Nickelodeon Might Be Bringing Back Some of Our Favourite Shows

 —  By

Time to rejoice: Nickelodeon has announced it’s considering breathing new life into some of their classic TV shoes. They haven’t confirmed which ones they’re looking to revive, but with an extensive back catalogue dating back to 1979, they have plenty to choose from.

Just in case Nickelodeon need a helping hand, here are some we reckon deserve a reboot, even if it is just for a TV movie or a one-off special.


With news that Nickelodeon are considering bringing back some of their classic shows, surely the Rugrats should be at the top of the list?

The last Rugrats episode aired way back in 2004, which makes us feel obscenely old. While we miss Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica and co., we reckon the show will be even better in 2015 now that we can actually understand the subtle adult humour.

While the Nickelodeon show All Grown Up! focused on the group as they entered double digits, it would be fun to see what they would be like now in their mid-20s. Maybe Tommy’s leading expeditions all over the world, Angelica’s the Queen Bitch of the work office, and Chuckie’s finally having therapy for that obvious anxiety disorder.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Aang, Katara, Sokka and co's adventures kept kids amused for years in Avatar: The Last Airbender

It only ended seven years ago, but Avatar: The Last Airbender has got to be one of the greatest Nickelodeon series ever to hit the small screen.

How awesome would a story-arch involving Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph and Zuko’s lives after the final battle with Fire Lord Ozai be? And maybe – just maybe – with a few more series we could begin to forgive Nickelodeon for the monstrosity that was The Last Airbender movie.

Kenan & Kel

Kenan & Kel won the battle of the catchphrases on their Nickelodeon show

Awww, here it goes!

Running for four seasons up until 2000, Kenan & Kel was the perfect mix of teenage shenanigans and risqué humour.

Also, contrary to all those rumours you may have heard, both Kenan and Kel are very much still alive in real life, so maybe they could make a reappearance? There’s so much they got build on: maybe Kel’s got his own Orange Soda factory and Kenan’s got his own grocery store? Whatever happens, they’d better get Coolio back for a fresh take on that classic theme tune.

Hey Arnold!

We hear ya, Arnie.

While Hey Arnold! may have had a good run of eight years, we miss the adventures of our favourite football head. Plus, we’ve got to find out whether Arnold and Helga actually ended up together? Perhaps they finally realise they’re made for each other and create beautiful blonde-haired, unibrowed babies.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

Are You Afraid of the Dark gave us many nightmares over the years, and it's one Nickelodeon should definitely bring back

Are You Afraid of the Dark kept us up all night freaking out about clowns, the Sandman and irrational things like typewriters. It’s hardly fair that today’s kids don’t have something similar to keep them in check. Besides, think of all the fun they could have with the episode titles. The Tale of the Selfie Stick? The Possessed Xbox? Fizzy Beverages?
