If you are a 90s kid, you must surely remember the legendary sketch comedy show, ‘All That’. This popular Nickelodeon series aired on the channel from April 16, 1994, to October 22, 2005, spanning 10 seasons and 171 episodes. Curated to attract the young audience, it featured short comedic sketches and performances from musical guests every week. The primary theme of the sketches was to parody modern culture.
The cast comprised a crew of talented child and teen actors and the series itself was branded as a legacy for a decade. It had such a huge impact on children’s television that it was developed into multiple spin-offs and other independent shows. Owing to the immense popularity that it received during its original run, Nickelodeon decided to go for a revival, which dropped in June 2019. Now that the first installment from the reboot has ended, let’s come to the details of its second edition.
All That Season 2 Release Date:
‘All That’ Season 1 premiered on June 15, 2019, on Nickelodeon, as part of the channel’s summer 2019 release schedule. It ended with its 34th episode on August 15, 2020. The reboot was Nick’s attempt to explore and resurrect its past to help secure its future. In fact, this approach forms a part of the platform’s tried-and-tested methods. For example, it has already experimented with creating revivals for other iconic titles such as ‘Hey Arnold’ and ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’. And the trials have proved to be immensely successful.
Such revivals serve a dual purpose — holding the interest of the current generation of children and tempting parents to tune in alongside their kids. The latter simply chooses to revive their nostalgia by remembering their favorite shows and movies that they had enjoyed so much during their growing-up years. Therefore, keeping note of Nick’s long-term goals, ‘All That’ should get a renewal soon enough. And if that happens in the coming months, we can expect ‘All That’ season 2 to premiere sometime in Summer 2021.
All That Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
