Childhood nostalgia is about to be in full effect because All That is coming back! The show that was a Nickelodeon staple for over a decade in the 1990s and 2000s is in the works to return to the network with one of its original stars as executive producer. Kenan Thompson, who is now a Saturday Night Live cast member, said it was a “no brainer” for him to sign on to produce the show that gave him his first big break, according to Variety.
In addition to the Thompson, the program launched the careers of Kel Mitchell, Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, and Jamie Lynn Spears.
“We think there’s a great opportunity to find the next pool of stars,” said Brian Robbins, president of Nickelodeon. “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.” He even teased that the revived sketch-comedy program would be “a sort of mash-up of some of the old sketches and a lot of new sketches.”
Can you picture it? Bringing back “Good Burger,” and characters like “Walter the Earboy,” “The Spice Boys,” and “Baggin’ Saggin’ Barry.”
Bringing All That back from out of the vault is currently in line with what the TV station has been doing with restoring popular, older programming to present to a new generation. They’ve tested refreshed versions of Hey Arnold!, Double Dare, and Invader Zim.
