Networks are all about the reboots these days. Conversations on social media show that fans want to bring back our beloved shows, and networks have been listening. Nickelodeon is now ready to do the same. According to Variety, the network is revamping its lineup with old shows from yesteryear, from when the network first began.
Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s president of content and marketing said that Nickelodeon wants to bring back the nostalgic shows for its fresh, new, audience. While Hicks hasn’t said exactly what shows its chosen to bring back, Nickelodeon sure has a plethora of fan favorites in its vault to break out.
That means, viewers may get a chance to catch Rugrats, Doug, Welcome Freshman, and Ren & Stimpy. Okay, maybe Ren & Stimpy is a bit too much for today’s children, but here’s hoping.
“We are getting ready to bring back some of the ones they’ve told us multiple times they want to have brought back,” said Hicks.
Welcome Freshman (1991-1993)
The Ren & Stimpy Show (1991-1995)
Wild & Crazy Kids (1990-1992)
