The Long-Awaited Return to Good Burger
“Good Burger 2,” the much-anticipated sequel to the 1997 cult classic “Good Burger,” has finally graced our screens, reuniting fans with the iconic duo, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. Based on a popular sketch from Nickelodeon’s “All That,” the sequel does more than just rehash old jokes; it propels the quirky characters into new, yet familiar shenanigans.
The Evolution of Dexter and Ed: From Fast Food to Big Dreams
Picking up over 25 years after the original, “Good Burger 2” sees Dexter, played by Kenan Thompson, evolve from a high school student to an ambitious entrepreneur. Despite leaving Good Burger, a calamitous incident involving his flame-resistant spray sets the stage for the second film’s hijinks. Kel Mitchell’s character, Ed, remains delightfully unchanged, a constant in the whirlwind of comedy the film presents.
Good Burger 3: More Than Just a Whiff of Possibility
The sequel’s success has sparked discussions of a third film, and director Phil Trail has hinted at even grander plans for the franchise. While an official announcement is pending, the director’s enthusiasm and the positive audience reception make the prospect of “Good Burger 3” more than just wishful thinking.
“The character of Ed has not changed. He now has a family, he’s got a bunch of kids and a wife, but he himself is still the same old Ed. As that doesn’t change, we can just do it again and again and put them in crazier and crazier situations,” said Phil Trail in a Radio Times interview.

While details are sparse, the potential third film is expected to maintain the zany tone of its predecessors.

I don’t think it has to be limited to a trilogy, it can go on.”
