Hey, this is AMAZING! One of our favorite Nickelodeon series, ‘Hey Arnold!,’ is getting a TV movie over a decade after the show’s final episode aired. The all-new movie will also give us answers about Arnold’s parents!
Hey Arnold! is coming back to TV! Nickelodeon is in the process of developing a Hey Arnold! TV movie, according to a new report! The movie will take place after what went down in the June 2004 series finale of the classic series. Our ’90s kid nostalgia is kicking in big time!
Life is good. The boy whose head is shaped like a football is back! Nickelodeon is currently working on a Hey Arnold! TV movie, our sister site Variety reports. The movie will pick up where the series left off in 2004. The film will also wrap up unanswered plotlines, including the one about Arnold’s parents. His parents were at the center of mystery during the show’s 8-year run.
In the special hour-long 2002 episode “The Journal,” we finally learned more about Arnold’s parents in flashbacks. In the series, October 5 is a tough day for Arnold. It’s the day his parents left him and never came back. In the episode, Arnold finds his dad’s journal, and it takes him down a memory lane of adventure. At the end of the special, Arnold finds a map that his parents took on their final trip to San Lorenzo.
This isn’t the first time Hey Arnold!’s gotten a movie. Arnold and the gang were featured in 2002’s Hey Arnold!: The Movie. Hey, the more Arnold, the better.
A release date for the movie hasn’t been revealed. No further details have been provided, but you can practically guarantee that Helga, Gerald, Stinky, Harold, Phoebe, Rhonda, Brainy and Miriam will all return. Watch Hey Arnold! from the very beginning by buying the series on Amazon now!
