Amanda Bynes is set to reunite with her All That costars Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli, and Lori Beth Denberg at '90s Con at the Connecticut Convention Center in March.

Bynes and her former Nickelodeon posse will join a roster of other '90s staples, including alums of Blue's Clues (Steve Burns), Double Dare (Marc Summers), Sabrina the Teenage Witch (Melissa Joan Hart, Caroline Rhea, Beth Broderick, Nate Richert, Jenna Leigh Green, Nick Bakay), Saved by the Bell (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley), Hocus Pocus (Omri Katz, Thora Birch, Vinessa Shaw), and more for the nostalgic convention, which will take place from March 17 to 19.

Fans can attend a panel featuring Bynes and her former costars, participate in a meet-and-greet, and take photos with the cast. A replica of Nickelodeon's famed orange couch will also be on deck for photo ops.

"I'm really excited to reunite with my castmates and meet the fans," Bynes said in a statement.

"Last year, I had a blast at '90s Con promoting my book and new single Blessed Mode,'" adds Mitchell, 44, in a statement. "What better way to return than with the All That gang… including Amanda Bynes who will be joining Danny, Lori Beth, and me this year."

"Plus, I will be bringing copies of my new comedy fantasy adventure book Prank Day, and I can't wait to see all the 90's fashion the fans are bringing this year," he adds. "'90s Con is a whole vibe! Let's go!" 

Christina Figliolia and Liliana Kligman, '90s Con and That's4Entertainment founders, told PEOPLE they are "so honored" to host "a mini-reunion" for the cast of All That at the second annual convention.

"Last year was amazing and we cannot wait for this year's show," the pair adds. 


Bynes joined the cast of All That, a sketch-comedy series billed as Saturday Night Live for tweens, during its third season in 1996 and starred in it until 2002. The show led to several spin-offs for its young stars, including Bynes' The Amanda Show, which ran for three seasons between 1999 and 2002. Nickelodeon revived All That in 2019, with original stars Mitchell, Denberg, Kenan Thompson, and Josh Server making cameos throughout its run, and Mitchell and Thompson serving as executive producers.

In addition to Bynes, Mitchell, Tamberelli and Denberg, the series also starred Angelique Bates, Katrina Johnson, Alisa Reyes, Josh Server, Kenan Thompson, Leon Frierson, Christy Knowings, Nick Cannon and Mark Saul across its initial 10-season run.

The series inspired several spinoffs, including Kenan & Kel, Good Burger, and The Amanda Show.

Over the years, the cast have reunited several times. In 2015, Mitchell, Tamberelli, Denberg and Server met up at Comic Con, where they hosted a panel that gave attendees a behind-the-scenes glimpse into All That.

Mitchell, Denberg, Server and Thompson also came together in 2018 for an episode of Cannon's MTV sketch and improv series Wild 'N Out

The following year, Mitchell opened up about working with Bynes back when the two were merely teens looking to become breakout stars in the industry.

"I love Amanda, she's like [my] little sister. She's so fearless," Mitchell told Entertainment Tonight at the time. "I remember her being on set, she told me, 'Hey Kel, I wanna do the physical comedy that you do.' So I used to show her little tricks to do that would make her comedy just awesome."

"She did everything so great, so awesome, she was super fearless," he continued.

At the time, Mitchell also said he wanted Bynes to make a cameo in the All That reboot, produced by his pal Thompson.

"We really want her to do a cameo in All That. We've been talking about that," Mitchell explained. "So, Amanda, come on, girl! Call ya brother up!"

'90s Con marks Bynes' first public event since the termination of her nine-year conservatorship last March. In contrast to Britney Spears' court battle to terminate her conservatorship, Bynes was able to end hers fairly promptly and with the full support of her parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes.

"Lynn is so proud of Amanda and the progress she has made and looks forward to having a mother-daughter relationship with Amanda outside of the conservatorship," Tamar Arminak, a lawyer for Bynes' parents, previously told EW.

Bynes said in her own statement, "In the last several years, I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter."
