The first episode will include a performance by the Jonas Brothers and feature original cast members Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server. They’ll reprise some of their most memorable roles, including Mitchell as fast-food slacker “Ed,” and Denberg as “Ms. Hushbaum.”
The series, shot in front of a live studio audience, will feature performances from artists like Ally Brooke and Kane Brown as the season goes on.
The original All That was always considered to be a Saturday Night Live for tweens, spawning the careers of Thompson, Mitchell, Amanda Bynes, Nick Cannon, Jamie Lynn Spears, Drake Bell and more. Its stars went on to lead their shows such as The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, Kenan & Kel and more, as well as the film Good Burger, birthed from an All That segment.
The revival series premieres Saturday, June 15, at 8:30 pm on Nickelodeon.
