Sorry, ’80s kids. Your window of importance to the nostalgia-machine is coming to an end. The ’90s are back and they’re bringing all of their movies and shows along for the ride.
The latest splash of ’90s-flavored news (we’ll be fully submerged in pure liquid ’90s by 2018 or so) is that Nickelodeon, the curator of the average Millennial’s childhood television intake, is planning to reach into their back catalog for new content. That means that several of the most popular shows from a very specific era of Nickelodeon may be seeing the light of day once more. First up is Hey Arnold, the animated series that debuted in 1996 and inspired a theatrical film in 2002 before being axed in 2004. Nickelodeon has revealed that a television movie tying up the loose ends from the series is on the way with original series creator Craig Bartlett on board as a writer and executive producer.
