Only ‘90s kids truly understand the power of the orange soda, thanks to Kenan & Kel and Good Burger. In fact, if you listen closely, somewhere in the back of your head your can still hear Kel Mitchell saying, “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger,” and “Who loves orange soda?”
Whether you first saw Kel and now-SNL-legend Kenan Thompson on Nickelodeon's All That, their self-titled spinoff, or the 1997 Good Burger movie, it’s hard not to love their goofy brand of sketch comedy. And now the great nostalgia wave of the 2010s has yet another surprise for you: plans for a Good Burger sequel have already been put into motion.
Kel Mitchell dropped the tentative sequel news himself during a BuzzFeed interview in which he answered fan questions.
“The conversations have started,” he said when asked about a sequel. “There's something in the water, everything's coming back. It will definitely be awesome and there was a meeting!”
“They're just working everything out contractually, so just keep your ears to the streets,” he added.
This was the only information that Kel was willing to give up, but considering the source, it’s probably okay to start getting just a little bit excited. Plus, the information lines up somewhat with last month’s announcement that All That, which also starred Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server, will bring together its old cast for an upcoming episode of MTV’s Wild ’N Out.
If you can’t wait until that ominous sounding “they” work out those contracts, you can relive the Good Burger days with this 2015 Jimmy Fallon sketch that reunited Kenan and Kel’s characters.
After Fallon brought the two beloved actors together again, they both realized there was still something to their ‘90s show and they had to work together again. “From this, working together and talking about it and seeing reaction from the fans and how they were screaming, and seeing that the magic is still there, we’re just like, 'Yeah, we gotta do some more stuff,' so you’ll definitely see some more stuff,” Mitchell said back in 2015. “You'll definitely see something coming up.”
