Nickelodeon, the network responsible for shows like Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude! and The Adventures of Pete and Pete is reportedly considering bringing back some of its classic shows.
“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” Russell Hicks, president of content and development at Nickelodeon, said in an interview with Variety.
Hicks didn’t mention any specific programs by name so it’s not yet clear whether the favorite summer camp show from the early ’90s Salute Your Shorts would be included. Properties from the cable network’s heyday might be brought back as movies or one-off specials, not necessarily full series reboots like Netflix is doing with Fuller House and Disney Channel did with Girl Meets World.
Salute Your Shorts creator Steve Slavkin has said before that he would be interested in a reunion of the show that originated with a book he and Thomas Hill wrote and published in 1986 about their experiences at camp. Many of the actors from the series also seemed open to the idea when they gathered for a reunion at the Everything Is Festival in Portland back in May.
