Nickelodeon Orders 'School of Rock' Television Show for 13 Episodes!

JJJ could not be more excited about this news – the beloved movie School of Rock will be the basis of a brand new television series on Nickelodeon!

The show will follow the same premise of the movie: “The adventures and misadventures of Dewey Finn (Black‘s role), a down-on-his-luck rocker who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school as he teaches his eccentric, unconventional and overachieving students to play and love rock ‘n’ roll,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

We sure hope that we will get some appearances from the movie’s stars Jack Black and Miranda Cosgrove at some point in the series!

“With Dewey’s outrageous personality and rock star sensibilities taking center stage, School of Rock will be an irresistibly fun show for the whole family,” Paramount TV president Amy Powell said.

ARE YOU EXCITED for the School of Rock television series?

    Sounds awesome. The only thing that will make it even more awesome is if Miranda Cosgrove starred in it too! Lets just hope she does :)

    I am unsure, it depends on if it is taking place at the same time as the movie did (meaning it would most likely be recast with the exception of Black) or if it’s like a “sequel” where he comes back to teach a High School class & it *happens* to be the same kids as before (which is a bit of a stretch but we’ll see) this definitely has potential to be a smash hit though if done correctly, although how exactly they would do it right from week to week is hard to say.
