A long time coming! Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell are reprising their roles as Dexter Reed and Ed, respectively, in Good Burger 2 — more than 20 years after the original premiered.
The longtime friends first met on Nickelodeon’s All That in the early ‘90s. Their success on the sketch comedy series led to their spinoff series, Kenan & Kel, which ran from 1996 to 2000.
Thompson and Mitchell’s fame grew even more in 1997 when they costarred in Good Burger. The comedy was based off one of their All That sketches in which they played fast-food workers trying to save the establishment from going under.
In September 2015, the twosome gave fans a glimpse at what a sequel would be like while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Mitchell reprised his role as Good Burger manager Ed while host Jimmy Fallon played his staff member during a bit on the talk show. Three months later, Michell once again appeared on the Tonight Show with Thompson to officially announce Good Burger 2.
A few days later, the twosome stopped by ’90s Con and shared even more details about the upcoming film. “People have been waiting. We’ve been waiting. We want to get it done and we want to get it out so people can enjoy it,” Thompson told the crowd. “Maybe do part 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, Fast and Furious style. Why not? I’m excited.”
