Just when we all thought we’d never hear “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger. Can I take your order?” again, we’ve been proven wrong.
Nickelodeon Studios and Paramount+ have officially announced the production of Good Burger 2. Production of the sequel will begin in May and is set to premiere later this year exclusively on Paramount+.
The film will follow Dexter Reed as his career seems to be failing. Ed welcomes Dex back to Good Burger and gives him his old job back. Dexter creates a plan to get back on his feet but at the expense of Good Burger, once again.
Thompson and Mitchell On The Good Burger Sequel
Thompson and Mitchell appeared on NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to discuss the news. “It’s such a blessing, man,” Thompson said. “It’s unbelievable.”
“I can’t believe it’s been a little over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger,” Thompson said in a statement. “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!,” he continued. “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.”
Mitchell piggybacked off of that with a statement of his own. “Ed is one of those timeless characters that has brought so much joy and laughter to fans, and it’s such a beautiful blessing to still be doing it after all these years,” he said. “It’s super awesome to come back and continue the stories of Dex, Ed and Good Burger for both the people who grew up watching and their kids.”
Good Burger formed from a sketch on the Nickelodeon series All That. In 1997, Nickelodeon turned the sketch into a full-length film. The film grossed about $24 million with a reported budget of $8 million.
