Superstation TBS recently launched a Thursday evening reality series entitled “King of the Nerds.”  The basic premise of the show is to pit geeks and dorks against one another to see who will eventually rise to the position of “King of the Nerds.”  The series is hosted by none other than actors Robert “Lewis Skolnick” Carradine, and Curtis “Dudley “Booger” Dawson” Armstrong, who both starred in the original 1984 hit film “Revenge of the Nerds.”  

With reboots and remakes floating around Hollywood like hot air balloons, 2007 saw Fox Atomic trying to recreate the famous original, but after two weeks of shooting the film was shelved due to production difficulties.  Now, Carradine and Armstrong have revealed plans for a “Revenge of the Nerds” sequel, which would reunite all of the original cast members.  Here is what the two “Nerd” alums had to say in this video interview.

Robert Carradine relayed this story, which shows that there is still high interest from fans to see their favorite “Lambda, Lambda, Lambda” alums.

“We had a convention once, in Atlanta. We were all sitting around a dinner table. And when we left the restaurant, the restaurant went nuts. Because the entire group of nerds was leaving. The original nerds, that is. And we all looked at each other and thought, “Maybe it’s time for the next movie. It will be the final frontier. So keep your fingers crossed out there.”

“King of the Nerds” airs at 10/9C on Thursday on TBS.  The show is hosted by Robert Carradine and Curtis Armstrong.
