Nickelodeon to revive 'All That' with Kenan Thompson as executive producer

The teenage version of "SNL" was big in the '90s

Nickelodeon announced on Thursday it will reboot its hit sketch-comedy TV show from the 90s and early 2000s, "All That." 

The show, which was basically a teen version of "Saturday Night Live," complete with recurring characters and sketches, will return with an all-new cast. SNL's Kenan Thompson, who got his start on "All That" when the show launched in 1994, will return to executive produce.

Former cast members are expected to make cameos throughout the series. The original "All That" featured other stars like Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon and Jamie Spears. 


In his announcement, Variety reported that President of Nickelodeon Brian Robbins cited popular sketches from the show, like "Good Burger," which eventually became a successful spinoff movie featuring Thompson and Kel Mitchell. 

Thompson told Variety that when Robbins pitched the idea to him, it was a "no-brainer."
