‘Good Burger’ Sequel confirned with Kenan and Kel On Board

Kenan & Kel to return in Good Burger 2

Longtime pals and actors Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell have announced that they’ll be reuniting once more for more Good Burger.

The upcoming movie will follow Dexter Reed (Thompson) and original cashier Ed as they reunite in the present day at the fast food restaurant Good Burger, along with a new group of employees.

In the sequel, Dexter is down on his luck after another one of his inventions fails. Ed welcomes Dex back to Good Burger with open arms and gives him his old job back. With a new crew working at Good Burger, Dex devises a plan to get back on his feet but unfortunately puts the fate of Good Burger at risk once again.

“I can’t believe it’s been a little over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger!” Kenan shared. “Being a part of something so many generations of people have come to love has made me so proud and now to be back where it all began working on the sequel is surreal! Love performing with my brother Kel and can’t wait to show the fans what these characters have been up to since we last saw them.”

Kel added, “Ed is one of those timeless characters that has brought so much joy and laughter to fans, and it’s such a beautiful blessing to still be doing it after all these years. It’s super awesome to come back and continue the stories of Dex, Ed and Good Burger for both the people who grew up watching and their kids.”

Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert, who wrote and produced the original movie, on the Kenan & Kel series and on All That, are returning to write Good Burger 2, and executive produce. Phil Traill is directing.

“Good Burger 2” has officially been greenlit at Paramount+, with original stars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell set to return.

If you didn’t know, Good Burger was a 90s film based off of a sketch with Kenan and Kel on the Nickelodeon sketch series All That.

“Good Burger” originated as a sketch on the Nickelodeon series “All That” in which Mitchell starred as Ed. It was then spun off into the 1997 film. It proved to be a box office success, grossing just under $24 million against a reported budget of $8 million. It has gone on to achieve cult status, with Mitchell and Thompson reuniting for a “Good Burger” sketch on “The Tonight Show” in 2015 and subsequently stating over the years they were open to a new iteration of the film. Mitchell also appeared as Ed in the “All That” revival series in 2019.

Production on Good Burger 2 is slated to begin in May and premiere later this year on Paramount+.
