“I can’t believe it’s been just over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger!” Thompson shared in a statement (via Variety).

“To be a part of something that so many generations of people have come to love has made me so proud and now to be back where it all started working on the sequel is surreal!

“I love performing with my brother Kel and I can’t wait to show fans what these characters have been up to since we last saw them.”

Mitchell added, “Ed is one of those timeless characters who has brought so much joy and laughter to fans, and it’s such a beautiful blessing to still be doing that after all these years.

“It’s amazing to come back and continue the stories of Dex, Ed and Good Burger, both for the people who grew up watching and for their children.”
