The original film followed a distracted teenager and his new co-worker as they attempted to save the aging burger joint where they had worked since closing after a new burger joint opened across the street. The film was based on a sketch from the Nickelodeon series All that.

Nickelodeon Studios will oversee production on the new film, which will be released later this year on Paramount+.

In a press release, the two companies said production would begin in May.

“Filled with comedy, cameos and many Easter eggs from the original, Good Burger 2 will unite fan nostalgia and a new generation of viewers for another wild and hilarious adventure from Good Burger,” said Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, co-directors of Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Live-Action.

Tanya Giles, Programming Director of Paramount Streaming, added: “Good Burger 2 will be a great addition to our 2023 lineup list and is sure to serve anything All that fans and new viewers alike will enjoy.

Paramount Pictures released the first film. The cast also included Sinbad, Shar Jackson and the late Abe Vigoda. The comedy was directed by Brian Robbins.

The sequel will follow Dexter Reed (Thompson) and the original cashier, Ed (Mitchell), as they reunite in the present day at the Good Burger fast food restaurant with a new group of employees.

Here is the official description: “Dexter Reed is out of luck after another of his inventions fails. Ed welcomes Dex to Good Burger with open arms and returns his old job. With a new team working at Good Burger, Dex hatches a plan to get back on his feet but unfortunately puts Good Burger’s fate in jeopardy once again.

Phil Traill (The middle, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) is in charge of directing the film. Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert (All that good burger) are writing the screenplay and will also serve as executive producers. James III (Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan, All Thatlisten)) was also exploited as a writer. The film’s production for Nickelodeon Studios is overseen by Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, co-heads of Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Live-Action.
