After Hilary Duff dropped the news that Lizzie McGuire might be staging a comeback, Kenan Thompson is giving millennials another reason to cheer: a Good Burger sequel may be on the horizon! During an appearance on Andy Cohen’s late-night talk show Watch What Happens: Live, a fan asked Thompson whether or not a follow-up to the ’90s classic would ever come to fruition after he and Kel Mitchell reprised their iconic film roles for a Tonight Show skit in 2015. “We’ve been talking about it for a long time and we’ve had meetings about it.
It’s in the higher power’s hands because we both said that we’re down to do it,” Thompson said of the potential sequel.
So there’s a chance we might be seeing Ed (Mitchell) and Dexter (Thompson) together again on the big screen? Count us in!
Thompson and Mitchell made a name for themselves as the iconic comedy duo of the ’90s, first star on the Nickelodeon sketch series All That before headlining their own series, Kenan & Kel, in 1996. After frequent collaborations, the pair drifted apart. They hadn’t spoken for a long time until Nickelodeon super-producer Dan Schneider approached Thompson about reuniting for that Fallon sketch.
“He called me and like a friend of his was working on the Tonight Show and they had that idea to do the reunion. And he reached out to me and then I called Kel and we talked. We played phone tag for like three days but we finally talked and they were like, ‘Yeah, might as well do it.’ It was a nice 40-minute conversation. We hadn’t spoken in a long time. It was nice to reconnect because it was like picking up right from where we left off, we worked so well,” Thompson explained.
The two have kept in frequent contact since then, leaving no excuse for why it’s taking so long to get this Good Burger sequel off the ground. They want it, we want it, everybody wants it! So, for the love of orange soda, someone makes this happen soon. Pretty please?
