It was way back in March when it was announced that Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell would be returning for a sequel to 1997’s Good Burger, and while we don’t have any official promo images for the film yet, we have our first look at the dup returning as Ed and Dexter.
Check this out:
Here’s the synopsis for the sequel (as per Variety):
“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 movie is no Clerks, but it was a huge hit for Nickelodeon, spinning off from the original All That skit featuring Mitchell. Thompson wasn’t really in the Good Burger sketches, but he was brought to co-lead the film since he starred with Mitchell on their own hit show Kenan and Kel.
Besides the original duo, it would be great if we got to see some other returning cast members alongside new Good Burger workers. Some fans probably didn’t realize that the crazy girl that talks to Ed in the psych ward was actually Linda Cardellini (Hawkeye, Scooby-Doo, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3).
No release date has been set for Good Burger 2, but with production currently ongoing, we could see a release around mid-2024.
