Now, a brand new Blues Clues movie is in the works starring all three actors. Keep reading to learn more.

Burns was the subject of a recent viral video

Burns made waves when he stepped back into character as “Steve” for a Sept. 7, 2021 video that was shared by Nick Jr.’s social media pages in honor of the 25th anniversary of the show. In the video, Steve explained to his Blue’s Clues viewers that, although his departure was abrupt, he’s never forgotten his friends and that he’s “proud” of them and the time that they had together. 

The video went viral, with thousands of fans of the show expressing their love and appreciation for Burns and the show that had helped to shape their childhoods. “Was not expecting to open Twitter and hear some of the stuff I’ve needed to hear for years now from Steve from Blue’s Clues but here I am and I’m crying,” one fan on Twitter wrote.

With Burns now firmly back in the spotlight, fans can surely expect to hear more from the beloved host in the months to come — and the good news is they won’t have to wait too much longer to watch him reprise his role as Steve from Blues Clues.
