Oh, and the best news of it all — even in early talks, Melissa Joan Hart is expected to reprise her role as Clarissa… all grown up and playing the role of a mom!!

In a report out this morning in THR, sources say the entire reboot project is in “early development” stages at Nickelodeon, with series creator Mitchell Kriegman also in talks to return as a writer and executive producer.

Nickelodeon refused to comment for the story, but sources explained it all.

The original series was very successful for Nick, running for a total of 65 episodes over five seasons from 1991 to 1994 with Hart as Clarissa, the smart teenager who engaged her audience directly as she dealt with the inevitable problems of growing up.

Ironically, Hart spoke to THR just a couple months ago about the possibility of Clarissa getting rebooted, comparing it to her other hit show, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, and saying (below):

“I like the way we left Sabrina. I think Sabrina ended on a really great note, and I don’t think you want to go back and explore that. At the same time, I think Clarissa ended on a note that could be explored again, because it didn’t really have an ending ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ it sort of ended.”

And now, here we are!!!
