Ready yet, get set, it’s All That! Nickelodeon’s All That revival has been extended for thirteen more episodes!
Cast member Reece Caddell shared the cast’s chant before each show as well as her excitement that there will be more episodes. She joined AfterBuzz TV and filled the studio with energy discussing her reaction to the news.
“When we found out [about the new episodes], it was like, our, like, it was like someone had just like dropped a bomb of sparkles and unicorns,” Caddell said, “cause suddenly everyone was jumping up and down. We were all like, ‘oh my gosh.’ It was, it was just such a rad moment to be in.”
For everyone who isn’t a nineties kid, All That initially aired from 1994 until 2005 and was the staple of most nineties children’s lives. Most of us nineties kids tuned in every week to watch talent such as Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg, and (eventually) Amanda Bynes. Every Saturday night, kids around the world tuned in to SNICK—Nickelodeon’s Saturday night lineup—to catch All That among other shows.
Brian Robbins, who initially created the show and is currently Nickelodeon’s president, decided he wanted to revive All That. In early 2019, he announced there’d be an All That revival which has brought a new generation to a show once loved by so many kids.
Caddell, who began acting in commercials at the age of five, ended up on projects such as Comedy Bang! Bang!, The Millers, and Schooled before landing the gig on All That.
She’s played a very integral part of this revival even though she’s had some very big shoes to fill. On the very first episode, she took over an original segment called Vital Information With Lori Beth Denberg, and Caddell has hit the ground running. She told AfterBuzz TV about the special bond she shares with the rest of the cast and discussed how thrilled she was to learn that Aria Brooks would be joining in the upcoming episodes.
“We loved her!” Caddell exclaimed. “She, we clicked immediately. She is so sweet. She has such a, like a distinct sense of humor. All of us have different senses of humor, and hers like completely just immediately fit in. We love her so much.”
Near the end of the interview, as a fun way to wrap up, AfterBuzz host Jeff Williams asked Cadell what character she hopes to play next, and Caddell instantly replied without a beat.
“Umm, I would like to be an alien in a sketch,” she said. “cause I think that would be really cool, and we could have, like, long ears or something.”
Fortunately, we’ve got another thirteen episodes to look forward to, and Caddell just might get the chance to play an alien. Be sure to tune in and listen to her interview with AfterBuzz TV!
There’s no news yet for when All That will return, but until then we’ve got the Are You Afraid of the Dark revival currently airing on YouTube for your 2k19, nineties fix!
