Kids, most especially kids at heart, take a seat before you continue reading because this one’s a screamer. Nickelodeon is bringing Kenan and Kel back! Yes, you read that right — the 90s comedic powerhouse are returning to the network.
Aw, here it goes! Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell are headed back to Nick for a special episode. But sadly, it wouldn’t be in a Kenan and Kel reboot. The two will be special guests in the Double Dare revival. The game show which first aired in 1986 and ended in 2000 will be returning on June 25.
Kenan and Kel will be competing against each other in the show with messy stunts and challenges.
“I am so excited to be playing on Double Dare and for whole new generation of kids to experience this iconic game show,” Mitchell told Entertainment Weekly.
“This episode will be double special because Kenan and I will be playing against each other and we are both huge fans of Double Dare! I can’t wait to see the super talented Liza Koshy rock it as the new host!”
Mitchell and Thompson were first seen on the sketch-comedy show All That. In 1996, they received their own sitcom. The show’s success led to a pop culture movie, Good Burger.
While the reunion may not be as good as a Kenan and Kel reboot, hardcore Nickelodeon fans will still be happy to see the two comedians together. Marc Summers, the original host of Double Dare, will also be returning as a commentator.
Double Dare will air on Nickelodeon every Monday ay 8:00pm ET.
