Clarissa Explains It All aired for five seasons on Nickelodeon. The series, which starred Melissa Joan Hart in the title role, was cancelled by the network, and it aired its final episode in 1994. Since then, the actress has starred in movies and she had a run with Melissa & Joey on ABC Family. That series was cancelled by the network during its fourth season.
A new book has been released that shows what life would be life for Clarissa as an adult. The book titled Things I Can’t Explain focuses on Clarissa as a 20-something living in New York City, according to The Huffington Post.
The book comes from the man behind the series, Mitchell Kriegman, and his book shows a very different Clarissa Darling. She had some bad luck after the cameras stopped rolling at the end of the series.
The book opens with her unemployed and single. She had a job with a newspaper, but it folder. She is struggling to be a “real journalist” in the age of the Internet. The book is a bit more adult than the teen sitcom. There are some sexual situations, including a scene with her best friend from next door Sam. The book is definitely not Nickelodeon friendly.
