It’s slime time! Get ready for some ‘90s nostalgia coming back ‘atcha, because the Nickelodeon game show Double Dare is making its TV comeback. Nickelodeon recently revealed they’re bringing back the beloved show to its network, and it’s set to start this summer.

If you hadn’t noticed, there are a slew of classic ’90s TV shows getting modern-day twists with reboots. Roseanne, Will and Grace, Charmed, Fear Factor, Twin Peaks and Murphy Brown are among the many shows that are part of the revival craze. Even though you might enjoy these reboots, they aren’t exactly great for your little one, which is what makes a Double Dare reboot so awesome.

With 40 new episodes on the schedule, your kids will find their own brand of slime-filled entertainment. Even though Nickelodeon revived the show in 2000 for Double Dare 2000, it’s been more than a few years since the network aired an original episode. That means we’re all—yes, parents and their children—pretty much chomping at the bit for a new chance to watch all-new episodes of such a fun show from our childhood.

So what does Double Dare have in-store for a new generation of viewers? The network hasn’t provided anything definitive. But we’re hoping they’ll have plenty of crazy-messy, outrageous awesomeness. Oh, and bringing back the human hamster wheel wouldn’t hurt, either.
