For a long time, there were rumors of a feud between All That and Kenan & Kel costars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, but Mitchell insists he has a great relationship with all his former Nickelodeon cohorts.

“We all stay in contact via Twitter and Facebook,” Mitchell says in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “We are all over the place working on different projects, but we all try to stay in contact as much as possible.”

As for his time spent on his hit shows, Mitchell – who has admitted he went through a period of depression in the mid 2000s – says he “enjoyed the entire experience” and he is really seeing the impact of his work now that he’s returned to the network that made him a star on the new sitcom Game Shakers.

“It’s funny. A lot of the fans come up to me, but it’s the mom plus the kid,” says Mitchell, 37, who plays a music mogul working with app-creating tweens on the show. “The mom will be, like, ‘I was following Kel back in the ’90s. I was the original fan.’ And the daughter is, like, ‘I saw him on Sam and Kat.’ It’s pretty awesome. I’ve got the whole family watching now.”
