Nickelodeon is in talks to reboot “Clarissa Explains It All,” TheWrap is told. And yes, it will star Melissa Joan Hart again.

Series creator Mitchell Kriegman is also in conversations to write and executive produce this new version, which will see Hart’s Clarissa Darling as a mom.

Hart will executive produce the remake via her Hartbreak Films banner.

Nickelodeon declined comment on the talks when reached by TheWrap.

“Clarissa” followed Hart as a teenager, navigating the confusing life stage alongside her friend Sam (Sean O’Neal) and annoying little brother Ferguson (Jason Zimbler). Clarissa would often break the fourth wall to address viewers directly.

The original show ran for five seasons from 1991 to 1994 on Nick. After “Clarissa” ended, Hart starred on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” which itself is currently being rebooted at Netflix, though the actress, producer and director is not attached to that one.

You’re next, “Melissa and Joey”?

THR first reported the news of the “Clarissa” talks.
