'All That' Alums Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server are Back for the Revival - See the First Look

When All That returns to Nickelodeon this summer, there will be some very familiar faces helping usher in the new cast!

Now this is All That.

Back in February during Nickelodeon Upfront 2019, Nickelodeon announced that they were teaming with Kenan Thompson to revive All That, the beloved sketch show that launched the careers of Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Nick Cannon, and Amanda Bynes. On Thursday, the network revealed that Mitchell and fellow original cast members Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server, who were all a part of the debuting cast in 1994 and remained with the show for years, will guest-star in the reboot’s premiere episode, debuting this summer, helping to usher in the new cast.

Executive produced by Thompson, Mitchell and Kevin Kay, All That will feature a new group of kids, but, in addition to returning cast members, it will also revive some classic sketches like Good Burger, Vital Information, and Loud Librarian. The new cast of seven kids will be revealed at a later date.

Jermaine Fowler is serving as consulting producer on the All That revival.

The original All That ran from 1994-2005 on Nickelodeon. The sketched comedy series helped launch the careers of Thompson, Mitchell, Denberg, Server, Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, Gabriel Iglesias and Jamie Lynn Spears, among others.

The return of All That was announced in February 2019 and it's just one of the many revivals in the works at the kid-focused network. A new Rugrats series and movie is in production, as is a new Are You Afraid of the Dark? movie and miniseries.

"We have a laser focus on who kids are today, and what they want, so we are making a wider variety of shows and series for them, and we're working with brand-new kinds of talent and producers," Nickelodeon's president Brian Robbins said in a statement when the reboots were announced. "We have a new creative team in place and a renewed energy that we're harnessing to bring the buzz back to Nick."

The news follows Kenan recently surprising kid rapper Young Dylan with a guest spot on the All That reboot whilst appearing on The Ellen Show.

Talking about the revival earlier this year, Thompson told Page Six: “I think all the old cast members should come support the new cast members. That’s just how it should go,” he told us.

Former cast member Danny Tamberelli (The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Figure It Out) told Page Six of the revival, “I think it’s awesome!” He also said he would love to be part of the series if asked. “It was one of the best times of my life,” he said.

The show is set to premiere in summer 2019.
