Now Playing: Netflix's Best New Movies & TV Shows Releasing In February 2019

The '90s are back! All That, the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show that launched the career of longtime Saturday Night Live star Kenan Thompson, is making a comeback at the network. And this time, Thompson is helping the spearhead the revival.

The news comes from Variety, which reports that a new take on the show is in the works with a fresh cast. However, it's expected that some former cast members will appear in one way or another on the new All That. What's more, Thompson has signed on as an executive producer on the project.

"It means everything to me," the actor explained. "It was my first job that I ever had. It gave me an opportunity."

He's not kidding. Not only did All That put Thompson on TV weekly, but he also starred in the Kenan & Kel spin-off with Kel Mitchell, Additionally, the two turned one of the show's sketches into the feature-length Good Burger movie. Of course, he also landed roles in the Mighty Ducks franchise and a long list of other shows and films, which eventually brought him to SNL. Now he's hoping lightning will strike twice, creating a new generation of sketch comedians.

"We think there's a great opportunity to find the next pool of stars," Nickelodeon president Brian Robins said. "We want to bring the show back in a real fun way. This summer, we are going to bring back a lot of the original cast and the cast through the years, and let them introduce the new cast of All That to the world."

All That isn't the only Nick show seeing new life on the network, though. As it celebrates its 20th anniversary, Spongebob Squarepants is planning a spin-off. While no details about who the spin-off would follow have been announced, Robbins sees the potential in expanding the franchise. "That's our Marvel universe," he explained to Variety. "You have this amazing show that’s run for almost twenty years."

We're already afraid of what Spongebob's version of Infinity War will be like.
