A sketch comedy series running on cable just received an expanded episode order along with a new cast member. Nickelodeon announced it has picked up an additional 13 episodes of “All That” and is adding cast member Aria Brooks to the show.

The additional episodes bring the freshman season order for the rebooted show to 26 episodes. New episodes of “All That” air on Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

“All That” is executive produced by Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”), Kel Mitchell (“Game Shakers”), Kevin Kay (“All That,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Lip Sync Battle”) and Jermaine Fowler (“Superior Donuts,” “Sorry to Bother You”). Kevin Kopelow & Heath Seifert (“All That,” “Cousins for Life,” “Austin & Ally”) are also executive producers.

Shot in front of a live studio audience, “All That” stars Ryan Alessi, Reece Caddell, Kate Godfrey, Gabrielle Nevaeh Green, Nathan Janak, Lex Lumpkin and Chinguun Sergelen, who have popularized new characters, impersonations of today’s celebrities and new original comedic sketches including “Cancelled with Nathan,” “Bed, Bath & Beyoncé” and “Marie Kiddo.”

Recording artists the Jonas Brothers, Ciara, H.E.R., JoJo Siwa, Ella Mai, Ally Brooke, Kane Brown, Bryce Vine, Daddy Yankee and CNCO have performed on the show. The series also features appearances from Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg, Josh Server and Alisa Reyes, who helped make the original series a ’90s icon for a generation of kids.

“All That” was Nickelodeon’s longest-running live-action series with 171 episodes across 10 seasons from 1994 to 2005. The franchise paved the way for a number of spinoffs including “Kenan & Kel,” “The Amanda Show” and “The Nick Cannon Show,” and the feature-length film “Good Burger,” along with audio recordings, books, festival tours and numerous reunions.

The show helped launch the careers of comedy stars including Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon, and has featured musical guests and guest stars including Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Ray Romano and Brittany Snow.

Production of “All That” for Nickelodeon is overseen by Shauna Phelan, Senior Vice President, Live-Action Scripted Content. The show was created by Brian Robbins and Mike Tollin.
