Kenan and Kel reunite at the Emmys 2022

The Emmys gave fans a big dose of ’90s nostalgia on Monday night with a “Kenan & Kel” reunion.

During the show, host Kenan Thompson was performing a bartender skit with Kumail Nanjiani, who was the “honorary” bartender for the night, before pointing him to a man waiting for a drink at the bar.

As Thompson approached the slumped over Kel Mitchell, whose identity was still unknown, the “Good Burger” actor jumped up to surprise his former “All That” co-star.

“You know what… can I get a good burger?,” Mitchell quipped as the “SNL” alum yelled before embracing his former partner saying, “let’s make it two good burgers.”
