Way, way back in 2018, we heard that Nickelodeon was pursuing a reboot of its classic kids sitcom  Clarissa Explains It All , which and launched Melissa Joan Hart to teen stardom. (This was before  Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. )  There's a post in the ScreenCrush archives  from March of that year, stating that original  Clarissa  creator Mitchell Kriegman and Hart were both in talks for a show about 'Hart's Clarissa Darling as the family's mother.'
