“All That” is Back!
Here we go again, another show from the 90’s is being revived. After reboots for “Boy meets girl,” “Full House,” “Roseanne” and others have found success, Nickelodeon announces a return of “All That.” Yes, THAT show, the show we all clamored for as kids. We aren’t sure who’ll be happier about this, parents or kids, but both should be thoroughly entertained. Parents who enjoyed “All That” back in the day can now share their favorite childhood show with their kids. The Kenan Thompson ‘All That’ reboot should be, well, ALL THAT (cheesy, but we had to do it).
Kenan Thompson will Executive Produce
The network says the popular ’90s sketch-comedy series return with an all-new cast. But don’t worry, they aren’t being too screwy with the formula, Kenan Thompson will be on-board. If you remember, he began his career on the original “All That.” Kenan will serve as the show’s executive producer.
“It means everything to me,” Thompson told Variety when he got the call from Nickelodeon president, Brian Robbins. “It was my first job that I ever had, it gave me an opportunity.” An opportunity, is quite the understatement mister Thompson. Kenan’s role on the original “All That” led to a gig on a small show called SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. Of which Kenan appeared for SIXTEEN fricking years, making it the longest run for an SNL actor.
Kenan Thompson is making moves out here!
Wait, there’s more! Apparently Kenan made a great impression during his time at SNL. According to deadline.com, Lorne Micheals and fellow SNL Alumni Chris Rock will executive produce a pilot starring Thompson. The pilot will be shot for NBC. Sources report Thompson will play a newly widowed father who navigates through single parenthood “while begrudgingly letting his persistent father-in-law become more involved in” his family’s life.
“All That” aired from 1994 to 2005 and helped introduce a slew of future stars like Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, Kel Mitchell and Jamie Lynn Spears. All of whom are expected to make an appearance in the reboot. It was one of Nickelodeon’s highest rating shows back in the day, we hope it can recreate the magic and build another great show.
