Catch them late 2016 and 2017

Made-for-TV films based on classic Nickelodeon series Hey Arnold! and Legends of the Hidden Temple will debut in 2017, according to Variety. Both projects will be unveiled tomorrow during an upfronts presentation held by the kids channel's parent company Viacom.

The reboot of '90s game show Legends of the Hidden Temple will transplant the competition's survival elements to reality. The film will depict a trio of siblings conquering a series of obstacles and will include references that Hidden Temple fans will remember, including the Steps of Knowledge and Olmec the talking head.

Legends of the Hidden Temple's TV movie revival will premiere sometime during Q4 2016, according to Variety. It will be followed in 2017 by a two-part film based on the Hey Arnold! cartoon. Nickelodeon announced it would bring back Hey Arnold! for a film project last November.

Nickelodeon is also reuniting several other of its '90s Nicktoons for a crossover film á la Who Framed Roger Rabbit? That movie is currently in development at Paramount Pictures and will be directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). There's no release date yet for the theatrical release, which will reunite characters from shows like Ren and Stimpy and Rugrats.
