The news we are going to break to you has the potential to make you jump from your couches and lead you out of your houses in a state of extreme joy. After a successful run of 3 years, the show has been dormant for 11 years. But now, Nickelodeon is perhaps gearing up to bring back its highly acclaimed sitcom, Drake and Josh. Yes, you heard it right! Nickelodeon initially year the utterly hilarious of the two stepbrothers between 2004 and 2007.
While the network still airs its reruns, there has rarely been any indication of its plan to bring back its content mascot. A prime reason for this may be the temporary feud between its lead stars. But now, as the actors have buried the hatchet and moved on, things are promising. Nickelodeon has itself hinted towards a potential comeback of the wildly popular show. While some people believe that the hint has more to do with Victoria justice and Hulu, a comeback season of Drake and Josh is likely in the works on the network.
Nickelodeon Tweets About Drake And Josh Comeback?
Nickelodeon recently tweeted, “I think we ALL love Drake and Josh.” Retweets began to pour in the very next seconds. There was an overwhelming the ardent fans of the show, and they all came up with various reactions to the news. The initial responses expressed surprise, where fans replied to the network with phrases like ‘no, you just didn’t, or shared GIFs to express their astonishment, albeit all in delight.
Nickelodeon, however, did not give any concrete intimation to its audience. Instead, it backed up the retweets ironically, leaving only subtle hints about its plans. Someone even as Nickelodeon in a retweet whether they were bringing back Drake and Josh Nickelodeon shows to answer. Still, without revealing any vital information, it replied to the fan with a maybe.
Do Fans Want Drake And Josh To Return?
Later a fan also expressed anger over the tweet. The fan told Nickelodeon that rebooting shows spoils their legacy. Hence, they should drop all plans to bring back Drake and Josh. Nickelodeon responded to the fan ironically. They tweeted, ‘We aren’t. I am just saying I miss the show.’ The irony, however, was sufficiently tangible. Nickelodeon took on a full caps sentence while replying to the specific fan. And this was because the fan had also posted against the idea in full caps.
Drake And Josh Is Now On Hulu
Some fans, however, debate over the fact that retweeting was meant to make people aware of the obscure reality of Drake and Josh existing on Hulu. While Nickelodeon endorsed such tweets, there was no reason to be so secretive about it. Nickelodeon has previously announced through several tweets that Drake and Josh are available on Hulu too.
Moreover, when people talked about how grateful they were about the show being on Hulu without linking this specific opinion to the tweet, Nickelodeon showed more significant signs of agreement.
Some Fans Think That Nickelodeon Was Mocking Victoria Justice
Some fans, however, completely depart from their take on this issue. They believe that Nickelodeon called out Zoey 101 star Victoria justice in the tweet. There’s a meme on Victoria Justice. It is about a video where the cast members say Ariana Grande sings the most on the set of Victorious, and then Victoria says, “I think we ALL sing!” Drake and Josh’s lead star Drake Bell was unaware of the Victoria justice issue. A Twitter user then served him an explanation of the matter.
Twitter users elaborate that the word ‘ALL’ in the tweet by Nickelodeon is a blatant mockery of the claims made by Victoria Justice. However, there is no concrete backing for the particular speculation. When fans asked Nickelodeon if they had called out at Victoria Justice with their tweet, Nickelodeon ironically denied all claims by saying, ‘ No, we did not.’ Some fans replied by telling Nickelodeon that it was probably lying. But the network defended itself by saying, ‘I tell no lies.’
