Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell confirmed on Friday that they will star in a sequel to the beloved 90’s movie “Good Burger.”

Thompson and Mitchell appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to discuss the news. The film will begin production in May.

“It’s such a blessing, man,” Thompson said to Fallon. “It’s unbelievable.”

The 1997 movie “Good Burger”, which was based off of a comedy sketch from Nickelodeon’s “All That,” starred Thompson and Mitchell as Dexter and Ed.

“Dexter Reed (Thompson) is down on his luck after another one of his inventions fails. Ed (Mitchell) 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,” the sequel’s official logline says.

The movie is set to premiere on the streaming service Paramount+ later this year.

“I can’t believe it’s been a little over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger!” Thompson said in a statement. “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!
