Blue's Clues is back! After more than a decade-long hiatus, the beloved preschool series about beloved puppy Blue and her live-action human owner will return to Nick Jr., and some familiar faces will help launch the reboot of the classic children's show.
TV Line reports that the premiere episode of the reboot, Blue's Clues & You!, will bring back original host Steve Burns (Steve) and his predecessor, Donovan Patton (Joe), who played host to Blue during the show's original run from 1996 to 2006. The Blue's Clues veterans will help welcome new host Joshua Dela Cruz ("Josh") to the family.
In addition to the original and new hosts, Blues Clues & You! will welcome back original characters, including Tickety Tock, Slippery Soap, Shovel, Pail, Paprika, Sidetable Drawer, and Mailbox. The original Thinking Chair will also make a return, as will returning vets Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper and their twins, newcomers Sage and Ginger.
Of course, Blue's Clues wouldn't be complete without that all-important Handy Dandy Notebook, but for 2019, the must-have prop has been upgraded to feature a smartphone so Josh can call "cousins" (aka Steve and Joe) for help solving the first puzzle on the new season of Blue's Clues. In addition to the upgraded notebook, there's also a new Handy Dandy Guitar. Does that mean Josh sings?
