The dream of the 1990s is alive and well on Nickelodeon, where Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell set to reunite for the revival of Double Dare.
The comedic duo will go head to head in an upcoming episode of the relaunched game show, to air later this summer. The new Double Dare premiered Monday, with new host Liza Koshy joined by Marc Summers, who returned to provide color commentary. Like its predecessor, the series has teams compete through answering trivia questions and completing physical challenges, culminating in a race through an elaborate obstacle course for the grand prize.
"I am so excited to be playing on Double Dare and for whole new generation of kids to experience this iconic game show," Mitchell told Entertainment Weekly. "This episode will be double special because Kenan and I will be playing against each other and we are both huge fans of Double Dare! I can’t wait to see the super talented Liza Koshy rock it as the new host!"
Thompson and Mitchell had first appeared together on Nickelodeon's popular sketch series All That from 1994 to 1998. The pair became an instant hit with television audiences with skits like "Good Burger," which inspired a 1997 film of the same name. Thompson and Mitchell later received their own Nickelodeon sitcom, the appropriately titled Kenan & Kel, which ran for four seasons, from 1996 to 2000, ending with a TV movie.
