Clarissa Explains It All Revival in Development at Nickelodeon

Clarissa Explains It All Revival in Development at Nickelodeon

Hart mentioned the reboot of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, another beloved 90's Nickelodeon show that she starred in, which is now being produced by Netflix and will be starring Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men). Shows like Saved by the Bell, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Goosebumps, for instance.

Similar to Boy Meets World sequel series Girl Meets World, Clarissa 2.0 would be a direct continuation of the original series, only now Hart's character would serve as mother of the family. The teen comedy told the story of precocious, sarcastic Clarissa who would break the fourth wall to directly address the audience about her travails in her typical teenage life. Clarissa was constantly surrounded by her family, much to her frequent dismay.

There's no word yet on whether co-stars Jason Zimbler, Sean O'Neal, Elizabeth Hess and Joe O'Connor would reprise their roles on the reboot. It was Nickelodeon's first show with a female lead, and has been credited with opening the door for more series with women at the center. Clarissa signed off for good in December 1994, after producing five seasons.

England head coach Eddie Jones does not think remarks he made about Ireland and Wales will inspire their opponents on Saturday. It is, however, forbidden for an official to help a team if they are going to referee them during the tournament.

The never-ending nostalgia train continues to lurch forward, this time with Nickelodeon looking to revive their hit show Clarissa Explains It All, and former star Melissa Joan Hart and original series creator Mitchell Kriegman are both attached.

A reboot of Nickelodeon's '90s sitcom "Clarissa Explains It All" is in early development, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It should also be interesting to see if any of the other original stars return. One wonders if this book will be considered canon by a potential reboot, as Melissa Joan Hart is now in her early 40s, and thus it wouldn't be too hard to reference the book's events as things that occurred prior to the new show. The book focused on Clarissa in her 20s, and gave fans a glimpse at the adult she grew up to be.
