Soon, the famous catchphrase will have to get updated. We’ll get to say, “Welcome to Good Burger…2, home of the sequel.” And that’s because Good Burger 2 is officially a go at Paramount+. And happily, the original movie’s stars, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, will return for the sequel. We couldn’t imagine a Good Burger movie without them.
According to Variety, production on Good Burger 2 will begin in May, and we may even see the sequel to the iconic Nickelodeon film sometime this year. The official logline for the movie actually tells us quite a bit about what we can expect.
It shares about Good Burger 2:
Dexter Reed (Thompson) is down on his luck after another one of his inventions fails. Ed (Mitchell) welcomes Dex back to Good Burger with open arms and gives him his old job back. With a new crew working at Good Burger, Dex devises a plan to get back on his feet but unfortunately puts the fate of Good Burger at risk once again.
Poor Dex. It’s a hard world out there. But at least Good Burger and Ed are there for him… We just hope they won’t regret it. Of course, we know everything will likely turn out okay in this comedy of errors and give us a lot of laughs as it does.
“Good Burger” began life as a sketch on Nickelodeon’s All That and then turned into a cult classic ’90s movie. In fact, Good Burger recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. And now, it’s coming back for seconds. Thompson shares in a statement:
I can’t believe it’s been a little over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger! Being a part of something so many generations of people have come to love has made me so proud and now to be back where it all began working on the sequel is surreal! Love performing with my brother Kel and can’t wait to show the fans what these characters have been up to since we last saw them.
That just goes to show you it’s never too late to revisit a story that’s loved. Good Burger 2 does not yet have an official release date, but it should release sometime in 2023.
