Looks like Clarissa herself, Melissa Joan Hart, will be back to explain it all again. Only this time, she'll be a mom addressing the audience in an updated version of "Clarissa Explains It All.

THR reports that Nickelodeon is working on making the '90s favorite its latest reboot, after "Blue's Clues."

"Clarissa" series creator Mitchell Kriegman is also in talks to return to write and exec produce, according to THR. The original series, which ran from 1991 to 1994, featured teenager Clarissa dealing with school, boys and family problems.

In February, Hart told THR she'd love to see more "Clarissa."

"I like the way we left 'Sabrina [The Teenage Witch]'," she says of her her other '90s series, which is getting a darker reboot as a tie-in to "Riverdale." (Hart said she was "indifferent" to the revival.)

Hart added, "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 — it sort of ended."

Since "Clarissa" and "Sabrina," Hart has appeared on "Dancing With the Stars," and starred in the series "Melissa & Joey." She's also started directing, including a remake of the '80s Disney thriller "The Watcher in the Woods."

She recently shared a "Clarissa" flashback on Instagram from an account that posts about "Every Outfit on Clarissa."
