A New Drake & Josh Show May Be On The Way

Drake Bell says it won't be a "college years"-type show, but something "more creative" instead.


The classic Nickelodeon sitcom Drake & Josh is one of the network's most beloved programs, so fans have been understandably excited about rumours of a reboot. Now, Drake Bell himself has come forward to discuss what might be coming up next.

Bell told E! that he and co-star Josh Peck have been talking, and Peck has come up with "some cool ideas" for what to do with a new version of Drake & Josh. Bell added that neither he nor Peck want to do a reboot or a "college years"-type version of the show.

"It has to be something cool; it has to be something creative. I think we've come up with something that's a little bit more creative and a little more exciting," he said.

That's all Bell had to say on the matter, which is to be expected given that the new show--if it is even a show--hasn't been announced yet.

The original Drake & Josh aired on Nickelodeon from 2004 to 2007. Bell and Peck play stepbrothers who don't see eye-to-eye on much, with Miranda Cosgrove starring as their sister, Megan. A source told People that the new version would be "more adult."

The show was known for its wacky humour, and Bell--who is also a musician in real life--wrote the show's theme song, "Found A Way." According to People, the new version of Drake & Josh is being shopped around to multiple networks, though none were named.

Drake & Josh would be just the latest reboot--or whatever you want to call it--based on a Nickelodeon show. Nickelodeon is making new All That and Are You Afraid of the Dark shows, while Bell has also talked about the possibility of an Amanda Show reboot.
