Melissa Joan Hart Reveals Mitchell Kriegman In Talks To Revive Nickelodeon Classic "Clarissa Explains it All"

Melissa Joan Hart has revealed in super interview with Yahoo!'s Superfan TV that Clarissa Explains it All might make a comeback!


In the interview, when asked about the possibility of a Clarissa Explains It All revival, the sitcom star revealed that “there is a little talk about Clarissa right now, possibly doing a special or something,” and that she knows Mitchell Kriegman​, the creator of Clarissa Explains It All, is actively pursuing plans to revive the '90s Nickelodeon favorite, which ran from 1991 to 1994 and last year celebrated its 25th anniversary!

However, Melissa also mentioned that for the actor to reprise her role as the shows heroine, 'Clarissa Darling', a reboot would have to be really smart and really well done.


In 2016, to celebrate the comedy show's landmark anniversary, three-time Emmy Award-winner Kriegman released the book Things I Can't Explain: A Clarissa Novel, a complete re-imagining of the 1990s television hit starring a 20-something Clarissa who tries to navigate the unemployment line, mompreneurs and the collision of two people in love.

Last year, Melissa revealed that there was some talk about reviving Clarissa, and that Mitchell was in talks with Nickelodeon and working on trying to come up with an idea to revive Clarissa Explains it All.


What about a reboot of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch? In the interview, Hart says fans might just might see Sabrina pop up in the CW’s hit series Riverdale in the near future!

Sabrina the Teenage Witch ran from 1996 to 2000 on ABC, followed by The WB, and spanned a total of seven seasons. Both Clarissa Explains it All and Sabrina the Teenage Witch were firm fan favourites on Nickelodeon UK, regularly winning Watch Your Own Wednesday, Watch Your Own Week, and Head-To-Head battles.


In the same interview, Melissa's close friend and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch co-star Soleil Moon Frye [Roxie King] also talks about reviving her hit '80s comedy series Punky Brewster!

From 1984 to 1988, Punky Brewster was an icon to little girls everywhere. Nearly 30 years after the finale, that still holds true for women who grew up with the hit sitcom, as well as a new generation of young girls — one of them being Soleil's daughter, Jagger, who bears a striking resemblance to Punky, played by her mother.

It seems Frye is all in for a Punky reboot, and she even has some ideas about who could play the part.


“My daughter, who is 9, thinks that she is Punky Brewster,” says Frye, adding, “I look at my little Punky in my daughter, and I’m like, you want to do it? Sure, I’d be totally into helping. She loves it.”
