All That's sixth season ran from January 15, 2000 to November 4, 2000. This season contained 14 episodes, in addition to 11 specials titled the Best of All That in 1999-2001.

Many changes occurred before the start of this season. Kel Mitchell and Kenan Thompson both left the show halfway through the sixth season. Mitchell and Thompson would both go on to film the final season of Kenan & Kel and then leave Nickelodeon altogether. Producers hired then unknown comic Gabriel Iglesias to replace the absence left by Mitchell and Thompson.

Producers also upgraded Nick Cannon and Mark Saul to repertory status. They were the first cast members in the show's history to survive featured status, unlike that of Tricia Dickson, Victor Cohn-Lopez and Zach McLemore in past seasons.

After 13 episodes the show was put on hiatus. To keep the show running, the producers compiled a series called Best of All That, featuring the season four cast members: Amanda Bynes, Lori Beth Denberg, Kel Mitchell, Josh Server, Danny Tamberelli, and Kenan Thompson. After those six episodes, following were four episodes called "Tunes into TV" (that had skits saluting comedy series), "Peas, Cheese, Bag of Chips" (that had skits featuring food), "Music" (featuring musical guests from past episodes), and "Dates, Goats, and Romance" (which shows clips from skits that had goats, dates, love or even all three elements). Leon Frierson and Christy Knowings did not have Best Of specials.

Eventually, Nickelodeon canceled All That, due to crew disputes and a general desire to move on. However, All That still had a strong following and was one of the most popular shows on the network. Nickelodeon planned to relaunch the show, starting from scratch.

After the season ended, Bynes went on to have a successful film and television career. Nick Cannon got his own show on Nickelodeon called The Nick Cannon Show. After the show ended, he went on to have a successful film and TV career and still has strong ties with Nickelodeon. His current tie with Nickelodeon is his role as "Chairman" of TeenNick, since September 28, 2009. Gabriel Iglesias went on to become a very successful stand-up comedian. Christy Knowings left show business. Leon Frierson left show business to have a normal life. Danny Tamberelli and Mark Saul left show business to focus on school. Josh Server kept strong ties with Nickelodeon and has made guest appearances on current Nickelodeon shows.
