In the novel, 20-something Clarissa “tries to navigate the unemployment line, mompreneurs, and the collision of two people in love.”
Unlike many reboots, the new Clarissa Explains It All series is poised to stay at its original home. In recent years Nick has worked to bring back several hit shows, including Hey, Arnold, Rocko’s Modern Life, and Blue’s Clues.
