NEW YORK, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Nickelodeon is looking to bring back one of its most beloved series, Hey Arnold! by developing a new television movie.
The series which ran from 1996 to 2004 focused on Arnold, a fourth-grader with a football shaped head who lives with his grandparents inside a boarding house. Arnold often joined his best friend Gerald and Helga, a girl who bullies Arnold in order to hide her true love, in order to help out fellow classmates with personal problems or to explore the fictional city of Hillwood.
According to Variety, the new project will explore the whereabouts of Arnold's parents, a hanging plot line from the original series that was never resolved.
Back in September, Nickelodeon announced that they were interested in revamping some of their classic animated shows from the 90s including Rugrats and The Ren & Stimpy Show. "We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way," Nickelodeon President of content and development Russell Hicks said at the time.
"Kids who grew up on these characters are now of the age that they are having kids and families themselves," said Russell Hicks, president, content development and production, for Nickelodeon Group, in an interview with Variety. "Our library has come to fruition and it's time for it to start coming back to life."
In October, Nickelodeon launched The Splat, a block of programming seen on Teen Nick that features the network's collection of hit shows from the '90s.
