Kenan Thompson revealed that the long-awaited sequel to the hit ’90s film, Good Burger, is definitely going to happen!
“We’re getting really close on Good Burger 2,” the 44-year-old comedian shared with ET. “It’s gonna happen, and I think it’s gonna happen soon. We’re gonna figure out when the pocket of time will be to shoot it, but it’s gonna happen.”
Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson have confirmed that the long-awaited Good Burger sequel is finally happening.
He teased, “It’s closer than it’s ever been. So, I don’t think anything is gonna derail it. We had a reading, like a little private thing just to hear the script that we’ve been working on, out loud—just with a couple friends and a couple people from Paramount and Nickelodeon, and it was so funny.”
In an Instagram post shared on Monday (Oct. 24), Mitchell, also 44, shared a video of the script with his song, “Blessed Mode” playing in the background. “Now we’re cooking! [sic] table read went really good! Good vibes! Good Laughs, Good Burgers!,” he wrote.
“Kel [Mitchell] has not missed a step,” Kenan said of his co-star. “It’s like old slippers, and that character is just ripe for jokes. We read like, over 100 pages and laughed the whole time. It was so much fun.”
“It’s on and crackin…that’s all I can say,” he concluded.
The longtime friends and collaborators had their own Good Burger reunion when Thompson hosted the 2022 Emmy Awards. During one of the interludes, he made his way to the bar and was surprised to see Mitchell as he requested to have a “good burger.” The two men jumped around, embracing, and laughing with one another.
