The new generation of preschoolers can solve the mysteries of the paw prints with Blue’s Clues — I admit the younger me is super stoked.
Nickelodeon announced on Tuesday “Blue’s Clues” will be returning with a “refreshed signature look,” according to a report from Entertainment Weekly. The network ordered 20 episodes and casting for the host role will be held in California on April 14th.
The shows first episode was aired on September 8, 1996 — Steve, who was Blue’s owner, welcomed his preschool audience to the “Blue’s Clues” house, where his animated puppy, Blue, helps find three clues to something they are trying to figure out. Viewers are invited to participate, with Blue and her friends stopping to listen to what the audience has to say.
“The new, modern version of ‘Blue’s Clues’ will capture all the original’s creativity and visual identity for a whole new audience ready for its fun adventures and expertly designed problem-solving curriculum,” Cyma Zarghami, the president of Nickelodeon Group, said in a statement.
