Many fans have been hoping for an upcoming Drake and Josh movie revival or perhaps even a new series. However, with Drake Bell’s numerous legal issues and previous scandals, it’s uncertain if the project will ever come to light.
Back in 2016, the Drake and Josh reunion happened without most fans even knowing. Drake Bell was a guest star in Josh Peck’s show Grandfathered which also featured John Stamos. Peck plays an app developer trying to make it big who meets Bell, a wealthy Silicon Valley genius.
Although the two aren’t playing their original Drake and Josh roles, the episode is filled with fun references to the Nickelodeon sitcom. Bell’s character points out how Peck resembles his stepbrother – who’s actually in jail for stalking Oprah Winfrey. Every Drake and Josh fan understands the reference to Josh’s bizarre obsession with Winfrey. The two even do their famous “hug me brotha!” line in the episode’s ending.

Since the show Grandfathered only lasted one season and went relatively under the radar, most people never realized that the two reunited! If all goes well for Drake Bell, perhaps we’ll get to see the stepbrothers together once again – perhaps, with their borderline psychotic sister Megan, played by Miranda Cosgrove.
