Hey Arnold! is coming back, and possibly Rugrats too

Welcome back, Football Head

It looks like Nickelodeon is going to give the people what they want, and revive a bunch of 90s kids shows that there is still palpable nostalgia for.

A Nickelodeon insider told The Independent that a Hey Arnold! return is very much on the cards, while Rugrats could soon be back on our screens too.

“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” Russell Hicks, president of content and development at Nickelodeon, told Variety.

You Can’t Do That on Television and Victorious are also rumoured to be revamped, though these potential commissions would likely be in the form of one-off specials rather than full seasons.

While more modern shows like SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and iCarly have been big for Nickelodeon, the network is keen to cater to grown-up kids who now have children of their own.

“We are getting ready to bring back some of the ones they’ve told us multiple times they want to have brought back,” Hicks said.

Delving into their back catalogue, this could also spell a return for Doug, Clarissa and more.
