Cool stuff! Looking forward to seeing how this new take on the old Nickelodeon classic shakes out. October will be here before you know it. In the meantime, we’ll bring you more news and info about the series as it becomes available. I’m guessing we’re all gonna be sad there’s only 3 episodes. Let’s start the “Bring on Season 2!” chant early, shall we?
