Nickelodeon In Talks to Reboot 'Clarissa Explains It All'

Series creator Mitchell Kriegman is also in talks to return to write and executive produce.

Clarissa Explains It All was a TV show from the 90s that was incredibly popular on the kids channel, Nickelodeon. Her reported role as mom on the newClarissarebootshouldn't be a stretch for Hart, who has three sons of her own (and whoapparently have zero interest in their mother's past acting roles).

A reboot of Nickelodeon's '90s sitcom "Clarissa Explains It All" is in early development, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nickelodeon declined comment as deals with both Hart and Kriegman are not done. This led the way to future female-fronted Nick shows like The Secret World of Alex Mack. The show was about a teenager who broke the fourth wall (take that, Frank Underwood), speaking directly to the audience to explain whatever issues she was going through that week. Don't expect any wise-cracking talking cat puppets to accompany this Sabrina: In a press release, Netflix advertised the Untitled Sabrina Project, helmedby Riverdale executives Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Greg Berlanti, as "a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft". I know people really want to see Sabrina, but I think we ended it on such a great note I don't think you could end it better... Details beyond that are scarce, and it's unclear at present if any other original cast members would return alongside Hart. "At the same time, I think Clarissa ended on a note that could be explored again, because it didn't really have an ending - it sort of ended".

Clarissa Explains It All is in the process of being rebooted by the Viacom-owned cable network, and early discussions are already taking place about producing new episodes!

Kriegman revisited the series in 2015 with a novel, Things I Can't Explain, which served as a sequel to the series and followed Clarissa, now in her late 20s, trying to navigate life as an adult.
