Melissa Joan Hart Reveals What She Would Want to See from a 'Clarissa Explains It All' Reboot

Actor Melissa Joan Hart has revealed what she would want to see from Nickelodeon's planned Clarissa Explains It All reboot!

The original series ran for 65 episodes on Nickelodeon from 1991 to 1994 and starred the actor as Clarissa Darling, a teen who spoke directly to the audience as she tried to deal with her problems including family, boys and school.

Earlier this year, there were reports that the series was set for a reboot - with Melissa Joan Hart once again taking on the role. Only, this time, she would be playing the mum of the family.

During an appearance on People Now to promote her upcoming new Lifetime holiday movie A Very Nutty Christmas, the actor weighed in on the possible reboot - as well as what she would most like to see from the role.

She said: "It's all moving pieces; it took us years to even draw up contracts - but there's a possibility. That doesn't mean it's going to go anywhere, though."

Explaining how there were "numerous different ways" a reboot could go, Melissa added that she would like the new adaptation to be "a mother and daughter two hander kind of show" similar to Gilmore Girls.

I'd totally be on board with this!

You can watch Melissa in Lifetime's brand-new holiday film A Very Nutty Christmas, airing 11/30 at 8PM ET/PT!

Update (12/4): Melissa Joan Hart talked a bit more about the Clarissa Explains It All reimagining currently in limbo during an interview with the HuffPost at Build Series

“We were in negotiations, so there is a contract,” Hart said of a possible Clarissa return. “So that was leaked. But there is nothing right now happening with that. And Nickelodeon is in flux right now, the network itself. … It depends on what shape the show takes. Is it going to be a kids’ show? Is it going to be a family show? More like Gilmore Girls? Is it going to actually be just the kids and I pop in once in a while and I go, ‘Don’t do that, kids’? I hope not.”
