There is Going to be a "Good Burger," Sequel!

I've been a fan of Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell since back in the day when they were on, "All That," their own television show, and then growing up to do a wide range of projects (Kenan is basically the bedrock of, "Saturday Night Live," right now). In 1997, they did the " Good Burger" movie, which grew out of an, "All That " skit and was a solidly entertaining flick. I was intrigued to hear that Kenan and Kel are going to be coming back for, "Good Burger 2," on Paramount+. Now, this could go horribly wrong as we've had nostalgia-filled sequels that couldn't quite live-up to the original flick. 

Thad said, the CEO of Paramount+ is actually the director of the first movie, Brian Robbins, so I'd think the first movie holds a special place in his heart too and he'd only get the top creative team to work on a sequel. I mean, Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert, who co-wrote the original film are back writing this one, so that's a good sign. Kenan and Kel have been friends, on the rocks, and seem to be in a good place again, thankfully. Phil Traill will be directing the sequel and it is due to land on Paramount+ sometime later this year. I am hopeful it will be a delectable time.
