The studio then erupted in applause as Fallon, Thompson and Mitchell all stood on the stage.
"It's such a blessing, man," Thompson told Fallon. "It's unbelievable."
According to Variety, the movie will premiere on Paramount+ later this year with production set to commence in May.
"I can’t believe it’s been a little over 25 years since great customer service was born at Good Burger!" Thompson said in a statement as reported by Thompson. "Being a part of something so many generations of people have come to love has made me so proud and now to be back where it all began working on the sequel is surreal! Love performing with my brother Kel and can’t wait to show the fans what these characters have been up to since we last saw them."
