of what Hicks was talking about?
Mitchell will be in “Game Shakers”, which according to Nickelodeon, is a sitcom about Babe and Kenzie, 12-year-olds who create Sky Whale for a science project, it then turns out to be the most popular game of the year. The duo instantly become young millionaires but conflict arises when a superstar rapper called Double G (Mitchell) finds out that the girls used one of his songs in their game without permission.
