A source reportedly told TMZ that Mitchell was conscious when admitted and also appeared to be aware of his surroundings.

As previously reported, in Good Burger 2, Kel Mitchell has reprised his role as Ed and Thompson is Dex. They face a new challenge – Mega Good Burger, which has its own burger-flipping robots.

Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell Promise ‘Surprises’ in ‘Good Burger 2’ 

In March of 2023, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell spoke to Entertainment Weekly about Good Burger 2 and how they are both super excited about the upcoming sequel. 

Speaking about reprising his Good Burger role, Mitchell stated it was such a blessing to be Ed again. “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.”

Kel Michell said he constantly hears people saying something about Good Burger when he’s out and about. “I mean, it’s even 5-year-olds that are doing Good Burger birthday parties, and they weren’t even born when we first did Good Burger in ’94. So this is really cool.”

In regards to what fans can expect from the new film, Mitchell said something big is coming. “We have a lot of surprises in the script that we’re excited for people to see.”

He went on to add that he and Thompson were focused on making this film fun and exciting. “We just wanted to make sure that this was a fun watch,” he declared. “For everyone who has watched us over the years.”
