Rocko, Heffer, Filburt, and yes, Spunky the dog, along with the rest of O-Town are headed back to Nickelodeon for the long-awaited Rocko’s Modern Life revival next year. More than twenty years after it first went off the air, one of the most fondly remembered shows of Nickelodeon’s golden age is coming back for a special TV movie. The good news? The entire original cast is set to return for the special, which has been given an official title as well.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Nickelodeon has officially titled the upcoming one-hour TV special, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. Joe Murray, who created the original series, is on board to write and executive produce the special for the network, which is another very important piece of the puzzle for fans. Here’s the synopsis for Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. And yes, Rock and the gang have been in outer space for more than two decades.
“[Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling] brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.”
Nickelodeon has yet to set a release date for the special yet, but we will be sure to keep you up to date as more information is made available!
