The film “Good Burger 2” is now officially approved! The original “Good Burger” performers Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell will return for the sequel, which Nickelodeon Studios and Paramount+ announced on Saturday. According to Paramount+, the focus of “Good Burger 2” is Dexter Reed, played by Thompson, who is “down on his luck after another one of his inventions fails.”
A Surprising Announcement
A sequel to the 1997 movie Good Burger, starring Keenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, has finally been approved by Paramount+ after months of rumors and fans’ hopes. Mitchell eagerly yelled out the catchphrase “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger” before breaking the news during Friday’s broadcast of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Both Thompson and Mitchell broke the news.
A Bit of Expectation
Filming on the project will start in May, with intentions to premiere it on their Paramount+ streaming service at some point in 2023, according to a Variety story. The idea for Good Burger first appeared in the Nickelodeon sketch series All That, in which Mitchell played Ed, a worker at the fast-food establishment known simply as Good Burger. The sketch was so well-liked that it was adapted into a movie in 1997, starring Thompson and Mitchell as employees of the fast food company who become entangled in a massive conspiracy. Despite the movie’s modest box office success, it became a cult favorite.
While the Good Burger 2 storyline is still unknown, Mitchell did have some suggestions for it last year. In an interview with ComingSoon, Mitchell made a joke about the potential of Ed taking over Good Burger right away and hiring “a whole new generation” of staff members. This could be a great angle comedy-wise, but we still have so much to think of since times have changed and comedy has taken a turn for the past year. Hopefully, this movie will come out as good as its announcement!
