BURBANK, Calif.--Nov. 12, 2018--Kel Mitchell (Game Shakers) and Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live) reunite to compete against one another in a one-hour special episode of Nickelodeon’s iconic game show Double Dare, premiering Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 8:00 pm (ET/PT). Hosted by actress and digital creator Liza Koshy with original Double Dare host Marc Summers providing color commentary, the special will also guest star All That actress and comedian Lori Beth Denberg.

Paired with super fans, Team Kenan and Team Kel tackle some All That-themed trivia questions and compete in a variety of messy physical challenges that include nods to Nickelodeon classics Good Burger and Kenan & Kel. The winning team will then run an epic eight-piece Double Dare obstacle course for the grand prize. After the winners have been crowned, Kenan and Kel run the obstacle course together, in an attempt to win money for their favorite charities.

Double Dare premiered on Oct. 6, 1986, on Nickelodeon, and ran from 1986-1993, making it the network’s longest-running game show. Marc Summers served as the show’s original host from 1986-1993. Shortly after its debut, Double Dare became one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The series went into syndication in 1988 and later revived as Super Sloppy Double Dare in 1989. The show also ran on broadcast television as Family Double Dare in 1988, followed by new versions on Nick, including Double Dare 2000.

Kenan & Kel Take on the Double Dare Obstacle Course | Nick

Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell are going head-to-head on Double Dare! Liza Koshy hosts the epic 90s Nickelodeon showdown featuring special guest All That cast member, Lori Beth Denberg. Who do you think is gonna win? Kenan or Kel? Let me know in the comments below! And catch this hour-long celebrity edition of Double Dare November 21st at 8p/7c on Nickelodeon!

Update (11/19): Kenan Thompson revealed during Saturday's (November 19, 2018) brand-new episode of Saturday Night Live that he would love to work on Kenan & Kel again!

It all began with a audience member asking episode host Steve Carell the simple question: “Will you ever reboot The Office?" The host said no, so SNL cast member Kenan Thompson stood up and framed it as more of a suggestion. Carell explained that reprising his role as the lunatic Dunder Mifflin Paper Company manager would be like Thompson returning full-time to the Nickelodeon sitcom Kenan & Kel, on which he starred with Kel Mitchell from 1996 through 2000.

“That would be an honour,” Thompson solemnly replied.

One by one, former Office cast members popped up from their seats in the audience. “I need that money,” said Ellie Kemper, who played secretary Erin Hannon on the show. “Let’s get that money, Steve.” When he declined, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actress yelled, “You’re a jerk!”

Ed Helms, who played Dunder Mifflin salesman Andy Bernard, also argued in favour of a reboot. Maybe Carell didn’t understand just how much money it would make them. “You wouldn’t have to do all those sad movies anymore,” Helms said, referring to Carell’s recent roles, such as a panicked father in Beautiful Boy.
