Kenan Thompson Will Executive Produce Nickelodeon's 'All That' Reboot
Right in the nostalgia.
Nickelodeon's All That, the beloved '90s sketch-comedy show led by tweens and teens, will be getting a Generation Z reboot. Original cast member and current Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson will be the executive producer of the remake.
According to Variety, auditions will be held to find the perfect cast members, and Nickelodeon is expecting former cast members to make appearances on the show.
"It means everything to me,” Thompson, who is the longest-running SNL cast member, told Variety. “It was my first job that I ever had. It gave me an opportunity.” The show, which originally premiered in 1994, was rebooted in the early 2000s with a whole new crop of young comedians before being cancelled after its 10th season.
The President of Nickelodeon, Brian Robbins, details with the publication that All That "stayed in the zeitgeist for many years." The show spawned an original movie, Good Burger, which is based on the popular sketch featuring Kel Mitchell. Kenan & Kel had their own spinoff series, and Amanda Bynes also had her own show after her stint on All That, aptly-titled The Amanda Show.
“We think there’s a great opportunity to find the next pool of stars,” said Robbins, a co-creator and executive producer of the original series. “We want to bring the show back in a real fun way. This summer, we are going to bring back a lot of the original cast and the cast through the years, and let them introduce the new cast of ‘All That’ to the world.”
