Get ready to hear the infamous introduction “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order” because Good Burger 2 is happening.
While speaking with Entertainment tonight, Thompson, 44, said “We’re getting really close on ‘Good Burger 2. It’s gonna happen, and I think it’s gonna happen soon. We’re gonna figure out when the pocket of time will be to shoot it, but it’s gonna happen.”
He continued that, It’s closer than it’s ever been. So, I don’t think anything is gonna derail it.”
He also revealed the script is complete and he and Mitchell, 44, have already had a reading of the script
“We had a reading, like a little private thing just to hear the script that we’ve been working on, out loud — just with a couple friends and a couple people from Paramount and Nickelodeon, and it was so funny,” Thompson teased.
It has officially been 25 years Good Burger was released but according to Thompson, time didn’t change anything between him and Mitchell.
“Kel has not missed a step,” he continued. “It’s like old slippers, and that character is just ripe for jokes. We read like, over 100 pages and laughed the whole time. It was so much fun.”
“It’s on and crackin,'” Thompson added. “That’s all I can say.”
Brian Robbins directed and Dan Schneider, Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert penned the script of the 1997 version. It was based on the Good Burger comedy sketch on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That.

In the years since its release, Good Burger garnered a cult following, particularly among millennials who grew up with the film and the All That television series.
