What’s the only thing that could make you more excited about Nickelodeon's Double Dare revival? How about a Double Dare revival with Kenan and Kel?

EW has revealed that Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell — two Nickelodeon legends — are returning to the network to compete on a special edition of the classic game show!

Update (25/10): GMA today announced the aweslime news that Nickelodeon will premiere the brand-new Double Dare special "Team Kel vs. Team Kenan" on Wednesday, November 21!

“I am so excited to be playing on Double Dare and for whole new generation of kids to experience this iconic game show,” says Mitchell. “This episode will be double special because Kenan and I will be playing against each other and we are both huge fans of Double Dare! I can’t wait to see the super talented Liza Koshy rock it as the new host!”

Premiering Monday, the new version of Double Dare features digital creator and actress Liz Koshy as host, while original host Marc Summers returns to give color commentary on the challenges.

Also set to appear with Mitchell and Thompson on their episode, which airs later this summer, is fellow All That alum Lori Beth Denberg.

Additional series guests will include Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey 101), Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), Chloe Kim and Lindsey Vonn.
