When we got word that an All That reboot is on the way, our ‘90s love could seriously not be contained. And now, while we’re still giddy over the Backstreet Boys nostalgia-satisfying Miss USA performance, word is buzzing that The Amanda Show is coming back to the small screen. And yes, this is very exciting throwback programming.
The All That spinoff show that saw Amanda Bynes transform from another adorable kid actor to a full-on performing force originally had fans laughing from 1999-2002. The skits saw the young star taking on endless roles like Judge Trudy (ya know, like Judge Judy) and Penelope Taynt (a.k.a. Amanda’s #1 Fan).
Although this won’t be a reboot like the new All That, you’ll be able to giggle along with the original episodes beginning June 10th on The Splat, which airs on TeenNick. When asked how fans might react to the return of one of their all-time fave throwback shows, exec Keith Dawkins put it mildly, saying, “I’m hoping that people will lose their minds.” That’s a safe bet.
Amanda herself isn’t expected to make a present-day appearance on the show, having announced her retirement from acting in 2012 after a series of personal and legal struggles. Currently studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with the hopes of launching a career in fashion design, we hope Amanda is able to sit back and enjoy these reruns as much as fans surely will.
