Clarissa Explains It All Reboot With Melissa Joan Hart in the Works

Share

Nickelodeon has confirmed that it will be rebooting the classic show Clarissa Explains It All with the original director and star.

Clarissa Explains It All ran on Nickelodeon from 1991 to 1994, and if you were a young girl during those years then you probably watched numerous show's 65 episodes, as the series created a cult audience over its five seasons.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/clarissa-explains-it-all-reboot-starring-melissa-joan-hart-works-at-nickelodeon-1094940) that Melissa Joan Hart would reprise her role as Clarissa Darling, only this time she would be a mother of a family.

Series creator Mitchell Kriegman is also in talks to return to write and executive produce. Its success led to other female-fronted series including The Secret World of Alex Mack and more. The Clarissa Explains It All revival is still in early development, but the biggest change is that Clarissa will now be all grown up (obviously) and a mother herself. Hart played Clarissa, a teenager who talked to the audience as she dealt with things a teenage girl normally deals with.

While the star is excited for the Clarissa reboot, she wasn't as keen on Netflix's new dark twist on Sabrina, which is now in the works. That show is going to be given a Riverdale-style makeover and rebooted by Netflix as a dark coming-of-age story that names both Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist as inspirations.

Clarissa Explains It All is in the process of being rebooted by the Viacom-owned cable network, and early discussions are already taking place about producing new episodes! I know people really want to see Sabrina, but I think we ended it on such a great note I don't think you could end it better...

Last month, Hart spoke about the possibility of revisiting the series, explaining she felt the original show's finale didn't have any real closure.
