Are all hopes for a new one Drake and Jos movie finally lost? Drake Bell has been charged with attempting to endanger children and distribute material that is harmful to children. Bell is known for his role as Drake in the stepbrother duo’s sitcom, which premiered on Nickelodeon in 2004.
Many fans hope for an upcoming Drake and Jos movie revival or maybe even a new series. However, with Drake Bell’s numerous legal issues and past scandals, it’s uncertain whether the project will ever come to light.
Drake Bell is being charged in Ohio in
The thirty-four-year-old actor’s mugshot has a timestamp and was taken on June 3. However, his alleged crime took place almost four years ago. According to court documents, the date of his offense was recorded as December 1, 2017 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. It was also on this day that the Los Angeles native tweeted that he would be performing a concert in Cleveland, Ohio.
On Thursday, Drake Bell pleaded not guilty to the charges and declined to read the charges. A personal bond of $2,500 was provided, which he posted that same day. The terms of his commitment were to cut off contact with the victim and submit a DNA sample.
Drake Bell’s first preliminary examination will take place on June 23. Bell’s attorney, Ian Friedman, declined to comment on the charges, and it’s still unclear what Bell did to be charged with these particular charges.
Drake Bell’s Past Accusations Drake
It was only last August that the singer and actor fell into a scandal. Bell faced allegations of abuse by his ex-girlfriend who released an all-encompassing TikTok. In the video posted on August 12, Melissa Lingafelt claimed that Drake Bell verbally and physically abused her during their two-year relationship when she was 16 years old.
Lingafelt, who is now thirty-one, stated: “This is my truth. I hope this message reaches young girls and that no one has to go through what I did.” The TikTok video has been viewed more than 4.3 million times.
Drake Bell replied, “Unfortunately, when our relationship ended — over a decade ago — we both called each other horrible names, as often happens when couples break up. But that’s it,” he said. “Obviously, Melissa was still close enough to me last year that she felt comfortable asking me to offer her financial support during a difficult time (which I did).”
What does this mean for a possible Drake and Jos Restart?
If the chance of a Drake and Jos film were already slim, then it got even slimmer. Fans have been waiting for news about a possible movie or even a reboot series for years; however, no concrete news about an official film has been announced.
Drake Bell has previously suggested the iconic stepbrother combo would hit the big screen. Bell stated that the new Drake and Jos movie or series “will be much more creative, much cooler than just, you know, college days or something like that,” Bell continued. “We knew that if we were ever to come back, it had to be something cool. I’m curious what the fans think.”
Further details about the possible revival have not yet been disclosed. If Drake Bell can’t stay out of trouble, we can certainly say goodbye to the unlikely remake.
The Drake and Jos reunion you probably missed
In 2016, the Drake and Jos reunion happened without most fans knowing. Drake Bell guest-starred on Josh Peck’s show grandfather which also featured John Stamos. Peck plays an app developer trying to make it big and meets Bell, a wealthy Silicon Valley genius.
Although the two don’t play their original Drake and Jos roles, the episode is filled with fun references to the Nickelodeon sitcom. Bell’s character shows how Peck resembles his stepbrother, who is in fact in prison for stalking Oprah Winfrey. each
Since the show grandfather only lasted one season and went relatively under the radar, most people never realized the two were reunited! If all goes well for Drake Bell, we might see the stepbrothers together again – perhaps with their borderline psychotic sister Megan, played by Miranda Cosgrove.
