I'm still getting over the shock of learning that there will soon be a Spongebob Squarepants musical on Broadway — and now Nickelodeon goes and teases some major news like this? It's enough to make a girl sing.

Nickelodeon is looking into the possibility of bringing back some of its classic shows, the network's president of content and development, Russell Hicks, told Variety in an interview published Wednesday.

“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” Hicks said.

What that means exactly is still a bit vague. The network plans on experimenting "with retooled versions of classics," according to Variety. Some of those past shows could include Nicktoons like Rugrats and Hey Arnold!, the sketch comedy show You Can't Do That on Television or the more contemporary tween sitcom Victorious.

However, these beloved properties might not come back as full-fledged series, which will probably make your '90s kid heart sink a little. Instead, they might appear in other formats, such as a movie or a special.

This wouldn't be the first time Nick has gotten all nostalgic on us. You can find classic Nickelodeon shows like Rugrats, Hey Arnold! and Catdog currently playing on Nick's slightly more mature cable channel TeenNick — appropriately dubbed "The '90s Are All That" programming block, after the popular Nick sketch show All That. As Variety also points out, Kel Mitchell – one-half of the comedy duo at the helm of Kenan & Kel – will appear on the upcoming Nick sitcom Game Shakers, which premieres on the network September 12. So pour yourself a glass of orange soda, and get ready to toast the past.
