Drake & Josh was a staple of many a childhood, and now it’s been 11 years since the show was last on our screens, surely that means it’s time for a reboot? It’s 2018, after all.
Well, star Drake Bell is “absolutely” behind revisiting our favourite stepbrothers, and revealed that co-star Josh Peck has already been floating around some ideas too.
“I think any chance for Josh and I have to get back together would be awesome,” he exclusively told Digital Spy. “I think the fans would love it. And I would love to see us do something again together. Josh is so great, we have such great chemistry.
“It’s kind of a once in a lifetime thing in Hollywood to find that. I’ve made multiple films with the same person and still not had that kind of chemistry as I do with Josh. It’s not just, ‘Oh you’ve worked together for so long and it just happens’.”
He also explained that Josh has come up with some “really, really clever ideas” for a Drake & Josh reboot, teasing: “They’re so good. I mean I can’t say any of them because if they actually happen I want them to be a surprise. But Josh has come up with some really great ideas.
“If we could find it in our schedules, because I’m always touring and he’s always doing his thing. If we can find the time in our schedule and the stars align, I think we have the greatest… I think we have a really clever and great idea to come back.”
Drake further suggested of what it could entail: “If Josh and I got back together, I don’t think we would want to continue the same storyline. I think we would want to do something outside of the box.
“Josh is so creative and I just know that if he and I put our heads together we’re not gonna want to do ‘Drake and Josh Go To College’. It’s going to be something much more creative and interesting than just, ‘Oh, what happened to Drake and Josh when they grew up?’ It’s got to be more interesting than that.”
The 32-year-old also theorised where Drake Parker and Josh Nichols would be in 2018, musing: “I think Drake Parker is still living at home, and Josh probably went off and got a great job and is probably managing some artist.
“Or, I dunno, Drake went and got famous and huge, or maybe he still is and did get famous and became a rock star but he still is living at home. I have a feeling he still lives with his mom and dad.”
