Good Burger 2 (2023)

A ‘Good Burger Sequel Is ‘Gonna Happen’ Says Kenan Thompson

Matt Singer

Published: October 27, 2022Paramount

Good Burger may soon be the home of the Good Burger again really soon.

It sounds like a pipe dream, or maybe an elaborate prank, but apparently a sequel to the 1997 cult kids comedy Good Burger, based on the series of sketches from television and starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, is really happening. Thompson himself says that the script for the movie is written and that the sequel is “gonna happen,” some 25 years after the original hit theaters.

As he explained to Entertainment Tonight...
It's closer than it's ever been. So, I don't think anything is gonna derail it ... We had a reading, like a little private thing just to hear the script that we've been working on, out loud -- just with a couple friends and a couple people from Paramount and Nickelodeon, and it was so funny.
Thompson and Mitchell recently had a Good Burger reunion during the Emmy Awards, which Thompson hosted.

The pair had previously reunited for a Good Burger sketch on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in 2015. They first revealed discussions for a potential Good Burger film sequel in 2018. The Good Burger concept originated on the Nickelodeon sketch series All That in the ’90s. (That series has also been revived in recent years by Nickelodeon, with both Thompson and Mitchell serving as executive producers and appearing as guest stars.)

Mitchell and Thompson also posted a video of the script on Instagram this week, indicating that the thing really does exist, and it is getting close to happening.

Good Burger 2 doesn’t have an official release date yet, but Thompson sure seems convinced the film is happening.

Kinda cool news. I liked Kenan and Kel a lot back in the day (both their personalities and the show they did together). Glad that they’re finally doing more together again. I will say I tried to watch Good Burger a couple years ago and found it hard to watch, but I’d probably watch a sequel for nostalgia sake.

I've heard they're waiting for an 8k format because the classic deserves no less than that.

“Good Burger 2” has officially been greenlit at Paramount+, with original stars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell set to return.

The news was revealed on Friday’s episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” The sequel to the beloved Nickelodeon film will begin production in May with plans to debut it on Paramount+ later in 2023.

“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! Love performing with my brother Kel and can’t wait to show the fans what these characters have been up to since we last saw them.”

“Good Burger” originated as a sketch on the Nickelodeon series “All That” in which Mitchell starred as Ed. It was then spun off into the 1997 film. It proved to be a box office success, grossing just under $24 million against a reported budget of $8 million. It has gone on to achieve cult status, with Mitchell and Thompson reuniting for a “Good Burger” sketch on “The Tonight Show” in 2015 and subsequently stating over the years they were open to a new iteration of the film. Mitchell also appeared as Ed in the “All That” revival series in 2019.

Per the official logline of the film, “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.”

Said Mitchell, “Ed is one of those timeless characters that has brought so much joy and laughter to fans, and it’s such a beautiful blessing to still be doing it after all these years. It’s super awesome to come back and continue the stories of Dex, Ed and Good Burger for both the people who grew up watching and their kids.”

Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert, who co-wrote the original film and worked on “All That”, serve as writers and executive producers on the sequel. James III is also a writer on the film. Phil Traill will direct. Nickelodeon Studios will produce. Production of the movie for Nickelodeon Studios is overseen by Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, co-heads of Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Live-Action. Brittany Cope serves as Nickelodeon’s executive in charge of production.

“We’re thrilled to take audiences’ orders for more laughter and adventures with the ‘Good Burger’ crew,” said Tanya Giles, chief programming officer of Paramount Streaming. “‘Good Burger 2’ will be a great addition to our 2023 programming slate and is sure to serve up everything ‘All That’ fans and new viewers alike will enjoy.”

Thompson is repped by UTA and NCredible Entertainment. Mitchell is repped by UTA and Levity Live.

“’Good Burger’ is such a beloved movie that fans have cherished for years,” Phelan and Olin said. “Packed with comedy, cameos and plenty of Easter eggs from the original, ‘Good Burger 2’ will bring the nostalgia fans and a new generation of viewers together for another wild, hilarious ‘Good Burger’ adventure.”

This marks the latest Nickelodeon property to get revived at Paramount+. The streamer also has the “iCarly” revival series, which has been renewed for a third season, as well as an updated version of “Rugrats” among others.

Like every GOOD BURGER reference on this forum, this has to be a joke.

I’m happy to see it moving forward. Just glad to get Kenan and Kel together in a new project. Wondering how good it’ll actually be but I’m definitely interested in watching it.

Did we ever get that Criterion Edition DVD of the first movie? If so, any plans to remaster it for a 4K UHD BD release?
