Ever since it premiered on Nickelodeon in September 2015, Game Shakers has been a fan-favorite series! The show lasted for three seasons and 61 episodes before coming to an end in June 2019.
Starring Cree Cicchino, Madisyn Shipman, Benjamin Flores Jr., Thomas Kuc and Kel Mitchell, the show followed two seventh graders who come up with a video game called “Sky Whale” for a school project. After the game becomes successful, the BFFs start a company called Game Shakers and team up with a famous rapper and his son.
“It’s so awesome,” Kel told TIME in September 2015 about the show. “It’s about two girls from Brooklyn that code, and they make this amazing gaming app and it blows up overnight and they become millionaires. The only problem is that they use background music from a hip hop mogul and they didn’t ask him, and that hip hop mogul is played by me.”
He continued, “So, it’s this gaming company, where we make cool apps, and we also have great music because the whole hip hop world aspect of it. It’s really fun.”
At the time, the actor also got real about returning to Nickelodeon all these years later.
“It’s so crazy because I have the moms coming up to me that watched me in the ’90s and then also their daughters and sons are going crazy over the current shows that I’m on,” Kel shared at the time.
Madisyn, who also starred in the show, also spoke about Game Shakers while chatting with Kidsday in May 2017.
“I think me and Kenzie Bell have more similarities throughout the years,” the Nickelodeon alum said of her character. “This is the third year coming up, and I feel Kenzie has become a part of me and I have become a part of her. She is kind of like my other half.”
Now that the show’s officially over and these stars left their Nickelodeon days behind, they’ve all gone on to have some pretty successful careers. What exactly have the Game Shakers stars been up to since the show’s finale more than a year ago? Scroll through our gallery to find out!
