From AfterBuzz TV:


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!

Actress Aria Brooks talks working on Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings on Netflix and more

During a recent interview with singer and actress Aria Brooks, we discussed her work on Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings series, Nickelodeon’s All That revival, and much more. Continue reading for additional details.
Aria Brooks is a rising star who has been picking up roles on major projects. Brooks recently played part in Harriet, and now she’s appearing in the Netflix series, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings.

For anyone unfamiliar with Heartstrings, the Netflix series consists of eight episodes that center around stories adapted from Dolly Parton’s most famous songs. The stories told are rather wholesome, touching on themes perfect for the holiday season. “If I Had Wings” being a good example.

As for Brooks, she appears in the episode entitled “Cracker Jack” as the adorable Nola. We don’t want to give too much away if you haven’t seen it, but we will say that Brooks had an excellent performance for her first Netflix appearance.

In addition to a part on Netflix’s Heartstrings, Aria Brooks can also be seen in Nickelodeon’s All That revival. It was resurrected in 2019, but fans will have to wait a few weeks to see more. A release date for the next episode has yet to be announced, though our guess is it’ll happen towards the beginning of the year rather than after an extended hiatus.

For more on Aria Brooks’ upcoming projects, you can check out the transcript of our interview with the young actress [here].


HR: Speaking of future projects, you’ve been cast on Nickelodeon’s revival of ​All That​ and you’re a series regular on the sketch comedy series. What, if anything, can you tell us about your work on the show?

Brooks: Working on All That has been a dream come true. I get to work with seven talented and very funny castmates who have become my extended family. The sketches that I’ve been in have truly challenged my improv skills and pushed me to make a variety of choices without second-guessing myself. I’ve also had to do a ton of research which, luckily for me, is watching TV and movies. I also get to work with some of the original All That stars and they are very helpful on set.

HR: Did you participate in any particular sketches that you believe will make a big impression on audiences?

Brooks: The writers are constantly coming up with new sketches and characters for me that are guaranteed to leave a big impression on the audience. Be sure to check out the new episodes in January.

HR: Having already worked on the show, did the notion of participating in a revival make you nervous while preparing for the role? I ask because reboots and revivals tend to garner a lot of harsh criticisms regardless of content, so did that place any sort of pressure on you?

Brooks: I was a little nervous joining the reboot cast because I wanted the approval of the original All That fans, but people are harsh critics regardless. I eventually became more concerned about doing a good job on set and, making sure I could handle the responsibilities of being a series regular. Of course, I hope old and new fans enjoy the show, but my focus is to just do the best I can.

HR: Outside of your on-screen acting, do you have any live performances coming up? And are you working on any new music at the moment?

Brooks: I don’t have any live performances scheduled…yet. I am working on music so that when the time comes to release my album, I’ll be ready.

HR: Are you collaborating with any artists on your music-based projects?

Brooks: There are no plans yet, but I’m always open to collaborating with other up and coming artists in the future.

Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings is currently streaming on Netflix. Nickelodeon’s All That returns in 2020
