Blue has come a long way since the ’90s.
Nickelodeon is following the reboot wave. The next project on its list? A new and improved version of Blue’s Clues, the mega popular ’90s show for kids that featured Steve Burns and his animated puppy companion. Together, the two presented viewers with three clues that would help them solve a mystery. Now, Nick is bringing the interactive experience to the youth of 2018.
The network is reportedly casting a new host despite Burns’s desire to return to the show.
“It seems to me that Blue’s Clues is returning now because somehow, all of the kids that I befriended way back when have kids,” said Burns, who hosted the show from 1996-2002. “From everything we understand about it, the millennial generation is extra super-duper nostalgic, and to think that they have such warm, fond memories of Blue’s Clues — and of me — is truly super cool and wonderful and warm and fuzzy.”
According to E! News, the reboot will rock a “refreshed signature look,” and if the new Blue is any indication, it’s going to look amazing.
“The new, modern version of Blue’s Clues will capture all the original’s creativity and visual identity for a whole new audience ready for its fun adventures and expertly designed problem-solving curriculum,” said Cyma Zarghami, president of Nickelodeon Group.
I think we have enough clues to know this reboot is going to be the best. We’re just hoping Magenta (the little pink-ish pup above) gets the same makeover.
