Nickelodeon announced that they picked up 20 episodes of Blue's Clues.

Casting for the new host will begin this month, and they're holding an open call in California. They expect production to begin this summer.

“With Blue’s Clues, Nickelodeon launched what became TV’s first generation of interactivity for preschoolers and set the bar for quality, curriculum-driven shows we have made since,” said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. “The new, modern version of Blue’s Clues will capture all the original’s creativity and visual identity for a whole new audience ready for its fun adventures and expertly designed problem-solving curriculum.”

The original Blue's Clues began airing in 1996, and ran for six seasons.
