Growing up in the late 90’s-early 2000’s, I vaguely remember watching this show through reruns on Nickelodeon. While I wouldn’t call myself a fan, I at least have been intrigued by Nickelodeon’s interest in revisiting some of their older properties. I was very impressed with Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie from a few months ago, and rumors about a sixth season being in the works have recently surfaced. Of course, there’s also upcoming TV movies for Rocko’s Modern Life, Invader Zim, and a revival of Blue’s Clues coming soon.
In any case, I think it’s great that Nickelodeon is planning to bring all these old shows back for a new generation of kids.March 17, 2018 at 6:00 am #1202514794
LOVED this show. Even the weird kid that didn’t use the front door to go visit her…becuase using a ladder to climb into your best friends room wasn’t creepy in the 90s lol. She is probably going to end up married to him lol

Now, Nickelodeon will be bringing back Double Dare this summer!
Of course it does after all the years of me pining to be on the show when I was a kid. Hopefully its family style and I can get me cousin to try out and bring his fun older cousin lolApril 26, 2018 at 5:43 pm #1202536179
I guess this is a better idea for MJH than a Sabrina reboot; but knowing what MJH is like now makes me wonder if she still has the chops to play a character as weird, odd and endearing as Clarissa Darling was.
That said, this was one of my favorite shows as a kid, I’m glad it’s getting a reboot! I like this trend at Nickelodeon of rebooting older properties; I just hope for the day somebody brings back The Roundhouse!May 22, 2018 at 6:20 am #1202551714
The official return date for Double Dare will be June 25th, and Marc Summers will be back in a new role.

I wonder if they’ll be doing a reboot of All That next.May 29, 2018 at 5:55 am #1202555189
Given that Nickelodeon has recently ended its business relationship with Dan Schneider, it would probably be a long shot for All That to get revived (though I guess it could still go on without him).May 29, 2018 at 8:28 am #1202555256
I persoanlly wouldn’t want to see All That! brought back. Season 10 was just horrible. I would die if Legends of the Hidden Temple came back. If Nickelodeon is bringing back Double Dare after I can’t be on they might as well kill me by bringing back the show I actually prepped for as a kid.November 1, 2018 at 4:30 pm #1202666531
I wonder if they’ll be doing a reboot of All That next.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Brian Robbins (who recently took over as president of Nickelodeon) talked about the possibility of bringing back All That.

I spent many hours of my early teenage years watching Nickelodeon. Clarissa Explains it All was one of my favorites (along with Are you Afraid of the Dark and Legends of the hidden temple).
With that being said, I don’t know how interested I am in seeing a continuation to this story. I don’t even know if I would be interested I a reboot tbh. That show made sense back then, why not make a new show, that resonates with kids today, instead of updating old stuff?November 11, 2018 at 5:55 pm #1202672886
I know part of the reason why Nickelodeon has been interested in bringing back some of their older properties is because they haven’t had a lot of exciting programs in recent years. Another reason is because a lot of the kids who were watching the network then now have kids of their own.
With some of the revivals they’ve either done already or got coming up, I can understand why. The final Hey Arnold! episode that was ever produced (‘The Journal’) ended on a cliffhanger that was suppose to be resolved in a theatrical film that was originally cancelled due to the disappointing box office results of Hey Arnold!: The Movie. Yet, so many fans had signed petitions and sent letters over the years hoping that The Jungle Movie would ever see the light of day. Luckily, it was finally made and released last year as a TV movie.
With Rocko’s Modern Life, creator Joe Murray originally wasn’t interested in revisiting the series. When Nickelodeon contacted him about doing so, he then asked Doug Lawrence and Martin Olson (who were both writers on the show) about it, and they both came up with an idea that Murray started to get on board with. So the upcoming TV movie titled Static Cling is picking up from where the final produced episode (‘Future Schlock’) took off with Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt arriving back into O-Town after having been in space for 20 years, yet need to adjust to an even more modern life.
With Invader Zim, that show was sadly cancelled during production of the second season, but has since gained a cult following. Luckily, Nickelodeon is giving the property a second chance with an upcoming TV movie titled Enter the Florpus.
With Rugrats, that show was pretty much the SpongeBob SquarePants of its time. It was Nickelodeon’s big cash cow that ran for nine seasons, spawned three feature films, and two spin-offs. So from a commercial standpoint, you can see why the network would want to revisit it. Though from a creative standpoint, it should be interesting because there are people who felt that Rugrats started growing stale after a while. It’s also worth noting that after the first three seasons, production went on hiatus, so Nickelodeon aired reruns every day in the early evenings, where the series then started to take off in pop culture. However, co-creator Paul Germain wasn’t involved with the last six seasons, evening admitting in interviews that he was not a fan of a lot of the direction the series took without him. Though he will be back for the revival.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Melissa Joan Hart says that with the recent management changes at Nickelodeon, the network has cooled its interest in a Clarissa Explains It All revival.
