"Rocko's Modern Life" to Return as TV Movie

Nickelodeon has heard your prayers, and has finally ordered a revival of the 1990s series "Rocko's Modern Life," this time as a TV movie.

Created by Joe Murray, the series aired from 1993 to 1996 and followed a wallaby named Rocko and his friends through their wacky adventures in the fictional city O-Town. The one-hour movie will reunite everyone's favorite characters, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“I’m very happy to be rejoining Rocko and my friends from O-Town again,” Murray, who will executive produce and co-direct the film, said in a statement. “What I have found by bringing these characters back is that it’s not so much about nostalgia, but a sense that they still feel relevant and fresh to me, and after 20 years, they can’t wait to comment on modern life in the 21st century. They still have a lot to say.”

The film joins the upcoming "Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie" in a list of recent reboots of popular Nick properties.
