All That Revived at Nickelodeon With SNL's Kenan Thompson

Nickelodeon will revive the hit sketch comedy series All That with veteran cast member and Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson serving as executive producer.

Announced earlier today, the new series will continue with the same format as the original, with young actors starring in comedic skits. Previous cast members will make special appearances throughout the show's inaugural season. Joining Thompson as producers are Kevin Kay (Spongebob SquarePants, Lip Sync BattleLip Sync Battle Shorties) and Jermaine Fowler (Super DonutsSorry to Bother You), with the latter serving as a consulting producer.

Much like the recently revived Double Dare, All That was a staple of classic Nickelodeon, serving as something of a more kid-friendly Saturday Night Live. Created by Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins, the latter of whom is currently president of Nickelodeon, All That ran for ten seasons on Nickelodeon between 1994 and 2005 and launched the careers of such actors as Amanda Bynes and Kel Mitchell.

The series also gave way to the 1997 film Good Burger, which starred Mitchell and Thompson in the lead roles, and The Amanda Show, a spinoff sketch comedy series starring Bynes, which ran for three seasons between 1999 and 2002.

Set to debut in Summer 2019, the new All That series currently has no announced cast or premiere date revealed as yet.
