Kenan Thompson is Bringing ‘All That’ Back to Nickelodeon

It's like SNL but for teens.

Nickelodeon

Good news for ’90s kids everywhere: Nickelodeon just announced that they’re reviving the popular sketch comedy show All That. And the executive producer for the reboot is none other than Saturday Night Live favorite (and former All That star) Kenan Thompson.

“It means everything to me,” Thompson, whose acting career took off following his role in the 1994 series, told Variety. “It was my first job that I ever had. It gave me an opportunity.”

While the revival will feature a brand-new cast, Variety reports that some of the show’s original stars (which included Nick Cannon, Jamie Lynn Spears, and Amanda Bynes) may make a few guest appearances throughout the season.

According to Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins, who was an executive producer of the original series, the All That reboot will be “a sort of mash-up of some of the old sketches and a lot of new sketches.”

He explained to Variety, “We want to bring the show back in a real fun way… 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.”

There’s no official release date for the series but Robbins hinted that it will be sometime in the summer of 2019.

And while Thompson is still on SNL, Nickelodeon’s announcement furthers the rumor that this could be Thompson’s last season on the show, ending his streak as the longest-running cast member. Along with producing All That, the actor and comedian recently received a pilot order from NBC for his own series, Saving Kenan.
