Nickelodeon stars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell reunited on “Saturday Night Live” for a fond reboot of their popular ’90s show.
In a mock documentary, host Keke Palmer’s pregnancy once again came into play as her character claimed she pitched a more dramatic reboot of “Kenan and Kel”—dubbed “Kenan and Kelly,” set at Rigby’s. Palmer’s female version of Kel revealed she was pregnant with Thompson’s child.
“Keke was gunning for an Emmy award,” Thompson said.
Devon Walker enters the scene as Kel’s “Good Burger” character, only to be shot down for the role before Mitchell enters the scene making a beeline for the orange soda case. Just at that moment, he is shot by James Austin Thompson in a robbery and convulses on the floor.
“The show is not good, but Jordan Peele called us,” said Thompson. “He wants to do a sequel to ‘Nope.’”
“Kenan and Kel” ran on Nickelodeon for four seasons, from July 15, 1996, to July 15, 2000.
