Nickelodeon Announces They’re Bringing Back ‘All That’ With Kenan Thompson As The Lead Producer

With many people in society trying to bring back the iconic ’90s, kids and teens who grew up during the time will be glad to hear that an epic TV show from their childhood is making a major comeback. According to Variety, the sketch comedy show All That is being brought back to Nickelodeon as part of a new venture. The company announced the big news on Twitter by sharing the link to the Variety article.

According to the network, Kenan Thompson—who was part of the original cast—will be the executive producer of the revamp. Additionally, it makes perfect sense as the show was a “kid’s version” of Saturday Night Live, where Thompson has been an active cast member for several years.

Not only did All That launch a career for Thompson, but it also helped jumpstart the career of many other cast members—such as Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon, who both ended up with spin-off shows on the network. Additionally, Thompson himself landed a spin-off with co-star Kel Mitchell. In several interviews, Thompson said he “owed his entire career to All That.”

Brian Robbins, President of Nickelodeon, told Variety:

“We think there’s a great opportunity to find the next pool of stars. We want to bring the show back in a real fun way. This summer, 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.” He suggested the program would be “a sort of mash-up of some of the old sketches and a lot of new sketches.”

After the news hit social media, people online were celebrating the return of a classic.
