There was a picture that floated around Twitter some time last month that said all of our beloved 90’s Nick shows were coming back…but there was no source so I was pretty skeptical. I mean, us 20-somethings who grew up on shows like All That, Clarissa Explains It All, Salute Your Shorts, Double Dare, etc…we’ve been lobbying to get these back on TV for years. There are countless Facebook pages and online petitions dedicated to bringing them back and FINALLY, it looks like Nickelodeon has heard our pleas!! They’re coming back!!!! I literally am smiling ear to ear. Guys….I loved Clarissa Explains It All So Much….I asked my parents to officially change my name to Clarissa LMAO (it obviously didn’t happen though)…I was her for Halloween…everything!! This is such a fun piece of our childhood we will get to experience again. Hit the jump for details!!


(Entertainment Weekly) – EW has learned exclusively that starting this fall, TeenNick will dust off old faves like Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Pete & Pete, The Amanda Bynes Show, All That and Clarissa and air them in a new midnight-to-2 a.m. programming block dubbed (appropriately enough) The ’90s Are All That. The tween cabler came up with the idea after seeing the huge interest in early Nickelodeon programming on social media sites. There are several Facebook pages — followed by millions of fans — that are devoted to Nickelodeon shows from the ’90s.

“At the time, we were completely devoted to that audience ages 9, 10, and 11,” Keith Dawkins, senior VP and general manager of TeenNick, tells EW. “It was ground-breaking and for the young viewers, a powerful and pivotal time in their lives. Those kids who are now 22, 23 and 24 want to bring that back.”

Over time, TeenNick hopes to use the retro block to showcase other ’90s programming and movies.
