Nickelodeon's hit 90s American animated series “Hey Arnold!” might return to television as a movie. The series, which ran between 1996 and 2004, focused on a fourth-grader named Arnold who lived with his grandparents in a boarding house.

The television movie will pick up from a point where the series ended, reports Variety. It also aims to deal with a plot of Arnold's missing parents. The series premiered on Nickelodeon on Oct. 7, 1996 and the last episode of “Hey Arnold!” aired on June 8, 2004.

The channel has not yet announced the air date of the movie but this is not the first time that “Hey Arnold!” is made into a movie. The series made a theatrical debut in 2002 with “Hey Arnold!: The Movie,” which was not a major box-office success. All five Seasons of “Hey Arnold!” are also available on DVD and the re-runs of the show currently air on the TeenNick block “The Splat.”

Nickelodeon also announced the news on its Twitter account.

Meanwhile, fans of the show are excited about its revival and have poured their thoughts on the social network. Watch one such video below:

With the revival of this series, the kid's channel is focusing on its ideology to let the young generation become aware of the channel's shows in the past. In a bid to work on this strategy, Nickelodeon has also named Chris Viscardi as its senior vice president of content development for franchise properties, Variety added.

Viscardi is also the co-creator of the classic Nickelodeon series, “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.” He will work towards reviving the content of many old shows, including “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “SpongeBob SquarePants” and “Dora The Explorer.”

Russell Hicks, president, content development and production, for Nickelodeon Group, echoed the same sentiments. “Kids who grew up on these characters are now of the age that they are having kids and families themselves,” Hicks told Variety. “Our library has come to fruition and it’s time for it to start coming back to life,” he added.
