Blue's Clues & You! is an upcoming reboot of the Blue's Clues series. It is set to premiere on Nickelodeon on November 11, 2019. It is the third series in the franchise, after the original TV show and Blue's Room.
It was first announced by Nickelodeon at its upfront presentation on March 6, 2018. According to Variety, twenty episodes have been ordered and filming began during summer 2018.
The reboot features a new host, Josh, who is played by Joshua Dela Cruz.
Nickelodeon held an open casting call for a potential host on April 14, 2018. The auditions were held at their studio in Burbank, California. The network sought applicants 18 years or older of all ethnicities.
Like the original show, there will be a live-action host in an animated world. The reboot will feature all-new production design and animation. The visual style will remain true to the original, but the characters will be rendered in CGI, as depicted in a teaser image.
The designs of the main animated characters were updated for the reboot. Most notably, Cinnamon is taller and now wears a baseball cap. Paprika is also taller and carries a cell phone with her. Some minor changes were also made, like giving the Shaker family details on their seasoning color, giving Mailbox a metallic shine, and giving Sidetable a wooden texture.
Magenta will also appear in the reboot, though she will be shown without glasses like she originally did. Other characters may possibly reappear in the reboot. One of the chicks was shown in the living room picture in a production screenshot, and Periwinkle's house can be seen in the background of the theme song. Original hosts Steve and Joe will also make recurring appearances.
