All That's fifth season ran from December 12, 1998 to October 16, 1999. The season contained 21 episodes, with a 100th Episode special midway and a backstage pass episode.


The show saw many changes before the start of this season. Lori Beth Denberg leaving the series at the end of the previous season. Since she was one of the original cast members, her characters and presence was missed by fans alike. Since Denberg was the anchor of Vital Information, a new anchor was needed to fill the segment. Danny Tamberelli succeeded Denberg in the Vital Information sketch, and Tamberelli was given a new set and a new desk unlike that of Denberg's Vital Information.

Featured cast members Victor-Cohn Lopez and Zach Mclemore were both dropped from the show. Producers hired Nick Cannon and Mark Saul to fill the gap they left behind. Like that of Lopez and Mclemore, both Saul and Cannon were both put into featured status. However, producers did not bring on any replacement for Denberg, leaving the cast to only have two female cast members.

Like Mitchell and Thompson years earlier, producers offered Bynes her own show. Bynes's popularity with the audience was huge. Producers saw their chance to capitalize on her fame and gave her own show. The show would be known as The Amanda Show.

This would be the final season for original cast members Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson. For most of the season Mitchell was absent for 9 episodes, because he was off filming the movie Mystery Men. Mitchell and Thompson would both go on to film the final season of their own show and then leave Nickelodeon to venture into Hollywood.

This season was filmed from September 1998 to April 1999.
