Classic kids game show Double Dare is returning to Nickelodeon. The network has ordered 40 new episodes for a new generation of trivia, stunts, wringers, hamster wheels and nose picking. Premiere is slated for this summer.
Nick says the new version will feature the gameplay and challenges its original millennial audiences remember from the show, as well as appearances from blasts from the past and stars from today. You can watch a promo below.
Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy, physical stunts and ultimately facing the infamous obstacle course–the human hamster wheel; the classic gigantic mouth; the wringer; and the iconic Double Dare nose.
This is the latest classic franchise brought back by Viacom networks, joining MTV’s TRL and the Jersey Shore reboots.
Double Dare premiered on Oct. 6, 1986, on Nickelodeon, and ran from 1986-1993, making it the network’s longest running game show. Shortly after its debut, Double Dare became one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The series went into syndication in 1988, and was later revamped as Super Sloppy Double Dare in 1989. The show also ran on broadcast television as Family Double Dare in 1988, followed by new versions on Nick, including Double Dare 2000.
