Good Burger premiered on July 25, 1997. The film followed an absent-minded teenager and his new co-worker as they tried to save the aging burger joint where they worked from closing after a new burger restaurant opened across the street.

The movie was based on a sketch from Nickelodeon series All That starring Thompson and Mitchell alongside Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon.

Good Burger earned $23.7 million at the box office and became a classic with fans.

In May of this year, Nickelodeon Studios and Paramount+ announced production on the sequel was getting underway.

Here’s the official description for the new film: “Dexter Reed is down on his luck after another one of his inventions fails. Ed 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.”

Good Burger 2 is produced by Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. Phil Traill (The Middle, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) directs from a script written by Kevin Kopelow & Heath Seifert (All That, Good Burger), who also serve as executive producers alongside John Ryan Jr. from Artists for Artists.
