While the powers that be are still discussing the possibility of the Olsen twins returning to the recently confirmed Full House revival show, Fuller House, there is great news for all of us mad Olsen twins fans out there (and I know there are a lot of you!) - the cable network Nickelodeon announced on Thursday that it has acquired the rights to many of the Olsen twins' '90s and early '00s TV series and movies!
Throughout the 1990s and into the mid-2000s there was absolutely no doubt that the Olsen twins reigned supreme over all other child stars with their huge empire of clothing brands, fragrances, movies and TV shows, and now we get to relive it all again!
The Olsen twins goodness will start with their 26-episode TV series So Little Time, airing on weeknights from April 27th onwards. Other Olsen twins TV series acquired by the cable network include The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley, You’re Invited to Mary-Kate & Ashley’s and Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action!
As for the TV movies that will soon be hitting screens, Nickelodeon has received: Mary-Kate & Ashley’s Fashion Forward, Our Lips Are Sealed, Winning London, Holiday in the Sun, When in Rome, Getting There: Sweet 16 and Licensed to Drive and The Challenge. Unfortunately, there's no sign of It Takes Two or Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, but hey, we can't have it all. There were also two music specials picked up titled Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: Our Music Video and Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen: Our First Video. Check out one of the Olsen twins video clips below, it's pretty cute stuff:
Speaking via a press release about the new move for the Olsen library, Mary-Kate Olsen said:
"Nickelodeon has been at the forefront of kids entertainment for decades. We believe this is the perfect home for our library."
It sure is! Now I'm off to eagerly await April 27th so I can re-live the early 2000s with So Little Time!
