"Here's the mail, it never fails, it makes me wanna wag my tail. When it comes I wanna wail, 'MAILLLLLLLLLL!'" Well, have we got some mail for you, friends: beloved children's show Blue's Clues is officially getting the reboot treatment at Nickelodeon. That means that millennial parents will be able to share the '90s classic that they loved growing up with a whole new generation of little ones, just with a fresh twist.
There's no word yet about who will fill the shoes — err, green striped shirt — of memorable former host Steve (sorry, Joe!), but Deadline reports that casting will begin for the role in mid-April. And it's not just the host that will change in the reboot, either. Viacom's Nickelodeon Group president, Cyma Zarghami, told the publication:
"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."
Essentially, there will be nostalgic elements of the '90s show that return in the new series, but it will be reinterpreted for today's kids. Does that mean Blue will bid adieu to mail time and have a new method of communication that will make her want to wag her tail? We'll know soon enough!
