Double Dare Revival

Nickelodeon Reviving Double Dare for 30th Anniversary at Comic-Con

Nickelodeon is accepting the ultimate dare, bringing one of its most beloved game shows back to celebrate its dirty 30.

A live edition of Double Dare — whose host, Marc Summers, will also return for the festivities — will be held on Friday, July 22 at 9:30 pm PT, as part of San Diego Comic-Con. Several of the Nickelodeon series’ classic challenges, including the iconic Dare Nose, will be incorporated into the competition, which fans can watch live on The Splat’s Facebook page.

In addition to the live event at Comic-Con, TeenNick is also airing episodes of Double Dare, Family Double Dare and Double Dare 2000 for one week, beginning Monday, July 25 at 10 pm. The programming block, appropriately titled “Double Dare Week,” will also be hosted by Summers.

Nickelodeon’s longest-running game show franchise of all time, Double Dare (in all of its many forms) aired from 1986 to 1993 before being briefly revived in 2000.

    Double Dare was one of my favorite Nickelodeon game shows back in the day and the obstacle course is truly a fan favorite. Wonder if they could have reboots of not only Double Dare but Nick Arcade and Finders Keepers.

  2. Apparently it will be at SDCC but its not open to the public and attendees of SDCC can’t go?! WTH is with that? Why bother having it at SDCC at all? I went from being excited to being REALLY mad!

    Double Dare was so popular that it was syndicated and had a Nintendo game… LOL. One of my favorites too.

    Marc Summers should not return back to “The Splat” because he is a racist!
