Nickelodeon's 'Double Dare' revival got even more exciting as the comedy duo Kenan and Kel are set to reunite for the rebooted series. Kel Mitchell confirmed their involvement in a recent interview, where he stated that he and Kenan will be "playing against each other" in an upcoming episode.

"I am so excited to be playing on Double Dare and for a whole new generation of kids to experience this iconic game show," he told 'Entertainment Weekly' and promised that his and Kenan's appearance will be "special." "We are both huge fans of Double Dare! I can't wait to see the super talented Liza Koshy rock it as the new host!" Kel added.

The show will premiere on Monday at 8 pm ET on Nickelodeon and the new version of 'Double Dare' features actress Liz Koshy as host, while original host Marc Summers returns to give color commentary on the challenges. 


The episode with Kenan and Kel will air later this summer and they will be joined by fellow 'All That' alum Lori Beth Denberg. The trio previously reunited in February on Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘n Ouet.

'Double Dare's' revival was announced earlier this year with kids' TV channel, Nickelodeon, revealing an order for 40 brand-new episodes that are set to air this summer. 'Double Dare' originally aired way back in 1986 till 1993, where the competition saw two teams go head-to-head across a series of intellectual, physical and downright messy challenges. The show is also popular for its edible slime. 

Nickelodeon released a short trailer for the new show on April 25, featuring clips of the original series. It teased that the "biggest", "messiest" and "most anticipated" game show will be back soon for a whole new generation.

However, 'Double Dare' isn't the only classic kids' programme making a comeback. BBC gameshow 'Raven' was revived with a new host last year, with Aisha Toussaint taking over from previous Raven James Mackenzie. A new 'Moomins' series is currently being developed with CGI animation, with the aim to launch 13 new episodes in 2019. And there's SM:TV remake, which former hosts Ant & Dec and Cat Deeley will be back with a 20th-anniversary reunion.
