A new season of the classic game show begins this summer.

Nickelodeon has set a premiere date for the return of Double Dare, its wildly popular ‘90s game show, according to a press release. The show, hosted by digital creator and actress Liza Koshy, will air on Monday, June 25 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Marc Summers, the show’s original host, will also join the cast as a commentator.

Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering trivia questions, completing messy physical stunts, and ultimately facing the legendary obstacle course, which includes the human hamster wheel, the classic gigantic mouth, the wringer, and the iconic Double Dare nose.

“I can’t think of many shows like Double Dare that have the ability to bond people together–those who grew up watching the original series can now pass along their love for this game show to today’s kids,” said Summers in a press release. “It’s an honor to be a part of this reboot.”

Nickelodeon’s new iteration of Double Dare will also come to life this summer with live experiences where fans can play Double Dare. These events will take place all summer long at Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America in Minneapolis and at VidCon 2018 in Anaheim, California.

Double Dare originally premiered on October 6, 1986. It ran on Nickelodeon from 1986-1993, making it the network’s longest running game show and one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The show also ran on broadcast television as Family Double Dare in 1988 and as Super Sloppy Double Dare in 1989. At the turn of the century, Nickelodeon revived the show as Double Dare 2000.

“This is a dream that I have been dreaming to live! From watching Double Dareto hosting it,” said Koshy. “I am ready for a summer of slime and nose picking.”
