Well, it looks like the rumors are true! Drake Bell and Josh Peck from Nickelodeon‘s Drake & Josh are officially working together again. Drake spilled the tea about the upcoming project while walking the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 14.
“We’re working on something,” Drake told People. “I’m excited. I think we have a great idea.”
While the series ran from 2004 through 2007 on Nickelodeon, it’s not yet confirmed if the network will be behind this mystery project. However, the 32-year-old actors were recently spotted at a meeting at the Viacom building, the home of Nickelodeon‘s parent company.
“[The show] is going to be way more creative, way cooler than just you know the college years or something like that,” Drake added. “We knew that if we were ever going to come back, it’s got to be something cool. I’m excited to see what the fans think.”
While Drake kept things quiet about what fans can expect from the new show, he did go on to confirm it will “be more adult and really funny.” So yeah, it might not exactly be the Drake & Josh we know from the past.
He explained to E!, “Well, not exactly Drake and Josh, but Josh and I have been talking. He’s come up with some cool ideas. And, yeah, I can’t really go into exactly what we’re doing, but it’s going to be really cool and exciting. I’m really excited to do it.”
Drake went on to say how well he and Josh get along after all these years.
“We’ve known each other for so long, and it really is once in a lifetime in this industry that you get to work with somebody and it clicks like that,” he told People. “He’s just got an amazing comedic wit and incredible timing and he’s really smart and we really get along. So I think that it just kind of all goes together.”
We can’t wait to find out more about the project!
