Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell are hungry to save their jobs in the first full trailer for Paramount+’s comedy sequel Good Burger 2.
The streaming service released the trailer Monday for director Phil Traill’s film that is set to launch Nov. 22. The movie centers on Dexter (Thompson) and Ed (Mitchell) reuniting as staff members at Good Burger as the pair attempt to help the struggling fast food establishment amid its parent company’s plans to grow the brand.

This footage shows plenty of hijinks for the two leads as they get reconnected. “It really means a lot that you came to see me,” Mitchell tells Thompson.
At a different point in the trailer, the guys learn that MegaCorp is planning to expand Good Burger globally but intends to fire the restaurant’s staff. “MegaCorp wants to replace everybody with robots,” Thompson warns. “We gotta do something!”
Jillian Bell and Lil Rel Howery co-star. Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert wrote the script and serve as executive producers alongside John Ryan Jr.
The film is the follow-up to Paramount Pictures’ 1997 feature Good Burger, which was based on the comedy sketch that first ran on the Nickelodeon series All That in 1994.
After launching their careers as child actors on All That, Thompson and Mitchell went on to star in the Nickelodeon spinoff series Kenan & Kel that signed off in July 2000 following four seasons. Thompson joined Saturday Night Live in 2003, and he reunited with Mitchell in an SNL segment that aired in December and focused on a Kenan & Kel revival.
The Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed that Good Burger 2′s Burgermobile will be featured in next month’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which takes place a day after the film debuts.
