Get ready, ’90s kids, because Ed and Dexter are on their way back to the small screen. The original Good Burger came careening onto our screens in the summer of 1997 – and after a 26-year wait, we’re finally getting the second chapter in the wacky tales of our favorite purveyors of fast food.
Rather than recasting the beloved main characters, Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson are filling their original roles, making the nostalgia-infused sequel that much sweeter.
Sadly, we still have a few weeks’ wait ahead of us. Good Burger 2 doesn’t hit Paramount Plus until November 22. The first official trailer, however, was released today, giving us a taste of the hilarious antics of Ed and Dex to come.

Good Burger 2 will see Ed and Dex face their toughest challenge yet – Mega Good Burger and its burger-flipping robots. Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street) and Lil Rel Howery (Get Out) fill the roles of villains. More specifically, the cold corporate masterminds out to destroy the humble homeyness of the fast food restaurant by replacing Ed and his coworkers with robots.
‘All That’ Cast Members to Appear in ‘Good Burger 2’
As any Nickelodeon aficionado knows, the Good Burger movie was actually spawned by an All That skit! The kid-driven sketch comedy show included many memorable segments, including Ask Ashley, Everyday French with Pierre Escargot, and Loud Librarian.
Perhaps the most popular, however, was Good Burger, a sketch about a clueless fast food cashier named Ed (Kel Mitchell). The sketch was so popular, in fact, that it eventually led to the Good Burger movie, introducing the secondary main character, Dexter, played by Kenan Thompson, another All That star.
It’s no surprise, then, that Good Burger 2 will bring back some old favorites from the All That days. Lori Beth Denberg and Josh Server, both All That alums, will reprise their original roles.
“Man, it is such a blessing,” Mitchell told Entertainment Weekly back in March. “It’s been an amazing journey for both of us. I don’t think we thought that we would be going back and doing Good Burger at this point, which is so beautiful and it has a special place in people’s hearts.”
“It is such a blessing to be able to be working with my brother again,” Thompson added. “He’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. When we spend hours upon hours upon hours, it’s just all laughs and good times. And I’m really excited to open this new chapter up — this reunited adventure we are going to go on together.”
