'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot Is Apparently In The Works, And Melissa Joan Hart Is Involved

- Page 1

We first met Melissa Joan Hart in 1991 when she stepped onto the scene as Clarissa Darling. She was cool, unique, and iconic in her time. She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show.

But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis?

Her show was different then a lot of others, because she would directly address the audience. She dealt with things that we were all going through, like crushes, jobs, and homework, so it was really relatable to us kids.

Honestly, a big selling point was that her outfits were absolutely epic.

The show was on for five seasons, and in 65 episodes we all became completely obsessed with her. But now, after being off the air for 24 years, Clarissa Darling is coming back.

Nickelodeon recently announced that Blue's Clues, their hugely successful kid's show would be back for a reboot, and apparently that's not the only show that the popular network has its eye on.

This wouldn't be the only time that we would return to Clarissa, as in 2015, the series creator, Mitchell Kriegman, wrote a novel called Things I Can't Explain, which followed Clarissa into her late 20s. While a lot of people may not have realized that this book existed, this new series will be a little bit more well known, especially if Melissa Joan Hart herself joins back in.

And so far, the rumors are looking good...

As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

13 Secrets From The Set Of 'Married With Children' That'll Make You Believe In Love And Marriage

Married...With Children is one of those shows that felt different from all the rest. Every other sitcom was trying to put forward this false homage to the happy family, but honestly, that's not the way the real world was. There is always a little bit of conflict in the real world. We don't all get along all the time and yes, sometimes we can be a little inappropriate. The only family that seemed to give us a more accurate representation of family life was the Bundys. Al Bundy was a little bit rough around the edges, and Peggy was
