Never underestimate the power of nostalgia. Fresh off the news that the aptly dubbed The Splat would start delivering eight-hour blocks of 90s classics on the network, Nickelodeon is now reportedly working on a Hey Arnold! TV movie because
of that aforementioned power of nostalgia it's a confirmed classic.
Nick is currently developing a "new TV movie" that will reportedly feature a storyline that "picks up where the original series ended," according to Variety. The movie is also believed to (finally!) answer questions like "What happened to Arnold’s parents?" and "Where can I cop Arnold’s fit?" One of those isn’t true.
"Kids who grew up on these characters are now of the age that they are having kids and families themselves," Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon Group’s content development president, tells Variety. "Our library has come to fruition and it’s time for it to start coming back to life." As The Splat’s impressive promo campaign made quite obvious, this forthcoming Hey Arnold! movie is part of a company-wide push to revive the classics for future generations.
