Nickelodeon is reviving its comedy show All That, which originally aired in the 1990s and 2000s. The sketch focused on Kel Mitchell as a dimwitted employee at a fast food joint called Good Burger.

The mini-series will follow new members of the Midnight Society as they share scary stories around the campfire. "It gave me an opportunity", Thompson shared with Variety.

Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins was a co-creator and an executive producer of the original series, which featured a who's who of young stars like Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon and Jamie Spears.

Kenan Thompson, who went from the minor leagues of Nickelodeon to the major leagues of NBC, will be the show's executive producer, Variety reported. The latter will first return in the form of a TV movie (premiering Sunday, Oct. 20).

Kenan, upon being asked by Robbins to helm the All That revival, couldn't be more excited.

Curry was second with 24 and the Sacramento Kings' Buddy Hield rounded out the top three with 19 points. Diallo, who had a Superman shirt under his jersey, leaped over the 7-foot-1 center for the dunk.

Brian Robbins, president of Nickelodeon, believes this is the flawless time to find a new group of talented stars.

The reboot will see both original cast members and cast members from throughout the years making a return to introduce the new cast of All That. We're not sure yet if Thompson will also star on the show in some capacity, but the All That and Saturday Night Live veteran should act as a great mentor for up-and-coming comedians, even if he's putting his SNL duties first. Back in 2015, they did a Good Burger sketch on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Thompson did not hesitate to jump on board when Robbins asked him.

Thompson, speaking to Variety, is still just as much in love with the show as we are. "It means everything to me". He specified this particular iteration would be a "mash-up" of old and new sketches.

Nickelodeon announced its plans to bring back the two shows, along with a new version of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader hosted by John Cena, and a SpongeBob spinoff.
