Nickelodeon has brought back some classic shows from the ’90s and put them on late at night on Teen Nick and so far it’s been a huge hit amongst twenty-somethings, including former ’90s Nickelodeon star, Kenan Thompson.
TeenNick started showing old ’90s Nickelodeon shows this week including All That, Clarissa Explains It All, Kenan & Kel and Doug at midnight for two hours and fans are thrilled.
Even Kenan, who starred in All That and Kenan & Kel, understands how this age group of fans feels nostalgic for those shows.
“We’re all at that age now where we’re night owls; everybody’s up anyway,” he explained to MTV News. “It’s a good idea for a spot. It’s crazy that it’s working because it’s like 10-year-old material that’s holding up against these shows.”
And he was very “excited” by the public response to the revival of those shows.
“I thought it was crazy, “Kenan said of when he first heard about the shows returning to Teen Nick. “It was very complimentary and felt really nice of them to do that, and it’s all fan requested and then that made it even better.”
Kenan also thinks he knows why the shows are so loved.
“That’s always made kids feel good watching it,” he said. “We were doing relatable material, and it wasn’t so forced. We just happened to be kids doing stuff.”
