While 90s nostalgia is still high, we're starting to see a love reemerge for all things Aughts. And this latest reunion news will hit hard and fast for anyone in their late teens or early twenties who grew up watching Drake & Josh on Nickelodeon. The duo are back! Only, they're not getting a new special or a TV reboot.
Instead, stars Drake Bell and Josh Peck are coming back together for an episode of Grandfathered. The John Stamos sitcom co-stars Peck. And soon, he will once again be teaming up with Bell, who will serve as a guest star. The episode won't air until spring 2016.
In this episode, Gerald, who is played by Josh Peck, and Vanessa, played by Christina Milian have an app idea that they are eager to pitch. Drake Bell will step in as the bombastic tech investor who may be interested in their idea. Of course, things aren't going to go as planned. But it's sure to be hilarious.
Drake Bell currently stars as the voice of Peter Parker on Ultimate Spider-Man. He is also a singer-songwriter. Together with Josh Peck, the pair launched their /fuller-house-netflix-series-tanner-home/teen sitcom Drake & Josh on Nickelodeon in 2004. It ran for 4 seasons, coming to an end in 2007. Before that, the pair first collaborated on a variety of sketches for the The Amanda Show between 1999 and 2002. They also headlined the 2008 Nick original movie Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh.
In Grandfathered, John Stamos plays a version of himself: a charismatic, longtime bachelor named Jimmy who finds his life turned upside down when he learns that not only is he the father of a grown man named Gerald, but also a grandfather to Gerald's baby daughter. This sophisticated coming-of-age comedy proves that not everyone grows up at exactly the same time as Jimmy must learn to adapt to the sudden changes in his life, connect with his newfound family, and perhaps reconnect with Gerald's mother. Other Grandfathered Season 1 guest stars have included Dr. Phil and former Full House castmates Bob Saget and Dave Coulier. That particular trio will also be back together for Fuller House, a reunion series that debuts on Netflix in 2016.
