Criminal Minds Sneak Peek: The Team Has a Reluctant Unsub
Fresh out the box, Nickelodeon is coming at you with a revival of the ’90s classic All That.
According to Variety, the network is working on bringing back the beloved sketch comedy series geared toward teens, with Kenan Thompson serving as an executive producer. The OG show, which ran from 1994-2005, launched the careers of people like Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Amanda Bynes, Jamie Lynn Spears and Nick Cannon. This new iteration would follow the same format but feature an all-new cast, while still calling back to the original.
Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins, who co-created All That and executive-produced during its original run, says the plan is to introduce the new crew with help from some OG cast members as soon as this summer.

“We want to bring the show back in a real fun way. This summer, we are going to bring back a lot of the original cast and the cast through the years, and let them introduce the new cast of All That to the world,” Robbins told Variety. He added that the new show could be “a sort of mash-up of some of the old sketches and a lot of new sketches.”
Although Thompson will produce, don’t expect him to be too heavily involved. With a packed schedule that includes being a full-time cast member on Saturday Night Live (currently the longest-running cast member in the show’s history) and several other shows in the works, his time is pretty limited. But perhaps we’ll see him make an appearance here and there. One can hope, right?
