Oh, bring on the childhood memories! Because some of our favourite Nickelodeon shows might be making their way back to us soon 😀
In a report by Variety, Nickelodeon said that it’s looking to revive some of its classic programmes back to its slate.
“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” said Russell Hicks, the president of content and development for Nickelodeon.
Our favourite shows to be made “in a fresh new way”? This phrase could mean a lot of things. Hicks could be presenting these series in a movie form, or just one-off specials. If anything, the network might just decide on making a few spin-off series instead.
Case in point, “Rugrats: All Grown Up!”.
The series takes place about 10 years after the original “Rugrats” TV series where the characters are pre-teen to teenage.
As of now, no shows are revealed to be in the slate of Nickelodeon’s revival plans yet. In fact, the revival plans may just be a small part of the company’s development efforts as Hicks noted that the generation who grew up watching these series are now grown-ups with children of their own.
Therefore, these revival series may only appeal to modern parents while the network tries to make them appealing to the newer generation.
We are getting ready to bring back some of the ones they’ve told us multiple times they want to have brought back.
You could say that the network has quietly began their revival plans as Kel Mitchell, who starred in Nickelodeon’s “Kenan & Kel”, already has a primary role in Nickelodeon’s upcoming live-action sitcom “Game Shakers”.
Matt Bennett and Yvette Nicole Brown will reprise their respective roles from “Victorious” and “Drake and Josh” too.
From “Hey Arnold!” to “You Can’t Do That on Television” to “Doug”, there are just so many classic programmes the network could bring back.
