Kel Mitchell, the famed child star who began his career on the popular Nickelodeon series including All That and Kenan & Kel, is headed back to the network for a new show.
The 36-year-old will play the starring role in a sitcom titled Game Shakers. It’s about a pair of 12-year-old girls who start a multi-million gaming company and are now in need of a business partner. That’s where Mitchell comes in. He portrays a rapper named Double G.
It sounds hilarious already.
“When Kel is doing scenes on our new show, Game Shakers, we all laugh so hard on set, just like we did 20 years ago,” Dan Schneider, the creator of the Game Shakers and Kenan and Kel, told Variety. “It feels new, but also very familiar. Sometimes I have to think to myself, ‘Wait, is this 1995 or 2015?’”
For those of us who grew up in the 90s, it might be worth it to check out the beloved actor as he takes on a fresh role.
Stay tuned for an airdate. We’ll keep you posted.
